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 is named after WQED's General manager, Dorothy Daniel, who gave Fred Rogers a tiger puppet the evening before The Children's Corner (1955) first went on the air. The puppet immediately became part of the show. See more »

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: The next time you hear from me, I will be wearing Mr. McFeely's t-shirt.

Crazy Credits

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 »

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.
