Mr. Rogers’s Google Doodle is the neighborly animation we need right now

Fred Rogers Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Google Doodles is celebrating Pittsburgh's very own Mister Rogers. In honor of the major milestone, Friday's Google Doodle was a sweet stop-motion video using Rogers' vocals on the classic song "What You Be My Neighbor?" which also served as the opening theme for his iconic children's show. However, children continue to discover the show through reruns, which are still broadcast on some PBS stations.

Newell added that even after all these years he has never once regreted playing Mr. McFeely, saying, "I have loved every day of it".

The Google project, directed by Melissa Crowton and Olivia Huynh, worked in collaboration with Fred Rogers Productions, the Fred Rogers Center and the Sen.

"Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" ended production in 2000, three years before Rogers passed away. In a claymation presentation reminiscent of another 1960s children's show, Davey and Goliath, Mister Rogers greets friends along the way with smiles and invitations to educational adventures. "There's nobody else in the whole world who's exactly like you". First the beloved children's show host made us sob uncontrollably with the documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor, which delved into the man behind the curtain.

Rogers' career in children's TV programming began in 1954 as a puppeteer on The Children's Corner, a live afternoon TV show that laid the groundwork for numerous characters he would use in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, including Daniel Tiger and X the Owl.
