Brand New PBS Kids Show: Donkey Hodie

Heehaw! Watch the premiere of the brand new PBS KIDS show Donkey Hodie on Tuesday, May 4 at 8:30 & 9 AM.

Donkey Hodie, a new series inspired by characters from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, is coming to PBS KIDS!

In every episode, Donkey Hodie — a sweet, yellow donkey with a bright, magenta mane — along with her pals, Purple Panda, Duck Duck and Bob Dog, empowers preschoolers to dream big and overcome obstacles in their own lives, to work hard and persevere in the face of failure, to be resourceful and discover they are capable of solving problems on their own — and to laugh themselves silly along the way.

Watch weekdays at 9 AM on Mountain Lake PBS and PBS Kids 24/7, or stream it anytime on the PBS Kids video app.

Join in the fun with Donkey Hodie and her pals!

Fun Fact!
Donkey Hodie is the granddaughter of the original Donkey Hodie character from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (we call him “Grampy Hodie” now), who appeared in 59 episodes of the beloved children’s show from 1968-1993.
