TV Shows - Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Mister Rogers' Neighborhood or Mister Rogers is an American children's television series that was created and hosted by Fred Rogers. Mister Rogers' Neighborhood was produced by Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA public broadcaster WQED and Rogers' non-profit production company Family Communications, Inc. (named Small World Enterprises prior to 1971). It is the longest running series on PBS. The first broadcast of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood was on the National Educational Television network on February 19, 1968. When NET ceased broadcasting in 1970, the series moved to PBS. The show would be renamed to its more-familiar three-word title, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, in 1971. The first series of episodes were produced and aired from 1968 to 1976. The second series of episodes were produced and aired from 1979 to 2001 (modern series). Mister Rogers' Neighborhood 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. One of Rogers' sweaters now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution, a testament to the cultural influence of his simple daily ritual.

1 Thank God Mr. Rodgers never sold out like seasme street has and watered it down. I remembered the comments in the original website where it said that it used to have a primetime version but it's a little different, I want to know is it true or not? -- Submitted By: (SSM) on January 10, 2011, 9:20 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 One of my favorite shows to watch whilst growing up. Were any of the episodes released on dvd? -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on October 15, 2010, 6:26 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Never boned then, if it was still going today, it never would. Fred Rogers never talked down to kids, treated kids like anyone else, and took his time. Taught everything from Kindness and manners, to Tieing shoes and how crayons and milk are made. The neighborhood of make believe was also nice. (Why all the hate with Lady Elaine? I loved her as a kid). -- Submitted By: (Johnny_T._Bird) on July 25, 2009, 9:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

6 Gotta admit, I liked watching him when I was in preschool and I'll always be grateful that I learned to snap my fingers just by watching him do the closing song. Unfortunately, when I got older, he seemed a bit boring to me . Hence, if I happened to surf on the show, I'd only stay on his segments if he was taking a field trip to an interesting factory or exotic location (like Moscow during the deathrows of the Soviet Union ). Things would pick up when they'd switch over to the Neighborhood of Make Believe as long as they didn't sing too long and my favorite character Lady Elaine would stir up...trouble. Yeah, I know she looked like a recycled witch puppet in a sweater but she was fun and the only character on the whole show who wasn't a total goody-goody! Ironically, Reverand Rogers' show looks positively Shakespearean compared to so many other kids' shows they have on today- and he never talked down or tried to win over us kids by grossing us out so he has my retrospective respect! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 8, 2009, 5:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 The man never sold out. I think most people would agree he never boned the fish either. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on April 2, 2009, 1:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I thought this show was really neat. and Fred Rogers did a good job explaining things to people of all ages. and I thought it was cool when he went on field trips to places like the post office. I don't think he ever BTF! -- Submitted By: (Riley2009) on April 2, 2009, 12:51 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
