The popular PBS television series, “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood,’’ has gone live and is coming to Hershey Theatre for two shows Saturday, at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.

Tickets start at $25.

Daniel Tiger was first introduced to generations of youngsters as a shy resident of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood of Make Believe.

Looking for a way to continue Rogers’ legacy after his passing in 2003, Fred Rogers Productions hired Angela Santomero, co-creator of the children's television show “Blue's Clues,’’ who created “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.’’

It debuted on PBS Kids in 2012 and is still running.
