Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Description

The genial, soft-spoken man made every day `special' and every kid welcome in this long-running series. Once described as `a singing psychiatrist for children,' Rogers used puppetry, songs and storytelling to teach youngsters about family values and how to deal with life's ups and downs. Rogers, an ordained Presbyterian minister, was a beloved mainstay of PBS's daytime lineup and received a long-overdue Emmy in 1999 for Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series.
