Daniel Tiger is an imaginative young tiger cub who is the main protagonist and the host of the show titled after himself. Daniel is the son of the tiger, named Daniel Striped Tiger, who appeared in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood of Make Believe. In DTN he is called Dad Tiger instead.

Daniel befriends Jodi Platypus in The Daniel Tiger Movie: Won't You Be Our Neighbor? and subsequent episodes.


Daniel Tiger is a young tiger cub with darker brown stripes on his body and has a big imagination. He wears a red sweater just like Fred Rogers, red and white sneakers, and a wristwatch just like his father, except instead of silver, it's bronze on the outside and gold on the inside.


Daniel is four years old and is considered a shy child who will at times hide behind his mother when meeting new people.


Daniel Tiger and his family live in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. His father is Daniel Striped Tiger from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. His mother is Mom Tiger (who may or may not be Collette Tiger, predicted to marry him). He gained a baby sister named Margaret Tiger in later episodes.

His extended family includes Grandpere Tiger, who is his paternal grandfather and lives somewhere in the neighborhood. He sails on a boat as well.

Granny Tiger is his paternal grandmother and Grandpere Tiger's wife. She has not yet appeared in the show.

His maternal grandparents are not shown on the show for unknown reasons.


  • Daniel is based off of Fred Rogers. He also wears the same red sweater that Fred Rogers wore.
  • Daniel is allergic to peaches.
  • In the ending sequence (from Seasons 2 to present), Jake Beale’s singing can still be noticed because the Season 1 episode ending sequence was recirculated.

Alternate Apparel

Depending on the theme of each episode, Daniel often wears an outfit based on that theme. This is a collection of some of the different outfits he has worn:



  • "Grrr-riffic!"
  • "Hey, do you want to make believe with me?"
  • "Hi neighbor!"
  • "Ugga Mugga!"
