"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 Fairchilde and Daniel Striped Tiger. Frequent visitors as well as Rogers' own frequent visits to various places in the neighborhood rounded out each show. The ... Written by

Marilyn Barnett first 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 26 August 1999). Maggie Stewart was also on the old shows, playing Mayor Maggie, beginning with Show #1402. Her roles in the 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 23 November 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 it's own, as if someone were behind the door pulling it closed. See more »
The episode number in the older episodes did not appear until immediately following the end credits. A screen would appear with the logo on the top, the trolley off to the left, and the episode number hung on a sign hanging on the show logo. This was used for episodes 1001-1460. And then, beginning with the 1500s episodes, the number was now shown on screen in the opening. See more »
I used to watch this show when I was a little girl. When I think about it, I remember it pretty well, though. However, I remember the opening sequence and theme song pretty well. If you ask me, it was a good show which is very educational. In addition to that, everyone was ideally cast. The puppet shows and songs were good, too. My favorite songs were the opening and closing themes. I hope it stays on PBS for years to come. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever, even though I don't think I've seen every episode. Now, in conclusion, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
