The top-rated Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood television series from Fred Rogers Productions, airs daily on PBS KIDS and follows the everyday adventures of four-year-old Daniel Tiger. Through imagination, creativity, and song, Daniel and his friends learn key social skills necessary for success in school and life.

The series caters to children ages two to four, and builds on the pioneering PBS series, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Daniel talks directly to viewers, engaging them as if they were his neighbors. Episodes consist of two tales that revolve around a central theme that reinforces early childhood learning. Each story incorporates input from a wide range of specialists in early childhood learning, extensive childhood research, and Fred Rogers’ 40 years of experience.

The animated show has garnered a host of prestigious awards, including 2019 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Preschool Children’s Animated Series, Parent’s Choice Gold Award for Television, 2018 Common Sense Media Seal of Approval and was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming by the Television Critics Association in 2018.
