Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Readies for Season Seven

Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood kicks off its seventh season

on August 12, 2024 on PBS KIDS. Season 7 of the animated series from Fred Rogers

Productions will feature 14 episodes with exciting new interstitials plus one half-hour

special. Since its launch in 2012, the relatable Daniel Tiger has become beloved by children

and parents alike as he takes viewers along on his everyday adventures in the

Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Now, viewers will experience the perspective of other fan-

favorite characters in an exciting new format change for the series.

For the first time, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood will feature stories from the points-of-

view of familiar friends. Each half-hour will include one story from Daniel’s perspective and

another from the perspective of characters including Katerina Kittycat, Miss Elaina, O the

Owl, Prince Wednesday, Jodi Platypus, Max, and Chrissie. The show’s iconic “Imagination

Moments” will also be presented from the unique perspectives of other characters to

illustrate each friend’s own imaginative style.

“We’re excited that the new format will give children more opportunities to see themselves

and their experiences represented as they get to know Daniel’s friends in a different way,”

said Ellen Doherty, chief creative officer, Fred Rogers Productions. “Celebrating friends and

neighbors is one of many ways that Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood continues the legacy of

Fred Rogers.”

“We’re thrilled to continue bringing stories from Daniel and all his friends to kids across the

country on PBS KIDS,” said Sara DeWitt, senior vice president and general manager, PBS

KIDS. “Families love to share with us how much these characters and lessons resonate, and

we can’t wait for everyone to see more.”

In addition to new songs and stories—including a helpful potty strategy tune—the seventh

season will feature an episode where Daniel and friends wonder what’s new about Trolley.

Young viewers and their families will also get to visit a new location and meet Jodi’s dad,

Mr. Plat, who lives outside the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.
