THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

You Are Special

Episode 121
Title You Are Special
Daniel is Special
Air Date February 14, 2013

Daniel Tiger and his friends are about to put on a show at school featuring their special talents. O the Owl is not sure what he will do in the show. Prince Wednesday is the first to perform -- sharing a silly magic trick. When O decides he wants to do a magic trick too, Teacher Harriet encourages him to be himself -- "I like you just the way you are."

Daniel takes the stage next and sings a song about his friends before he make-believes that he's a singing star performing in front of a huge crowd.

Katerina Kittycat twirls and O tries unsuccessfully to do the same. Teacher Harriet and Daniel remind him once again that they like him just the way he is. O thinks some more as Miss Elaina takes the stage for a short puppet show. O also wants to do a puppet show.

Finally, with the help of his friends, O recognizes his own special talents -- reading and finding new things. With his newfound confidence, O takes the stage where he performs a "nifty gallifty flying flip." Daniel wants to do a flip too but is reminded by O that he is special just the way he is.
