Celebrating Mister Rogers on his 50th anniversary
Fred Rogers set a new standard for children’s programming when Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood made its network debut in 1968. With the help of Neighborhood friends Mr. McFeely, Lady Aberlin, Officer Clemmons, and Keith the Handyman, cardigan-clad show host Rogers shared frank lessons about life, emotional, and technical learning and inspired generations to be kind to one another. Join us in recognizing 50 years of the landmark program that impacted so many lives with a new celebration of Fred Rogers in Mister Rogers: It’s You I Like.
Michael Keaton, who worked as a stagehand on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, hosts the hour-long tribute, welcoming cast members and other celebrities like Judd Apatow, Yo-Yo Ma, Whoopi Goldberg, John Lithgow and more. Plus, Joanne Rogers shares her perspective on her late husband’s profound work. Mister Rogers: It’s You I Like premieres on KVIE March 6 at 7PM.
