Daniel Tiger is outside helping his Mom in the garden when they hear a ringing sound. Daniel investigates and finds that Dad Tiger has brought him a brand new bicycle. The bike -- complete with a basket and bell -- belonged to Dad Tiger when he was young and has been fixed up for Daniel to ride.

Setting out on his first bike ride, Daniel realizes that riding a bicycle is going to take practice. Dad Tiger encourages him to keep trying: "Grr-grr-grr out loud. Keep on trying, and you'll feel proud."

Daniel rides his new bike to the park where he shows it to Prince Wednesday and Chrissie. On the playground, Prince Wednesday has trouble crossing the rings and Daniel encourages him to keep trying. Daniel make-believes that he has to swing on rings to get wherever he wants to go.


  • "Grr-grr-grr out loud. Keep on trying, and you'll feel proud."
