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

Fred Rogers never appeared in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe as himself, although in the first few seasons of the show he used to interact with the characters. In episode 1 he called Edgar Cooke (Whom Fred Rogers also voiced) on the telephone can (We didn't hear Edgar's voice on the other line though) and he'd look through a telescope to the Neighborhood of Make Believe. At the end of the NoMB segment in episode 1, King Friday says, "I wonder what Mr. Rogers would say about this," and sends a note to him on the trolley. Betty Aberlin played her Neighborhood of Make-Believe character, Lady Aberlin, in the real neighborhood in 1013 from 1969 when she gives Mr. Rogers an invitation to the wedding of King Friday and Queen Sara. Joe Negri plays his Neighborhood of Make- Believe character, Handyman Negri, in the real neighborhood during the week of episodes 1001-1005 in 1969. Both performers had always played themselves in the real neighborhood from then on. See more »

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. Instead, the sponsors were announced over the end credits. See more »

Good show which is very educational
31 July 2006 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

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.
