Mom Tiger is busy with Margaret which leaves Daniel the opportunity to spend some one-on-one time with his dad. Dad Tiger gives Daniel hints to help him guess the first stop on their day together -- Jungle Beach!

At the beach, Daniel pretends to be Super Daniel as he searches for "tiger seashells" -- orange shells with stripes. Even though they have difficulty finding such a shell, Daniel and his dad agree that it doesn't matter what they do, they just like spending time together.

Daniel make-believes that he and Dad Tiger have super powers.

When Dad Tiger draws a picture of Daniel in the sand, Daniel adds other objects from the beach to make it look like Super Daniel.

The next stop on their day together is the Enchanted Garden where Daniel picks his own apple for snack time. At their final stop -- the clock factory -- Dad Tiger has a surprise planned for Daniel. When the surprise doesn't work, Dad Tiger is disappointed but Daniel reminds him that it doesn't matter what they do as long as they're together. Soon enough, Dad Tiger is able to reveal the surprise -- a new chime time just for Daniel which displays tiger stripes on the walls.


  • "It doesn't matter what we do. I just like to be with you."
