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 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 Stripèd Tiger. Frequent visitors as well as Rogers' own frequent visits to various places in the neighborhood rounded out each show. The program was taped at ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Trivia

In the mid 70s, Rogers was criticized for appealing only to "white, suburban America." To counter this, Rogers hosted a week of shows based in inner city New York with topics given a more urban focus. 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 its own, as if someone were behind the door pulling it closed. See more »

Crazy Credits

Right before the end credits of "Conflict" #1525, a message appears on screen that says, "And they shall beat their swords into plowshares. And their spears into pruning forks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation. Neither shall they learn war anymore". See more »

Alternate Versions

Various theme-week episodes were released to video in the late-1980s in a special format. For instance, the week of "Day Care and Night Care" (#1516-1520) was released to video under the title "When Parents Are Away", and featured the Neighborhood of Make-Believe segments, edited into new segments featuring Mr. Rogers, as well as old segments like him visiting the day care home. In the old version, Fred meets Mr. McFeely at Brockett's bakery and they go to the day care home together. But in the video version, Mr. McFeely visits Mr. Rogers from Brockett's bakery and they leave from the house. See more »

Mr. Rogers A pioneer in children's' television.
30 May 2005 | by Papasmurf4325See all my reviews

Are you kidding I Love Mr Rogers Neighoberhood and i will say it to this very Day. Throughout My life i Watched Mr. Rogers Neighoberhood but i watched it the most when i was a child. when i was a child i would go to my grandma's house and watch Mr. Roger's Neighoberhood along with sesame street. and mr rogers taught me many different lessons, He not only entertained me but he did what most children's television nowadays doesn't's he made me feel good about myself. i'm 19 now but when i was a young kid a was short and would sometimes feel like i was all alone, but watching Mr Rogers taught me that if everybody was the same then the world would be a lot worse off. and another thing that i really liked about Mr Rogers was that for as long as he was on TV and for as many people that watched his show the show was always about the kids. i know that sounds cliché but there never was a Mr Rogers T-Shirt or a Mr Rogers Doll ever. Not Like Barney or Sesame Street (i have nothing about sesame street that show taught me to count to 10 in Spanish before i ever knew it in English).

I hope Mr Rogers is on till the day i die
