THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Daniel Gets a Shot

Episode 118
Title Daniel Gets a Shot
A Stormy Day
Air Date February 1, 2013
 

Daniel Tiger takes Tigey for a ride on his toy trolley before Mom Tiger reminds Daniel that he has an appointment with Doctor Anna. Nervous about getting a shot, Daniel hides under the covers on his bed.

Mom Tiger explains that shots are a type of medicine that can keep a person from getting sick -- they only hurt for a little bit and then it's over. She encourages Daniel to close his eyes and think of something happy in order to take his mind off his fears.

Using a pretend doctor kit, Daniel gives his mom a shot in the arm as she closes her eyes and thinks of something happy. Daniel wears his blanket like a cape and make-believes that he is Super Daniel.

At Doctor Anna's office, Daniel is called back for his appointment. After a check-up, Daniel gets a shot while thinking about something happy.


Strategy

  • "Close your eyes and think of something happy."
