The Return of Mr. Rogers

posted by Nell Minow

Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” welcomed children with low-key warmth and delivered its affirmations and lessons with great sweetness.  It ran nationally from 1968-2001 and its reruns are still watched by the children and grandchildren of the original viewers.  PBS has announced an animated spin-off featuring some of the characters from the neighborhood.  It will be called “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” and will premiere next year and it will focus on the next generation in the Neighborhood of Make Believe, including Prince Wednesday, son of King Friday and Queen Sara; Miss Elaina, daughter of Lady Elaine Fairchild; Katerina Kittycat, daughter of Henrietta Pussycat; and O the Owl, nephew of X the Owl.  Trolley and Mr. McFeely will be on hand as well.

Sounds like a very nice neighborhood to visit.
