Series cast summary:


"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 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 Fairchilde and Daniel Stripèd Tiger. Frequent visitors as well as Rogers' own frequent visits to various places in the neighborhood rounded out each show. The program was taped at ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Did You Know?


Marilyn Barnett appeared on the show in episode #1259, which aired as the next to last episode of 1972. She continued to provide exercises for Rogers, mostly in the 1990s (Her last appearance was in Show #1749, which aired August 26, 1999). Maggie Stewart was also on the old shows, playing Mayor Maggie, beginning with Show #1402. Her roles in 1975 were rather short, concluding with the opera "Key to Otherland" in episode #1425, when she played Lorraine Beaver. Stewart did not perform sign-language (her forte) until November 23, 1987, the first show in Alike and Different week. Mayor Maggie appeared at least once in every week of shows released February 1991 to August 2001. In Show #1517 from Day Care and Night Care week, which aired in April 1983, Stewart sang "Then Your Heart is Full of Love", which had been heard on the show since 1968. See more »


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 its own, as if someone were behind the door pulling it closed. See more »

A real person
20 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

One thing that always bothered many people about Mr. Rogers is that he was not believable. Well, the wild thing is that what you see on TV is what you get in real life.

Fred Rogers is the most soft spoken and kindest person you would ever want to meet. What you get is not fake love like in many of today's kid's shows (Barney, to name the most evil one), but true heart from a man who cares.

Mr Rogers is married, has a son, and his son was a bit of a rebel, but you can't deny the man's love for people. I grew up with him. I'm glad I did.

If you don't believe me, just look at the bloopers from his show (Him setting up the tent is the most famous - all he does is laugh).
