Daniel Tiger is playing astronauts with Miss Elaina and they board their cardboard rocket ship to blast off to the moon. Daniel's tummy begins to rumble and he needs to go potty. After he flushes and washes, play continues...but Daniel soon realizes that his tummy still hurts. Mom Tiger suggests that Daniel may need to go poop.

As he returns to the bathroom, Daniel make-believes that he is at a space station in outer space.

Feeling better, Daniel rejoins Miss Elaina for more "space exploration" in Margaret's room where they notice an unpleasant smell. Mom explains that babies go potty in a diaper.

When Daniel and Miss Elaina continue their space adventure, Miss Elaina recognizes that she needs to potty, too, and makes a stop in the bathroom.


  • "Do you have to go potty? Maybe yes. Maybe no. Why don't you sit and try to go."
