I have worked with PBS Kids for a long time. My kid is almost 12, so we are pretty much at the age of graduating out of their demographic, but here is the thing. Dex still loves watching their shows, and so do I. We also have our best friends’ son who is six, and just the other night he and I watched Peg + Cat together and giggled our booties off. PBS Kids is eternal.
I was lucky enough to become friends with and also work with the executive producer of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Angela Santomero before the show launched. I was there with her and my fellow PBS Kids ambassadors at the PBS Annual Meeting when the show was introduced to all the local stations, with an amazing mix of nostalgia for Mister Rogers and excitement for the future of his messages.
