Fred Rogers Productions and Warner Music Group’s Arts Music Division Celebrate Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Milestone 10th Anniversary with New Digital Album
Fred Rogers Productions, the award-winning children’s educational media organization, and Warner Music Group’s Arts Music division are marking the 10th anniversary of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, the beloved Emmy® Award-winning PBS KIDS series, with a new digital album, they have announced. “10 Years of Tiger Tunes!,” the latest Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood music release, is available on all digital platforms now.
“We’re thrilled to continue the 10th anniversary celebration for Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood with our partners at Warner Music Group’s Arts Music division,” said Matt Shiels, VP of Business and Legal Affairs, Fred Rogers Productions. “This newest album will provide children and their families with another great way to extend the fun and learning opportunities of the series beyond the screen while giving them a chance to join in on the ten-year celebration.”
“10 Years of Tiger Tunes!” will feature 13 new, never-before-released songs, including “When You Feel So Mad” and “Your Best is the Best for You.” The album, which shares the hit series’ emphasis on social-emotional skills for preschoolers, will also feature a new version of the song “Sometimes You Want to be Alone,” sung by Daniel Tiger, along with two new potty-training songs. The new tracks are composed by David Brian Kelly, James Chapple, Brian Leigh Pickett, and Graeme Cornies.
Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood follows the daily adventures of 4-year-old Daniel Tiger and his friends Katerina Kittycat, Miss Elaina, O the Owl, and Prince Wednesday. Through each adventure, children are taught valuable lessons and practical skills such as managing sibling rivalry and missing loved ones, tidying up, and coping with accidents, all with the help of strategy songs like, “Clean Up, Pick Up, Put Away” and “As Long as You’re with Family You’re Home.”
When it debuted on PBS KIDS in 2012, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, the first original show from Fred Rogers Productions since Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, brought the children’s television pioneer’s legacy to life for a whole new generation of young viewers. Every episode of the well-loved series showcases two distinct stories starring 4-year-old Daniel Tiger and his friends, who invite viewers to join them as they explore the colorful Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Irresistible musical strategies reinforce the unique theme of each show; preschoolers and parents can sing along and incorporate them into their daily lives. Executive producers are Angela C. Santomero, Chief Creative Officer at 9 Story Media Group; Ellen Doherty, Chief Creative Officer of Fred Rogers Productions; and Vince Commisso, President & CEO, 9 Story Media Group.
Now in its sixth season on PBS KIDS, the series has garnered a host of prestigious awards, including a 2019 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Preschool Children’s Animated Series, 2020 Parents’ Choice Gold Award for Television, 2018 Common Sense Media Seal of Approval, and the Outstanding Achievement in Youth Programming by the Television Critics Association in 2016.
