Pant-less Daniel Tiger Dad
Posted: March 20, 2013 by christopher comstock
Program: Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood
I am watching Daniel Tiger with my son here, 'Daniel and his parents have a sleepover at Prince Wednesday's castle; O the Owl is hesitant to camp in the yard' episode. One question- why is Daniel Tigers dad pant-less inside the tent with Daniel and Owl? It wouldn't bother me so much if Daniel, Owl, and Daniel's mom didn't have pants on also, but they do. Thank you for your time and everything you do!
CPT12 Response:
We received your note about the Daniel Tiger episode on backyard camping and his father’s “pantsless-ness.” I haven’t seen the episode in question but can only hazard a guess as to why only one character isn’t wearing pants. I am quite certain that the producers meant no harm. In our research on the topic we found it interesting to note that, in cartoons on television, there is a long history of male characters being clothes-less while female characters are fully clothed. Here’s a link to an online article on the topic: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PantslessMalesFullyDressedFemales
 
We have let the program producers know about your discomfort and perhaps in the future, we can see more sensitivity to this issue.
 
Thank you for writing to CPT12 and for supporting our work.
 
Best,
Pam Osborne
