Purchase/Stream: Amazon

Daniel Tiger are playing outside with a homemade Trolley when it starts to rain. X the Owl recognizes Daniel and O's disappointment and encourages them to make a new plan for the rainy day.

The friends decide to have an inside Trolley adventure. Using various items found inside, Daniel and O create an indoor garden and beach. Unfortunately, they have difficulty deciding which one to visit first. Making a plan, they create a map to help them plan out their trip.

Stopping first at the pretend garden, Daniel and O collect various foods before moving on to the pretend beach where they have a picnic and make-believe that they meet a sea creature.

Using books of various colors, Daniel and O make a rainbow on the stairs -- the last stop on their trip.


  • "If there's a problem, talk about it and make a plan."

Live Action Segment

The live action segment following this episode includes two children who create their own treasure hunt.



The "big problem" theme of this episode is somewhat similar to the idea behind Peg + Cat -- a show also produced by the Fred Rogers Company.

Daniel's silly sea creature looks similar to one of the accessories found in the Daniel's Bathtub Voyage playset and the Bath Time Daniel Tiger playset.
