‘Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood’ Celebrates 10th Anniversary with Music

Fred Rogers Productions and Warner Music Group's Arts Music Division celebrate the Emmy Award-winning PBS KIDS series’ milestone with a new digital album - ‘10 Years of Tiger Tunes!’- now available across all digital platforms.

Fred Rogers Productions and Warner Music Group’s Arts Music division celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Emmy Award-winning PBS KIDS Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood with a new digital album, 10 Years of Tiger Tunes! now available across all digital platforms.

The first original series from Fred Rogers Productions since Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the hugely popular preschool animated series first debuted in 2012. The show features musical strategies reinforcing each episode’s theme and encourages preschoolers and parents to sing along. The album shares the series’ emphasis on social-emotional skills.

10 Years of Tiger Tunes! includes 13 new, never-before-released songs, including “When You Feel So Mad” and “Your Best is the Best for You,” along with 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.

“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.”

Each episode of 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 learn 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.”

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.
