Freqeuently Asked Questions

How did you get copies of all of these episodes of Mister Rogers Neighborhood?
The episodes from 1979 and beyond were recorded from my local PBS station in the few years before the broadcasts of the program were reduced/eliminated. At the time, I had no idea that the broadcasts were going to be cut back so drastically so it was just dumb luck that I decided to start recording them.

Do you work for Fred Rogers Productions (Family Communications Inc)?
No, I am not an employee of the Fred Rogers Company; however, they have graciously provided me with content and information as we have formed a partnership in documenting "all things Mister Rogers."

Is there anywhere on this website where I can watch episodes of MRN?
Unfortunately not. This website is strictly informational. Although video footage would certainly enhance this archival tribute, through correspondence with FRP/FCI, I have agreed to refrain from sharing actual video footage on this site or the blog as they have otherwise given their full blessing for this site. There are, however, a select number of episodes which can be viewed on the PBS Kids website as well as many episodes which you can purchase on DVD or digital download through and iTunes.

Why do you put so much time into a website about Mister Rogers?
Try to find someone who's never heard of Mister Rogers. It's not so easy. For a man who impacted the lives of countless people through his work, before the establishment of this site there was a huge void on the internet when it came to anything that paid adequate tribute to Fred Rogers. Although this site is a continuous work in progress, I hope that it continues to grow and helps to fill a small portion of that void.

Why does the Fred Rogers Company (FCI) not share footage of the MRN more freely?
There is much more to this than FRC simply hoarding this footage. That is not the case at all. There are legal and financial issues associated with sharing this footage and I fully support the position of FRC.

Do you collect all of this stuff?
For the most part, yes. There are a few items on this site that I do not physically own -- but I'm always on the lookout!
