The dual copyright dates have long been a mystery.  Somebody should just ask FCI about them.

I read on another board that 1001 had a copyright date of "1970 / 1969" (yes, in that order, and with a slash), but that appears to be incorrect.  Not sure if that person imagined it or confused it with something else.

Though this will probably not answer why episodes though 1972-75 but since all of the pre-79's debuted in February of each year, naturally they would start taping new episodes late in the previous year.

I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Probably not.

I'm watching episode 1010 and it looked like there was editing there are Mr. Rogers mentions the number film about to air on picture picture, it's obvious it's a voice over.

I'm not so sure. I just took a look at this and while the audio/video is definitely off just a bit, it looks to me like the words we hear are the words he's saying. Seems more like a A/V sync issue to me.

Here is a theory: it seems that the episode involves calendar dates.  Maybe originally there was something that showed a specifically 1969 calendar.  Maybe it even showed certain holidays on their original dates, before they were moved to Mondays.

You know this may have nothing to do with anything but in many episodes from the first 3 seasons there were various technical goofs such as boom mic shadows and even some studio noises.

Perhaps devices or whatever.


The episodes where Betty goes to pick up balloons and tries to come in the big window that didn't exist later on.

Shortly after she entered just before seeing the actual mic there's a sound of something probably connected to the equipment.

I wonder if some of the editing in seasons 2 and 3 may have been because of such things but them more likely not since we can plainly see then on Amazon or www.misterrogers.org/

With perhaps the PP films I wonder if any royalty issues may had forced any edditing later on?

What do you mean by royalty issues, depictions of objects and clothes by this or that brand?
