Users will see an animated picture of Rogers above the search bar, and clicking it starts a two-minute updated version of the show’s famous introduction. Rogers waltzes through town in his trademark cardigan and tie, bringing together a diverse mix of kids as he sings “What You Be My Neighbor?” once more.
“There’s nobody else in the whole world who’s exactly like you, and people can like you exactly as you are,” Rogers says at the end of the Doodle, in a very 2018-friendly message.
