Premiering May 3rd on KMOS TV and PBS KIDS!

Every episode is set in the land of Someplace Else, where Donkey Hodie and her pals empower preschoolers to dream big and overcome obstacles, to work hard and persevere, to be resourceful and discover they can solve problems on their own – and to laugh themselves silly along the way!


DONKEY HODIE will feature new original music along with reimagined versions of Fred’s iconic songs to reinforce and underscore each story’s positive message.

"Do you ever feel that you need to find ‘someplace else’ to play sometimes? When somebody says to you, “You’re making too much noise!” You don’t just have to stop everything. No. You do something else. Or you find ‘someplace else’ to do it." - Fred Rogers
