Donkey Hodie in Massachusetts

Alta Vista Farm, Rutland, Massachusetts

According to Wikipedia:

Inspired by the funny, quirky side of children’s television pioneer Fred Rogers, Donkey Hodie is set in the whimsical land of Someplace Else. The imaginative puppet series follows the adventures of Donkey Hodie, an enthusiastic and charming go-getter who takes on each day with curiosity, resilience, and sincerity, and her pals Purple Panda, Duck Duck, and Bob Dog. The social-emotional series is designed to empower children ages 3–5 to dream big and overcome obstacles in their own lives, to work hard and persevere in the face of failure, to be resourceful and discover they can solve problems on their own—and to laugh themselves silly along the way.
