I'd like to suggest that each screenshot in the episode guides should be clicked for close-up views.

I think Betty said that she and Fred stayed up late at night writing and recording that episode.  I saw it a few years ago at the Paley Center in New York City.

I can now confirm that the program was indeed recorded before aired. So the program was not shown live at all.

I'm not sure if it was aired live or recorded. I'll have to double check that. I think it was recorded before it aired, or at least part of it was, since Mr Rogers voiced the puppets.

Fred wrote the script overnight and they videotaped it the next day. Then it was probably aired the following day. So It's possible to do a production in 2 days time.

Think you're wrong about not doing such an episode now.

He did a similar episode 13 years later.
Episodes / Assasination episode

I’m really surprised how quickly they were able to put that episode together since the assassination of John Kennedy was 2 days prior. But I like the symbolism of blowing up the balloon and letting the air out. One question, how did they put that episode together in 2 days? There would have to be a script, lighting, camera blocking ... and it was live. I doubt they would dare do such an episode nowadays. Fred had a lot of guts.
Episodes / Question about the Beautiful Day collection DVD

I bought the set in June but unbeknownst to me at the time, it was the DVD with the "wrong" episodes before the replacement was issued. I actually saw the DVD at Target but I don't want to have to buy another one. Is there any way I can download the 3 episodes that are only seen on the replacement? (The first B&W episode, Wondering and Asking Questions, and Respecting All Living Creatures)
Records, Tapes, & CDs / Concert with Keri Johnsrud
« Last post by Jazzman67 on January 14, 2019, 03:36:03 AM »

Here's the concert with Keri Johnsrud singing music from Mister Rogers Neighborhood. This is about as close to the original music you'll get in spirit with Johnny Costa's music. The music might be a bit more modern for some people, but the harmonies are pretty much the same as what Fred Rogers wrote in his music. That's how good a composer Fred Rogers. Henever compromised the level of music for the sake of children.

I think many of us will enjoy listenring to some great music:

I edited the dates of the "unknown" weeks based on the schedule info that rogersfan1 recently found.
