Daniel Tiger is playing hide-and-seek with his baby sister Margaret. When Margaret begins chasing him, Daniel stumbles over one of his toys and hurts his ankle. With his ankle slightly swollen, Mom Tiger decides to take Daniel to see Doctor Anna.

At Doctor Anna's office, she does her best to help Daniel feel comfortable before she begins checking his ankle. After explaining how an x-ray machine works, Doctor Anna takes an x-ray of Daniel's ankle and determines that he has only suffered a minor sprain. She wraps his ankle with a cloth bandage to help it heal.

Daniel make-believes that he can see inside lots of things around him.

Leaving the doctor's office, Daniel finds Katerina Kittycat in the waiting room with her mother. Katerina has hurt her wrist and Daniel reassures her that the doctor's office is nothing to be afraid of.
