Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood is an animated children's educational program based on the Neighborhood of Make-Believe from the long-running Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. The series centers around Daniel Tiger, the son of Daniel Striped Tiger, and the other children of the characters, such as Katerina Kittycat (daughter of Henrietta Pussycat), Miss Elaina (daughter of Lady Elaine Fairchild and Music Man Stan), O the Owl (nephew of X the Owl), and Prince Wednesday (King Friday and Queen Sara Saturday's youngest son and Prince Tuesday's little brother).

Each episode contains two 11-minute segments, which are linked by a common socio-emotional theme, such as disappointment, sadness and anger, or being thankful and appreciative. The theme includes a musical motif phrase which is referred to as a "strategy song" to reinforce the theme and help the children remember the life lessons.

The creation of the show was bought up in 2006, three years after Fred Rogers died and right when production on Blue's Clues had ended.
