I am a huge fan of PBS. I love that I don't have to subscribe to cable to get quality kid's programming every day. This fall, NET is adding a new show, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood to the schedule. My four year old son already loves the fun animal characters and looks forward to watching this new show.
Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Show Information
· Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, is a new, vibrant animated series designed for preschoolers ages 2-4 airing on NET-1 and NET-HD starting Monday, September 3rd.
· Series Description: Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is based on the legacy of Fred Rogers (Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood) and features the children of his original, beloved Neighborhood of Make-Believe characters. In Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, 4-year-old Daniel Tiger talks directly to young audience members, inviting them into his colorful world. He 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 life!
· Show Legacy: Fred Rogers influenced generations of children for more than 40 years with his high standards for early childhood education and creativity, as well as his love and respect for the children who grew up watching him. Parents of today who remember watching Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood may find many elements of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood familiar. The theme song contains the classic “It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” refrain, and Daniel puts on his sweater and shoes just like Mr. Rogers did.
