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 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 Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Daniel Stripèd Tiger was the first resident of the Neighborhood of Make Believe. He was created in 1954 for The Children's Corner (1955). Daniel Stripèd Tiger and King Friday XIII were the first-ever puppets created and used by Fred Rogers while he appeared on that show. The show also featured Rogers' other puppet creations, X the Owl, Henrietta Pussycat, and Lady Elaine Fairchilde. They were also on MisteRogers (1961), which was the precursor to this show.

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: [singing] What if I were very, very sad / And all I did was smile? I wonder after a while / What might become of my sadness? What if I were very, very angry / And all I did was sit / And never think of it? What might become of my anger? Where would they go / And what would they do / If I couldn't let them out? / Maybe I'd fall / Maybe get sick / Or doubt / But what if I could know the truth / And say just how I feel? I think I'd learn a lot that's real / About freedom / I'm learning to sing a ...

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.
