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>

Did You Know?

Trivia

Mr. Rogers always explained to the audience what he was doing when he fed his fish. This was in response to a piece of mail from a blind girl who wanted to know when it happened on each episode. 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 »

Quotes

King Friday XIII: [trolley dings] Don't you worry about that. Don't you mind. There will *always* be mechanical scoffers.

Crazy Credits

After the end credits of episode #1686 (aired in the summer of 1995) a disclaimer appeared that said: 'Dedicated to our friend and colleague, Chef Brockett, with deep affection and gratitude", due to the passing of Don Brockett (Chef Brockett) in May, 1995. 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 »

Most Wonderful Children's Show
4 January 2002 | by mille52See all my reviews

Never underestimate the power of Public Television. Fred Rogers makes children feel comfortable and loved, even if their home life isn't perfect. They don't really show the oldest episodes on PBS, but even back in 1968, Mr. Rogers was having episodes about difficult topics, one episode from the aforementioned year about the assassination of Bobby Kennedy. One might jeer at Mr. Rogers' style of taking his fancy jacket off and changing into a sweater, or changing from his business shoes into tennis shoes, but it gives the feeling comfort in a weary world.
