Fruit Picking Day

Daniel Goes to the Potty is the second half of episode eleven of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. It aired on September 17, 2012, along with Prince Wednesday Goes to the Potty.


Daniel needs to use the bathroom at Music Man Stan's Shop, but thinks he will have to wait until he gets home, however he was wrong.


Daniel Striped Tiger's trumpet is not working so Daniel goes to the bathroom, and they go to the music store. Music Man fixes the trumpet and Daniel Striped Tiger plays it while Music Man Stan plays the trombone. Daniel dances and then goes to the bathroom and makes believe that the things in the bathroom are dancing. Dad shows him the potties and Music Man Stan apparently goes to the bathroom, too.


Major Roles Minor Roles


  • Daniel Striped Tiger asks "Is that a dance move?" and Daniel replies "Sort of" which could imply that he had been dancing before he needed to go.
  • As in the Prince Wednesday Goes To The Potty episode, the song implies that if you need to go to the toilet you definitely will wiggle and if you are wiggling you definitely need to go to the toilet, which is not true.
  • Despite Daniel going on the potty, the sound of him going is never heard at all.
  • Also, this is a potty-training episode but Daniel and his friends are four. Four year olds should be saying they have to go to the bathroom and not "potty" since "potty" is mainly used by 2 and 3 year olds.
