Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is a new, beautifully-textured animated series from PBS KIDS for preschoolers aged 2-4, based on the legacy of Fred Rogers. Its cast are the children of his original and much-loved Neighborhood of Make-Believe characters. A young Daniel Tiger is joined by his friends O the Owl, Katerina Kittycat, Prince Wednesday, and Miss Elaina. Together, through imagination, creativity and music they learn the key social skills necessary for school and for life.
Building on the landmark PBS series Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is a new series for a new generation of children. Launching in fall 2012 on PBS KIDS, the series tells engaging stories about the life of a preschooler and is accompanied by cross-platform games and activities for the very youngest children, together with online resources for parents and teachers. Daniel was developed by The Fred Rogers Company, and brings together a group of today’s leading creators of children’s media and educational technology. The series tells its engaging stories using musical strategies grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark curriculum: its songs give parents and children a concrete way to practice important school-readiness skills together.
