Storyline

"Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" was among the most famous, longest-lasting and fondly-remembered children's television shows. Host Fred Rogers (known to millions as simply "Mister Rogers") used his gentle charm and mannerisms to communicate with his audience of children. Topics centered on nearly every inconceivable matter of concern to children, ranging from everyday fears related to going to sleep, getting immunizations and disappointment about not getting one's way to losing a loved one to death and physical handicaps. Rogers used simple songs and, on nearly every show, segments from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe to make his point. A scale-model trolley was often (but not always) used to segue into the Make-Believe segments, said neighborhood being inhabited by puppet characters including King Friday XIII, Lady Elaine Fairchild and Daniel Striped Tiger. Frequent visitors as well as Rogers' own frequent visits to various places in the neighborhood rounded out each show. The program... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Goofs

In the 1979-1981 episodes when Mr. Rogers takes his sweater and closes the closet door, he'd often close it too fast so it came open a ways, but then the closet door begins to close on it's own, as if someone were behind the door pulling it closed. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Rogers: Did you see what I brought in with me? It's a case with a long zipper across here. Can you imagine what might be in here? Can you image what might NOT be in here?

Crazy Credits

Right before the opening credits for the 1979-2001 episodes, a blue screen appeared and a male voiceover announced the sponsors. "The people who gave the money to make Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, are the people of...". In the 1967-1975 episodes, there was no blue screen credits at the beginning or end.

A Beautiful Show In The Neighborhood!
4 June 2002 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

"Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" is without a doubt the best kids show ever. My six year old gets a kick out of watching the show, too. Mister Rogers stars as a host that teaches children life lessons and morals. He also likes to sing. The neighborhood of make believe is my favorite part in this show. "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" is a show for all children to watch. Adults would like it, too. However, avoid "Barney And Friends" or "Teletubbies". They're trash.
