| One of the best men who ever lived
Mr. Rogers did what few artists have done in the history of mankind - strengthened and supported his audience so profoundly and so generously that he became a transformative force in their lives. I feel fortunate to have learned from him. In all too many homes, Mr. Rogers was and is the only voice of understanding, gentleness and positive reinforcement. Imagine how different our world would be if more young people could be exposed to his philosophy of acceptance and love.

There are so many children who never hear their parents say the words "I love you" - not once, not ever. And then they hear Mr. Rogers sing of all the ways people say "I love you," like "the cooking way" and "the eating way," and it's a comfort and reassurance beyond words. No other public figure provides this kind of life-changing insight to the people most in need.

On behalf of everyone you helped, of all the souls you touched in a badly damaged world, Mr. Rogers - we thank you, and we love you.

Quotes

Mr. Rogers: Let's think of something to do while we're waiting / While we're waiting / For something new to do / Let's think up a song while we're waiting / That's liberating / And will be true to you / Let's think of something to do while we're waiting / While...


Goofs

In the 1979-1981 episodes when Mr. Rogers takes off his sweater and closes the closet door, he'd often close it too fast so it came open a ways, but then the closet door begins to close on its own, as if someone were behind the door pulling it closed.


Crazy Credits

Right before the end credits of "Conflict" #1525, a message appears on screen that says, "And they shall beat their swords into plowshares. And their spears into pruning forks; Nation shall not lift up sword against nation. Neither shall they learn war anymore".


Alternate Versions

Various theme-week episodes were released to video in the late-1980s in a special format. For instance, the week of "Day Care and Night Care" (#1516-1520) was released to video under the title "When Parents Are Away", and featured the Neighborhood of Make-Believe segments, edited into new segments featuring Mr. Rogers, as well as old segments like him visiting the day care home. In the old version, Fred meets Mr. McFeely at Brockett's bakery and they go to the day care home together. But in the video version, Mr. McFeely visits Mr. Rogers from Brockett's bakery and they leave from the house.
