First WGBH-captioned episode?
« on: February 25, 2019, 02:16:59 AM »
It's been a while since I last saw the show, and to be honest, I can't remember which episode was the very first one done by The Caption Center (from member station WGBH) upon taking over the National Captioning Institute. All I know is that this episode comes after #1656 and #1695, which premiered in 1992 and 1995, respectively.

Another reason why it's hard to tell is because PBS Kids skipped like, every one of these episodes between these two on reruns since early this decade.

Although, however, I do recall seeing at least one 1994 episode that was done by The Caption Center, but I forgot what it was.

The first episodes that were captioned must have been in 1987, because the announcement was made in April of 1987, just as I was accepting an honorable mention to an Award for being the best I could be to represent the Deaf and hearing impaired in Massachusetts that year.

You're actually referring to the National Captioning Institute's work on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. I meant when The Caption Center at WGBH took over for them on further work of the show's captions.
