Bernie Jesiolowski, who appeared on a handful of episodes in the first season, has uploaded some clips of his segments on YouTube. Really neat stuff here!

I'm new to the Neighborhood.  One of these clips had Mrs. Frogg in it, which was the first time I had seen any of the Froggs - I had only read about them on the Archive.  Mrs. Frogg sounds a bit like Mr. McFeely/David Newell here, but I don't see him listed as having voiced this puppet.  Any chance it's him? 

(I was born in 1983 and definitely watched the show when I was young, but I only had vague memories of the show besides the opening and closing songs and a few regular characters and puppets.  But I've been watching almost a show per day through Amazon Prime for over a month now.)

Mrs. Frogg was voiced by Hedda Sharapan, who was and still is a staff member at FCI.

Dr. Frogg was voiced by Hilary Bogden (a man), who had a radio show with Bob Trow.  Hilary Bogden passed away in 2009.

Tad Frogg was voiced by Fred Rogers.

I believe that on the Canadian predecessor to MRN, the Froggs were voiced by different people.

I think the Froggs were phased out since Hilary Bogden probably had limited availability since his primary job was at a radio station, Hedda Sharapan probably was busy with other duties at FCI, and Fred probably already voiced enough puppets.

I saw that Hedda Sharapan was listed for Mrs. Frogg's voice but didn't realize she was around from the beginning as I later found out.  Thanks for the info.
