Daniel Tiger arrives at school where he joins his friends in the block corner. Daniel is amazed by the tall tower Prince Wednesday is building and helps him to build it even taller.

Teacher Harriet comes to check on the children and finds Prince Wednesday needing to go to the potty. Since he does not want to stop playing to go to the bathroom, Teacher Harriet places a sign on Prince Wednesday's blocks to tell others not to play with them while he is gone.

Prince Wednesday uses the potty and washes his hands before returning to the block corner where Daniel make-believes that he and all of his friends use the potty at the same time. Meanwhile, Miss Elaina builds the "smallest tower in the world." When Daniel tries to do something similar, he realizes that he needs to go potty. Prince Wednesday places the sign on Daniel's blocks while Daniel uses the potty.

They sing a song about the importance of going to the potty right away when you feel the need.


  • "When you have to potty, stop and go right away."
  • "Flush and wash and be on your way."
