Mister Rogers gets animated with Google Doodle honor

Fred Rogers Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

The legacy of Fred Rogers continues to shine, thanks to a new Google Doodle that has been dedicated to the beloved educational entertainment icon.

Rogers profoundly understood the power of his medium, saying, "Through television we have a great chance to show and tell our children that they really matter".

Our friends at The Odd, Mysterious and Fascinating History of Pittsburgh on Facebook posted the first episode earlier this year on the 50th anniversary.

Like the opening of hundreds of Mister Rogers episodes, the Doodle begins with a group of young children gathered around the TV, watching as a trolley transverses a model of Mister Rogers' neighborhood.


Newell added that even after all these years he has never once regreted playing Mr. McFeely, saying, "I have loved every day of it". Through the video, Mister Rogers sings his favorite tune, "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" before ending with a familiar message.

The Google project, directed by Melissa Crowton and Olivia Huynh, worked in collaboration with Fred Rogers Productions, the Fred Rogers Center and the Sen. "There's nobody in the whole world who's exactly like you and people can like you exactly as you are".

It's a lovely day in the neighborhood to celebrate Fred Rogers, one of the most beloved figures in television history. Rogers died in 2003 at age 74, but the iconic children's entertainer is still with us: all 856 episodes of his classic show are available to watch for free on livestreaming site Twitch.
