Daniel Tiger is sleeping late and Dad Tiger goes in his room to wake him up. After using the potty, Daniel makes up a song as he picks out his sweater for school.

For breakfast, Daniel and his parents enjoy a bowl of hot blueberry oatmeal. As he stirs his oatmeal, hidden blueberries rise to the top.

With breakfast finished, Daniel moves on to the bathroom where he brushes his teeth. Using his extra-bubbly toothpaste, he make-believes that he is in a world of bubbles. Unfortunately, the make-believing distracts him from actually brushing his teeth until he is reminded to do so by his dad.

Next, Daniel goes to put on his shoes but finds himself playing instead of getting ready for school and the Trolley leaves without him. Fortunately, Katerina Kittycat sees that Daniel has just missed his ride and the trolley returns for him.


  • "Clothes on, eat breakfast, brush teeth, put on shoes, and off to school."
