There’s a Mr. Rogers Movie in the Works!! [VIDEO]
Won’t you be my neighbor!!! I love watching Mr. Rogers growing up. Heck, just listening to the intro of the show brings back all the memories from curling up on the couch watching the show and never wanting it to end!
If you miss the neighborhood, good news! There’s a movie in the works called “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood“, and it’s all about Fred Rogers and how he became the creator of, quote, “what is arguably the most influential American children’s television show of all time.”
“Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” debuted in 1968 and ran until 2001. The show won four Emmys, and Rogers got a lifetime achievement Emmy in 1997. Mr. Rogers sadly died in 2003, but his show will forever live on.
Jen Jacobs and I were talking about Mr. Rogers earlier today and how T.V. programs like this need to be on the air versus what is on T.V. for the younger generation. I watch some of the shows my niece watches, and I think it’s complete garbage. The kids may or may not be picking up on the messages but from what I get from popular kid shows today is that you need to be popular, skinny, pretty, have a boyfriend, . . . you get the picture. Thank you Mr. Rogers for making such an incredible, respectable television program!
