Fred McFeely Rogers (1928-2003) was one of the most beloved television personalities of all time.  He entertained generations of children in his lifetime and his legacy continues to this day.

 

Born near Pittsburgh in 1928, Fred Rogers always had a gift for music.  He learned to play the piano at just five years old, earned a degree in music composition, and wrote over 200 original songs in his lifetime.  In the 1950s, Rogers began working in television and became a skilled puppeteer.  He later starred in a 1963 Toronto TV show called Misterogers.  Rogers bought the rights to the program in 1966 and moved back to Pittsburgh.

 

 A new version, called Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, aired in the United States on February 19, 1968.  With it, Rogers started a new trend in children’s TV.  He spoke directly to the audience in a “conversation” throughout the episode.  Rogers also taught lessons about growing up and tackling life’s obstacles, big and small.  More importantly, he promoted kindness, respect, honesty, and being true to yourself.  The show ran for 33 years.

 

Audiences came to love “Mister Rogers,” and his show became a timeless classic.  Rogers influenced countless children with values they could carry all the way to adulthood.  He may be gone, but Fred Rogers and his famous appeal, “Oh won’t you be my neighbor?” will live on in American memory forevermore.
