Everyone has something that makes him or her unique and special. In DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, Daniel’s friends have so many talents that sometimes it’s hard to stand out. When a class performance leaves O the Owl feeling discouraged, and a fun walk through the neighborhood leaves Daniel wondering if he’s as special as his friends, it’s a good time to remember that great friends appreciate each other just the way they are!
“YOU ARE SPECIAL, DANIEL TIGER!” will be available on DVD September 13, 2016. The DVD has a run time of approximately 110 minutes and an SRP of $12.99. The stories included within this DVD are below. Episodes of DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD are also available for digital download.
“You Are Special”
The children are putting on a show at school today, each doing something that presents a unique ability. At first, O the Owl wants to be just like the others, but with a little encouragement, he finds his own special ability, too.
“Daniel Is Special”
Daniel and Dad take a fall walk through the Neighborhood, admiring the colors of the leaves. On their way, they meet Miss Elaina and O the Owl. Both Miss Elaina and O the Owl do special things that make Daniel wonder if he is as special as they are. Dad reminds Daniel of the things that make him special, such as his whimsical imagination!
“No Red Sweater for Daniel”
Daniel is getting ready for the day and can’t find his red sweater anywhere! Mom tells Daniel that it’s in the wash, so he’ll just have to find something else to wear. Daniel puts on a blue sweater and is concerned because he looks different. How does he know he’s still HIM? Mom assures him that no matter what you wear or how different you appear, you’re always still YOU on the inside.
“Teacher Harriet’s New Hairdo”
Daniel goes to school and finds that something is different: his teacher! But wait…it IS Teacher Harriet, only with a different hairstyle. Daniel is hesitant at first but soon comes to understand that even though we can all change how we look on the outside, we’re still the same on the inside.
“Same and Different”
While Daniel is playing dress up with his friends at school, he feels different when he realizes that not everyone has a tail like him. He learns that everyone has differences, but that these characteristics are the things that make us unique.
“Tutu All the Time”
Katerina has on her favorite sparkly tutu at school today! She likes to wear it all the time, even when she’s painting and playing “grizzly bear” with her friends. But she soon learns how important it is to choose the proper clothes for the things you want to do.
“Daniel Thinks of Others”
Daniel is making different kinds of art at school today. While creating a picture for his family, he ends up using ALL of the glitter. Oh no! What if someone else needs glitter? Teacher Harriet tells Daniel that it will be okay, but to always keep in mind that whatever you do, you should think about what other people might need, too.
“Daniel Thinks of What Margaret Needs”
Daniel and Miss Elaina want to play their musical instruments and march all around the house, but Margaret needs to sleep and it would be way too noisy! Mom and Dad remind Daniel that he should be aware of how the things he does might affect the needs of others.
The first TV series inspired by the iconic, award-winning MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD from The Fred Rogers Company stars 4-year-old Daniel Tiger, son of the original program’s Daniel Striped Tiger, who invites young viewers into his world, giving them a kid’s-eye view of his life. One of the key ingredients that makes the series a standout is its groundbreaking use of catchy musical strategies, grounded in Fred Rogers’ landmark social-emotional curriculum, that reinforce each theme and that preschoolers and parents both sing – and use – together in their daily lives. DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD, which debuted in September 2012, airs daily on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
