Daniel Tiger is playing at Prince Wednesday's castle where Prince Tuesday is giving piggy-back rides. King Friday announces that he will be outside in the garden planting a new tree. When Prince Tuesday has to get ready for work, Daniel and his friends are disappointed, but Tuesday encourages them to find something else fun to do.

Looking around, Prince Wednesday finds a kazoo. He and his friends play a musical instrument guessing game. Daniel make-believes that he and his friends are playing lots of different instruments at the same time.

Outside, Daniel and his friends play their pretend music for King Friday who is invited to join in. Busy working in the garden, King Friday is not able to play but he encourages the children to find something else to do.

When a frog hops by, Chrissie makes up a new game called Froggy Freeze.

Notes

As he leaves for work, Prince Tuesday strangely refers to his father as "King Friday."

This is the first episode to feature an animated post-episode short instead of a second live-action segment.

Among others, the strategy from this episode was used in the special episode, Won't You Sing Along With Me?.
