NEIGHBORHOOD IN THE NEW DVD
Available on DVD from PBS Distribution
"PBS Distribution announced today it is releasing eight stories from PBS KIDS’ popular DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD series on the new DVD “IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.” Daniel and his family love spending time outside in their neighborhood: going for walks, playing with friends such as Katerina Kittycat and Prince Wednesday, and enjoying the world around them. In the grr-ific stories included on this DVD, Daniel learns about safety at the beach and visits the Enchanted Garden to pick strawberries. And when a windstorm makes a mess of the neighborhood playground, Daniel and his friends and neighbors work together to clean up and make it ready for play again. With warmer weather fast approaching, “IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD” is a great way to get kids excited about getting outside and exploring their neighborhood.
The first original show from The Fred Rogers Company since the iconic MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD, DANIEL TIGER’S NEIGHBORHOOD 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. As they closely follow and share Daniel’s everyday adventures, preschoolers ages 2-4 and their families learn the fun and practical strategies and skills necessary for growing and learning. One of the key ingredients that sets the series apart is its groundbreaking use of catchy, musical strategies 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). Angela C. Santomero of Out of the Blue Enterprises, Kevin Morrison of The Fred Rogers Company, and Vince Commisso of 9 Story Entertainment are the program’s executive producers.
“IT’S A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD” will be available on DVD . The DVD has a run time of approximately 100 minutes and an SRP of $12.99.

“Daniel Explores Nature”
It’s a beautiful day in the Neighborhood! Daniel and his family are spending the day outside exploring, when Daniel spots a beautiful red bird. As they watch the busy bird, they learn about how a bird’s nest is built. But when the nest falls out of the tree, will Daniel and Katerina be able to help?
“Daniel’s Nature Walk”

“Safety at the Beach”
Daniel and Katerina are playing on Jungle Beach with Mom Tiger. The children get a bit carried away by their treasure hunting play and they drift too far away from Mom. They learn that to stay safe near the water, they need to stop and listen!
“Neighborhood Clean Up”
A wind storm has made a mess of the Neighborhood playground and no one can play. When King proclaims that it is Clean Up Day, everyone helps restore the playground by throwing out and recycling the trash. The children learn that by working together, the playground can be ready for play again in no time!
“Fruit Picking Day”
Daniel and his friends are enjoying a Fruit Festival in the Enchanted Garden. Prince Wednesday grows upset because his big brother Prince Tuesday can pick the highest fruit off the tree branches, but he can’t. He wishes he wasn’t so little! Then, when the festival-goers spot a very special magical golden pear on the ground, Prince Wednesday is the only one little enough to reach it.
“A Trip to the Enchanted Garden”
The Tiger family is making strawberry pancakes for breakfast this morning, but when Mom looks more closely in the kitchen, she realizes there are no more strawberries left. They all head to the Enchanted Garden, where Mom Tiger shows Daniel the strawberry patch. Daniel is very curious, and learns that if he looks closely, he may be able to answer his own questions about how strawberries grow and learn something new.
“Daniel Plays Ball”
Daniel, Miss Elaina and Prince Wednesday are at the park with Prince Tuesday. They decide to play a game with a ball. Daniel struggles to catch the ball and gets very frustrated. All of his friends remind him to keep on trying and finally, he succeeds!
“The Royal Sandbox”
Daniel and Prince Wednesday are making sand pies in the sandbox. They decide to top off a sand pie with Prince Tuesday’s royal crown, but they soon see that this wasn’t such a good idea. They learn how to apologize to Prince Tuesday and make the situation better – by helping clean the crown and promising to ask first next time."
