Fred Rogers: America's Favorite Neighbor

Fred Rogers: America's Favorite Neighbor



The loss of perennial children's television favorite Fred Rogers left a hole in the hearts of many Americans that could never be filled by the likes of the Teletubbies or Barney the Dinosaur. Rogers was a gentle, soft-spoken "neighbor" whose constant sense of wonder and innocence shone a positive ray of bright light on a medium that seems to grow less kid-friendly with each passing hour. His timeless lessons of learning and sharing are looked back upon by actor (and former Mister Rogers' Neighborhood crew member) Michael Keaton though a collection of vintage clips and behind-the-scenes footage from Rogers' 30-year stint as America's premiere children's television broadcaster.

Grab the tissues one and all. You are taken on a trolley ride through childhood memories that could only be made by this angel of a man. We are blessed to have had this angel for so long. He taught us so much about who we are and who we could become. Thank you, Mister Fred Rogers

Superb documentary, with some emotional and funny moments, on the life of Mr. Rogers. Very comprehensive; *outstanding* special features. For anyone who's a fan of Mr. Rogers and the Neighborhood, this is a must-see program!
