THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Daniel's Very Different Day

Episode 318
Title Daniel's Very Different Day
Class Trip to the Library
Air Date September 6, 2017

Daniel Tiger is painting a picture for Katerina Kittycat and drips paint on his sweater. Mom Tiger helps Daniel feel better when his favorite red sweater has to go in the wash: "Things may change and that's okay. Today we can do things a different way." Daniel feels comfortable changing into a t-shirt instead.

At the bakery, Daniel plans to pick up pink cupcakes for the pink picnic he is planning with Katerina. Baker Aker compliments him on his new t-shirt but Daniel is disappointed to find that he is out of pink cupcakes. With some encouragement from Dad Tiger, Daniel decides that something different -- a pink strawberry cake -- would be just as good.

Daniel make-believes that he is making music with everything in the bakery.

Arriving at the treehouse, Daniel is disappointed to learn that Katerina is feeling sick and will not be able to have a pink picnic. He gives the picture he painted to Henrietta Pussycat and goes home where he enjoys a rainbow picnic with his family.
