Daniel Tiger Gets His Own Show

This fall, the four-year-old son of Daniel Striped Tiger will be getting his own animated series on PBS Kids. For those too young to remember, Daniel Striped Tiger is one of the mainstays of the iconic, award-winning show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. The show will be titled Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, and will follow the young tiger cub as he goes on adventures and entertains children while teaching them a thing or two.

“When we presented the animatic pilot to PBS, they actually greenlit the show based on that presentation, which is not something they usually do,” recalls co-founder and CCO of Out of Blue Enterprises Angela C. Santomero.

The show creators chose to go with animation instead of live action in order to help bridge the gap between Mister Rogers’ show and the new preschool series:

We knew from the very start that there’s no replacement for Fred,” says The Fred Rogers Company COO Kevin Morrison. “We played around with various ideas, mixing puppets and live-action, and the best one was to take one of Fred’s characters and animate the show. That really resonated with us, and we were fortunate to have Angela, because she really shares Fred Rogers’ sensibility. She had actually met Fred in the past, and has the vision to channel those ideas for a 21st century show.”
