Attention, toots! There is a new “Daniel Tiger” movie available for you and your little ones to enjoy, and it features a brand new character who will also star in several new “Daniel Tiger” episodes.
Her name is Jodi Platypus, and she and her family have moved into Daniel’s Neighborhood Of Make-Believe. Three-year-old Jodi is a bit apprehensive at the beginning, but Daniel and his friends soon show her what community spirit is all about.
