Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (sometimes shortened to Mister Rogers) is an American half-hour children's television series that was created and hosted by namesake Fred Rogers. The series ran on PBS from 1968 to 2001 (with a hiatus between 1976 and 1979) and is geared primarily to 2-to-5-year-olds, but is appropriate for all ages.

Plot

With his caring and trusting ways, Mister Rogers creates a calm, safe place for children to learn about themselves, about others, and about the world around them. Mister Rogers brings them a one-to-one affirmation of their self-worth.

Why It Rocks

  1. Fred Rogers was a very kind and gentle man (both on his show and in real-life where he was never a Broken Pedestal) who taught children (and sometimes adults) important life lessons without being too preachy, such as believing in yourself, respecting your neighbors, using your imagination and solving problems in a constructive manner.
    • In fact, Mister Rogers is so well-loved throughout the internet that even the notorious 4Chan imageboard holds deep respect for him and will ban anyone who insults him, though it should be long enough to teach them lesson, not indefinite.
  2. Mister Rogers uses fourth-wall breaking and fake interactivity to educate the viewer, and it works in a way where it's not annoying.
  3. The Neighborhood of Make-Believe is a really nice and sweet segment.
  4. The theme song is catchy and unforgettable. You can listen to the song here.
  5. Heartwarming and sweet-sounding music.
  6. It is very emotional without being treacly.
  7. Its follow-up series, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, holds up the legacy pretty well.
  8. It had a crossover with Sesame Street with Fred Rogers as the guest and again with Big Bird as the guest on his show, on May 22nd, 1981. (1575)
    • It had another crossover with Arthur where Fred Rogers voiced himself and talked to Arthur about being a kid and real friendship.
  9. Plenty of heartwarming songs, like the timeless classic, "It's You I Like".
  10. Mister Rogers tackled many serious issues, such as racism, violence, divorce, child abuse, disability, the death of a loved-one and even assassination.
  11. The characters in the The Neighborhood of Make-Believe segments are likable, relatable and unforgettable.
  12. Because the show often filmed remote locations in Pittsburgh (Rogers' hometown), it showed off the city as vibrant and beautiful, not at all the smoggy eyesore that it had been the previous century.
