Daniel Tiger and his friends are making "just like me" paintings at school. As they paint outlines of their bodies, Daniel needs the red paint but Miss Elaina is using it. When she passes the paint to Daniel, it spills on his paper and he becomes angry. In his anger, he accidentally rips Miss Elaina's picture. Teacher Harriet helps the friends to calm down and responsibly talk out their anger.

Enjoying the many colors in his painting, Daniel make-believes that he is painting the whole neighborhood!

After he finishes his painting, Daniel joins O the Owl and Prince Wednesday who are playing on the mat. O the Owl is making a town and Prince Wednesday is pretending he is on a camp ground -- both in need of pretend trees from the table. O becomes angry when Prince Wednesday takes the trees he was using. Both friends take a deep breath and count to four before calmly resolving their disagreement.


  • "You can be mad at someone you love. When you are ready, give them a hug."
