An endearing tribute to a great man
29 November 2004 | by MST3kMasterSee all my reviews

Michael Keaton hosts this tribute to Fred Rogers. Michael Keaton, then Michael Douglas, worked the Picture, Picture machine for the 'Mister Rogers' Neighborhood' show.

The program gives a brief biography of Mr. Rogers, following him from childhood to his college choices. It also follows him through his beginnings in television. From the 'Children's Corner' to the 'Mister Rogers' Neighborhood'. During the different shows, the program interviews co-workers, such as his first co-host and his later music director, John Costa. Also, interviews with leading child psychologists to expound on how Mr. Rogers' style is good for children.

This is a good program for any fan of Fred Rogers' work. I was so touched by his lifetime of work that he put into his shows. I was also touched by the segment about Jeffery, a boy who was paralyzed and came on Mr. Rogers' show to explain that he was different like everyone else.

Near the end, the dedication shown by Fred Rogers toward children is easily seen. He has won many awards, such as the Lifetime Achievement Emmy. He has touched many children's lives with just Mr. Rogers being Mr. Rogers.
