PBS Is Airing 'Daniel Tiger' & 'Mister Rogers' Back-to-Back All Week Long

PBS Kids

Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood has been a hit among both kids and parents since it first aired in 2012. With little ones finding a ton of entertainment in the antics Daniel Tiger and his neighbors get up to and parents finding comparisons to the classic Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, it's hard not to love. With the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood recently having passed, PBS has decided to broadcast the shows back-to-back in an amazing double feature that you're definitely going to want to see. 


According to the Fred Rogers Company, the double feature episodes will begin today, Monday, February 26, and end Friday, March 2. Each Day, PBS will air an episode of Daniel Tiger, then follow it up with the corresponding episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood that inspired it. All episodes will be complementary, playing on similar emotions and themes.
