EEN episodes vs '68 episodes
« on: June 02, 2011, 02:16:33 PM »
This would be a good question to ask - since not that many people have seen the EEN episodes of MRN - what were the similiarities and differences of EEN episodes of MRN vs the '68 broadcast versions of MRN.  Any set changes?  Songs that were sung.  Were people like Joe Negri, Betty and others with Fred by that time?  Topics that were discussed.

This definitely is something that not a lot of people realize or know about.  There is something that I'd like cleared up...  I've heard a couple things and wondering which way it really was:

Were the NOM segments from the EEN episodes used in the 1968 MRN?
Or was it that the CBC segments were used on the EEN episodes?

My gut tells me it was the second one ... but wanted to see if anybody had any insight into this.

The EEN episodes are a real ghost mystery.  We do know that 100 episodes were made.  I would like to know what themes were discussed.  Was the first opera made on this program?  I need to do more digging on this.  I guess these episodes can be viewed at the Fred Rogers Center or Elizabeth Nesbit room.

Here's my understanding...

After returning from Canada, the NOM segments from those episodes were used in the EEN episodes with new footage of Fred filmed to go with them.

Then, with the 1968 episodes began the major run of Mister Rogers Neighborhood with all new footage filmed. This explains the "confusion" on the part of the NOM neighbors in episode 0001 as some of the Neighborhood of Make-Believe was rearranged from the way things were set up in the Canadian NOM clips.

Did the EEN episodes ever air again after the national episodes started in 1968?

The Fred Rogers Center website gives descriptions of these episodes.  Strangely, some of them say that they were "not used in Pittsburgh".  I wonder what aired those days in Pittsburgh.

I don't know if any of the episodes were operas.

Did the EEN episodes have the same format as the post 1968 runs?  Did Mr. Rogers change his clothes and sing the same opening/closing songs in these episodes?

This explains those really old episodes I saw on the "Fred Rogers: America's Favorite Nieghbor" DVD.  What does EEN mean anyway?

EEN stands for Eastern Educational Network. These programs were made in Canada before Pittsburgh.
