Bad show

It’s a bad show. Donkie hodie is super annoying and it’s a stupid rip off of Sesame Street and Daniel Tigers neighborhood. PBS kids you can do better.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (5):

Like Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Donkey Hodie extends the world of a Mister Rogers' Neighborhood character into a full series. Also in the vein of Daniel Tiger, each episode features a song that doubles as a takeaway for the kid viewers at home. But where Daniel Tiger episodes features everyday problems that are very relatable to kids' lives, every Donkey Hodie episode centers around a completely fantastical problem that could only happen in the world of Someplace Else. The lesson of the day is presented in a straightforward way that will help kids apply the same strategy to their own lives. Each episode is also chock-full of visual gags and physical humor that preschoolers (and at times, grown-ups) will find hilarious. Donkey and her friends are very silly and likable puppets that kids will enjoy hanging out with. Kids will enjoy the laugh-out-loud antics of Donkey Hodie, and grown-ups will appreciate that she is teaching kids to persevere and overcome obstacles.
