Ugga Mugga

On September 3, 2012, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood premiered. This children’s television series follows the adventures of Daniel Tiger and his friends in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, inspired by the classic show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.

Nerdy Fact: The term “ugga mugga” that Daniel Tiger and his family use to express affection is actually a phrase that Fred Rogers used with his own children and grandchildren. It is a playful way of saying “I love you” or “kiss kiss”. The show’s producer, Chris Loggins, said that they wanted to honor Fred Rogers’ legacy by incorporating some of his personal touches into the show.
