This show is remarkable. Mister Rogers understood the inner workings of children's minds and knew exactly how to talk to children about their lives, hopes, and fears without talking down to them. I remember growing up with the show but watching it again with my daughter I was amazed at how well the show spoke directly to her, in both the one-on-one segments with Mister Rogers and the Land of Make Believe. It's also a great change of pace from many modern kids shows - the show takes a very conversational pace, and there are colorful imaginative elements without sensory overload.

I Grow Up Watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, & Would Be Nice If We Had The Next Mister or Mrs. Rogers TV Series, & The 2 Very Important Episodes Mister Rogers' Neigbhorhood From Season 21 Mouthes and Feelings Episode 4 & From Season 26 Brave and Strong Episode 19.
I never had a grandfather growing up Seeing him every morning teaching valuable life lessons made me feel like I had a grandfather that spoke to me everyday My favorite episodes were when he brought out the toy models & he brings out the little version of Trolley! Ah! The mems! I'll never forget him, and I have PBS to thank for helping me be able to see this show at such a young age.
