Fred Rogers died in 2003, but Mister Rogers' Neighborhood will live on. PBS announced a new animated spin-off yesterday: Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood will follow the four-year-old son of the series' original Tiger. The show will take place back in the familiar Neighborhood of Make Believe, and four-year-old Daniel Tiger will be joined by other preschool-aged children of the original series' now-grown characters, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The original series aired on PBS from 1968 to 2001, and repeats ran until 2008, notes TV Guide. The spin-off will debut in fall 2012, and will be accompanied by a website with interactive games and resources for parents and teachers.
