Daniel Tiger is at the treehouse playing with Katerina Kittycat and O the Owl when they open up O's science kit to find a magnifying glass and a bubble wand.

Katerina is having fun making bubbles when Henrietta Pussycat arrives to take Katerina to the grocery store. Katerina does not want to leave the bubble wand behind and expresses her jealousy over O's science kit. After talking about her jealous feelings, Katerina is invited back to play with the wand again in the future.

When O and Daniel find bugs to look at through the magnifying glass, they make-believe that they are dancing with the bugs. The more fun they have, the more Daniel wants a magnifying glass of his own. X the Owl recognizes that Daniel is feeling jealous of O's science kit as well and reminds Daniel that he does not need a magnifying glass to be a scientist. They join O as they continue exploring.


  • "When you feel jealous, talk about it and we'll figure something out."
