Their big announcement was for Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, a new show, that's a spin off of Mr Roger's Neighborhood. Daniel is the son of Mr. Rogers tiger friend Danny. He'll be continuing Mr Roger's work of empowering children and fostering their social emotional developement. Each half hour episode will have two segments that focus on a developemental issue. Just like Mr.Roger's show there will be lots of catchy songs with educational lyrics, to help children solve all their most pressing problems.
Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood premeires September 3 (my birthday) after Sesame Street and will continue daily in that time slot.
