One thing I noticed in the first 3 seasons is so many had boom mic shadows and sometimes the mics itself.

On at least 2 cases you can hear the sound of coughing from one of the crew members.

 Even in a 1970 episode with Jewel Walker you see another camera at the left for several seconds.

Wonder if there's any particular reason for so much of this for 1st 3 years?

It happens.  Even in one of the 1968s, you can see the camera lens cover for the other camera during one of Joey Hollingsworth's routines.  I've seen it on other TV shows as well.  It's television.

Fred Rogers, Betty Aberlin, David Newell and Francios Clemmons did a show at Symphony Hall in Boston. That was on March 22, 1986. This was a year after Fred visited Boston for a visit with the Empire Brass Quintet. I was lucky to get tickets for the show, too.

Neighborhood Video was terminated from Youtube because Family Communications Inc. complained about it.

Episodes / NeighborhoodVideo suspended from YouTube

NeighborhoodVideo was suspended from YouTube today or yesterday, and with his/her channel went every single one of the episodes that aired during the Twitch marathon. Now all that's left are crappy edited versions of episodes (either zoomed in, sound pitched, or repeated certain parts over again).

I don't know if any here knew this but up until today someone was putting up full episodes of MRN.

Finny after who know how many they finally got removed.

I didn't mention it here because I figure sooner or later they'd go.

I'm glad I got to see so many because I began to have trouble watching the Twitch marathon beginning with season 2 so missed most of the first several years.

Of course there are still some floating around though mostly post 79's and have for sometime so it's beyond me why those others still exist.

Episodes / Re: Something I've wondered about 1456-1460

Bumping up this topic; the marathon last spring seemed to clarify a few things:
-1455 definitely has a "finale" feel to it, with the Make Believe characters talking about all the important events they'd like to remember (the Froggs moving is mentioned as a starting point) and Lady Aberlin commenting "we'll all look different". King Friday's "pledge to the flag". Afterward, Mr. Rogers talks about remembering all the things he's talked about with his television neighbor, and talking about what the viewer may be when they grow up.
-1456-1460 appear to be taped at a different time; I get the impression they were made as a better transition to the older episodes than 1455, with explanations as to why the characters changed or why they were mentioning the Neighborhood of Make-Believe in the "real" neighborhood. I think there are minor crew differences here and there, but the whole week just has a different "feel" to it than season 8 (a bit quieter and spare in comparison). 

Could be.  Although, Margaret Hamilton was in both weeks, although her only appearance in 1456-1460 was in 1459.  Since you seem to have an eye for detail, do you think perhaps 1459 could have been shot at the same time as 1451-1455, even if the rest of the week was not?

What exactly do you mean by "quieter and spare".

I wonder if the first post-hiatus shows (the Hugh Martin era) were intended as just a limited supplement to the existing shows before the decision was made to continue indefinitely and (eventually) retire the old series episodes.

I did hear somewhere that the post-79s were originally intended as a limited supplement.  I wonder when they decided that they'd continue indefinitely.  I'm guessing maybe around the time that they stopped the "Mr. Rogers talks to parents" episodes.

Episodes / Essential episodes of the series
« Last post by bjdwsm on November 11, 2017, 03:58:45 PM »
Which episodes of the series would you categorize as the most "essential viewing"? They can be individual episodes or full weeks. I'm thinking in terms of different sets of criteria:
-important moments/plot developments in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe
-guest visitors
-particularly funny, beautiful or otherwise emotionally resonant moments
