Katerina Kittycat is coming over so Daniel joins Mom Tiger on a trip to the market to pick up the ingredients they need to make veggie pizza. Mom Tiger asks Daniel to use the potty before they go, but Daniel insists that he does not need to go. Not far into their trip, Daniel needs to potty and the Trolley takes them home. Mom reminds Daniel that it is always a good idea to try to potty before leaving the house: "Do you have to go potty? Maybe yes. Maybe no. Why don't you sit and try to go."

While he sits on the potty, Daniel make-believes that he's on a potty adventure!

Before leaving for the market a second time, Daniel reminds Mom Tiger that she should try to use the potty.

Prince Tuesday is working at the market and informs Daniel that Katerina and her mother were there earlier but have gone home. Daniel and his mom purchase what they need for veggie pizza and stop by the tree house on the way home. Katerina is reminded to go potty before she boards Trolley for the Tiger's house.

Back at their house, Mom, Daniel, and Katerina make veggie pizza.


  • "Do you have to go potty? Maybe yes. Maybe no. Why don't you sit and try to go."
