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>

Trivia

The object on the left side of the castle with pipes leading out of it seen in early 1980s episodes, though unfamiliar with younger viewers, is the castle fountain, first assembled in #1139 from 1971 and used frequently in the mid-1970s episodes. The fountain was dismantled and removed in 1981. See more »

Goofs

In "Discipline, #1494" some of the black back drop inside X's tree gets caught on X's wing as he comes out, so the piece of back drop hangs out the knot hole for some time. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Rogers: I was just thinking, I wonder if King Friday and Lady Elaine sometimes just get jealous of each other or something. If they'd just talk about how they feel instead of acting silly, everyone would be alot happier. Well you and I know that WE don't have to act like they do. No, we don't! And that can give us a very good feeling.

Excellent show for kids
16 July 2000 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I highly resent the way many people talk about this show. Many of the things Fred Rogers does may seem ridiculous to us adults, but this is the best show ever to teach little children valuable skills for their futures. Fred Rogers is a wonderful man and really cares about kids. He hosts a show that is very educational for kids all the way up to age 7 or 8 and teaches good manners, what goes on in life, and introduces young children to the world they live in.

Personally, I grew up watching this show. I watched it until the age of seven. I learned a lot from Mr. Rogers and have great respect for the man. His show is very good at teaching little kids important things, and explaining things to them. It is also good for parents to watch with their kids. Many kids these days lack the skills which Mr. Rogers teaches. It is also very entertaining for kids. I highly recommend every little kid to watch this show. Kids and even some adults can learn skills which every body needs. Judging this show from watching it as a kid: On a scale of 1-10, I give this show a 10 in the way of kid shows, and a letter grade of A+! It may seem dull for adults, but it is very educational, and valuable for the future of kids who will one day be grown ups like us.
