THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Daniel Plays at Jodi's House

Episode 404
Title Jodi's First Day of School
Daniel Plays at Jodi's House
Air Date September 18, 2018

After school, Daniel goes to the Platypus house while Mom Tiger finishes work. A bit nervous, Daniel wonders what kinds of things he will do there. When Jodi takes off her shoes at the door and puts on slippers, Daniel is confused. Dr. Platypus recognizes his uneasiness and encourages Daniel: "Wherever you go, you can find something you know to help you feel better."

Daniel make-believes that he is trying on all kinds of different shoes.

On the floor, Daniel joins Jodi and her brothers for a game of Timber where they stack blocks in a particular way. Unfamiliar with the game, Daniel looks elsewhere for something recognizable. Finding a ball, it turns out that the ball is used in Timber by rolling it at the stacked blocks. Taking his turn, Daniel enjoys the new game he has learned.

At snack time, Daniel finds that they Platypus family uses different fruits in their fruit salad than those he is used to. Nana encourages him to find fruits in the salad that he is familiar with. Jodi encourages Daniel to try the kiwi.

Having finished her work, Mom Tiger arrives to pick up Daniel.

Notes

  • When served a bowl of fruit salad, Daniel is careful to check that there are no peaches in the bowl. Daniel is allergic to peaches, a fact discussed in Episode 303.
  • Unfamiliar with kiwi, Daniel reminds himself that he should "try new food, it might taste good." This was the strategy taught in Episode 116.
