Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Mister Rogers' Neighborhood was a children's television series that was created and hosted by Fred Rogers from 1968 to 2001.

It was characterized by its quiet simplicity and gentleness. Episodes did not have a plot, and consisted of Rogers speaking directly to the viewer about various issues, taking the viewer on tours of factories, demonstrating experiments, crafts, and music, and interacting with his friends. The half-hour episodes were punctuated by a puppet segment chronicling occurrences in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

At the beginning of each episode, Fred Rogers enters his television studio house, singing "Won't You Be My Neighbor?". He hangs his coat in a closet, puts on a cardigan zipper sweater, and removes his dress shoes to put on sneakers. The reverse would happen at the end of the show with Fred Roger's singing, "Good Feeling."

  2. I love Mr. Rogers. My 7 year-old dislikes the show. I tell him that one cannot learn how to be a real man without watching Mr. Rogers.
