MRN Schedule 2/19/68 - 9/4/09
« on: May 27, 2012, 11:38:09 PM »
Hello, everyone. My name is Nicky. I posted on this board a few weeks ago, and a lot of you might remember me from the yahoo board years ago (I posted there quite regularly from about 2004 - 2006). And I said that I would be posting a schedule of the weekday episodes. I know that a lot of the 9/3/84  - 8/30/96 schedule is posted on this forum, but there are some weeks missing and some of it may be hard to find. So therefore, I'm going to be posting most of those weeks. Also, I've been in touch with Hedda Sharapan who works at the Fred Rogers Company (and who also voiced Mrs. Frogg on MRN), and back in 2007, she mailed me whole September 3, 1984 - Aug. 31, 2007 schedule (but with Sept. 4, 1989 - April 27, 1990 missing). However, of those missing weeks, as well as Feb. 19, 1968 - Aug. 31, 1994, some of those weeks are confirmed either by Hedda or by other sources, and some I'll give either random or logical guesses. All debuts are confirmed. Also, ironically, there are some weeks I'm fuzzy on, and can't seem to locate Hedda's schedules at the moment since they're tucked behind a lot of material at my house, so most of the material even from Sept. 3, 1984 on is from memory. Here's the coding that I'll use in this schedule:

Red: Debut
Green: Last airing (or at least weekday airing)
Bold: Confirmed by Hedda Sharapan or official source
Italic: Confirmed by unofficial source, such as an article
Underline: What's believed to have aired, even though an unofficial source may say otherwise

Everything without a special color or font is a completely random or logical guess. Also, after certain weeks, there might be explanations, in the color or font if there is one, of why certain weeks aired when they did, or other interesting things of note about the airdate. And also, since there are only limited characters, I'll start doing it in parts, and I'll make notes of why I've picked certain stopping points for each part
That said, I'll start posting the schedule.

Part 1: 2/19/68 - 8/24/79: The pre-79 era (or era of pre-79 debuts):

2/19 -2/23/68: 1 - 5
2/26 - 3/1/68: 6 - 10
3/4 -3/8/68: 11 - 15

4/1 - 4/5/68: 31 - 35
4/8 - 4/12/68: 36 - 40
4/15 - 4/19/68: 41 - 45 (This might have been intentional, because this was an opera airing Easter Friday, the Friday after Easter, when there were a lot of opera debuts and operas not airing in their proper positions, probably because they felt like they thought operas were major and therefore wanted to air when kids were out of school, and maybe the week after Easter was a common spring break time
4/22 - 4/26/68: 46 - 50
4/29 - 5/3/68: 51 - 55
5/6 - 5/10/68: 56 - 60
5/13 - 5/17/68: 61 - 65
5/20 - 5/24/68: 66 - 70
5/27 - 5/31/68: 71 - 75

9/30 - 10/4/68: 31 - 35
10/7 - 10/11/68: 36 - 40

10/21 - 10/25/68: 46 - 50
10/28 - 11/1/68: 51 - 55
11/4 - 11/8/68: 56 - 60
11/11 - 11/15/68: 61 - 65
11/18 - 11/22/68: 66 - 70
11/25 - 11/29/68: 71 - 75
12/2 - 12/6/68: 76 - 80
12/9 - 12/13/68: 81 - 85
12/16 - 12/20/68: 86 - 90
12/23 - 12/27/68: 91 - 95
12/30/68 - 1/3/69: 96 - 100
1/6 - 1/10/69: 101 - 105
1/13 - 1/17/69: 106 - 110
1/20 - 1/24/69: 111 - 115
1/27 - 1/31/69: 116 - 120
2/3 - 2/7/69: 121 - 125
(We know that the 1969 season premiered on 2/10, therefore there was one week that didn't rerun (at least when the others had their second airing)
2/10 - 2/14/69: 1001 - 1005
2/17 - 2/21/69: 1006 - 1010
2/24 - 2/28/69: 1011 - 1015
3/3 - 3/7/69: 1016 - 1020
3/10 - 3/14/69: 1021 - 1025
3/17 - 3/21/69: 1026 - 1030
3/24 - 3/28/69: 1031 - 1035
3/31 - 4/4/69: 1036 - 1040
4/7 - 4/11/69: 1041 - 1045
4/14 - 4/18/69: 1046 - 1050
4/21 - 4/25/69: 1051 - 1055 (an opera, but this wasn't the week after Easter)
4/28 - 5/2/69: 1056 - 1060
5/5 - 5/9/69: 1061 - 1065

5/12 - 5/16/69: 121 - 125 (yes, a third airing of that week before the second of 126 - 130, but I'll explain the theory of that later)
5/19 - 5/23/69: 126 - 130
Starting on May 26, my guess is that the last airings started, and they reran the past three seasons in between season debuts, and I'll explain that theory after certain in between season airings. Also of note, though 1 - 130 debuted uninterrupted, 1 - 65 and 66 - 130 are considered two different seasons.
5/26 - 5/30/69: 1 - 5 (since that week deals somewhat with war, it does make sense for the week of Memorial Day, which until the following year, was observed on May 30 rather than the last Monday in May)
6/2 - 6/6/69: 6 - 10
6/9 - 6/13/69: 11 - 15
6/16 - 6/20/69: 16 - 20
6/23 - 6/27/69: 21 - 25
6/30 - 7/4/69: 26 - 30 (I saw the episode descriptions for this week in an old TV Guide, and they matched the University of Pittsburgh Files that I got of recaps of each episode, and that's what led me to believe both that 121 - 125 had to have aired three times before 126 - 130 twice, and that they started with episode 1 on May 26).
7/7 - 7/11/69: 31 - 35
7/14 - 7/18/69: 36 - 40
7/21 - 7/25/69: 41 - 45
7/28 - 8/1/69: 46 - 50
8/4 - 8/8/69: 51 - 55
8/11 - 8/15/69: 56 - 60
8/18 - 8/22/69: 61 - 65

8/25 - 8/29/69: 66 - 70
9/1 - 9/5/69: 71 - 75
9/8 - 9/12/69: 76 - 80
9/15 - 9/19/69: 81 - 85
9/22 - 9/26/69: 86 - 90
9/29 - 10/3/69: 91 - 95
10/6 - 10/10/69: 96 - 100
10/13 - 10/17/69: 101 - 105
10/20 - 10/24/69: 106 - 110 (another TV Guide I found)
10/27 - 10/31/69: 111 - 115 (As it happens, 115 is appropriate for Halloween!)
11/3 - 11/7/69: 116 - 120
11/10 - 11/14/69: 121 - 125
11/17 - 11/21/69: 126 - 130
11/24 - 11/28/69: 1001 - 1005
12/1 - 12/5/69: 1006 - 1010
12/8 - 12/12/69: 1011 - 1015
12/15 - 12/19/69: 1016 - 1020
12/22 - 12/26/69: 1021 - 1025
12/29/69 - 1/2/70: 1026 - 1030
1/5 - 1/9/70: 1031 - 1035
1/12 - 1/16/70: 1036 - 1040
1/19 - 1/23/70: 1041 - 1045
1/26 - 1/30/70: 1046 - 1050 (1050, Chef Brockett's birthday episode, would air on Don Brockett's actual birthday!!!!!!)
2/2 - 2/6/70: 1066 - 1070
2/9 - 2/13/70: 1071 - 1075
2/16 - 2/20/70: 1076 - 1080
2/23 - 2/27/70: 1081 - 1085
3/2 - 3/6/70: 1086 - 1090
3/9 - 3/13/70: 1091 - 1095
3/16 - 3/20/70: 1096 - 1100
3/23 - 3/27/70: 1101 - 1105 (1101, the death of a Goldfish episode, debuted Holy Monday, the Monday before Easter, which could have been intentional because Holy Week commemorates the death of Jesus. However, the birth of Ana Platypus, 1104, would be Holy Thursday)
3/30 - 4/3/70: 1106 - 1110 (1110 is a play, and that would air Easter Friday)
4/6 - 4/10/70: 1111 - 1115
4/13 - 4/17/70: 1116 - 1120
4/20 - 4/24/70: 1121 - 1125 (an opera would debut not Easter Friday but the Friday during Passover, a common spring break period for schools, so that could have been intentional)
4/27 - 5/1/70: 1126 - 1130

Like in 1969, I'm guessing they interrupted the previous season's second run for the following season debut, hence the following three weeks.
5/4 - 5/8/70: 1051 - 1055
5/11 - 5/15/70: 1056 - 1060
5/18 - 5/22/70: 1061 - 1065
5/25 - 5/29/70: 66 - 70
6/1 - 6/5/70: 71 - 75
6/8 - 6/12/70: 76 - 80
6/15 - 6/19/70: 81 - 85
6/22 - 6/26/70: 86 - 90
6/29 - 7/3/70: 91 - 95
7/6 - 7/10/70: 96 - 100
7/13 - 7/17/70: 101 - 105
7/20 - 7/24/70: 106 - 110
7/27 - 7/31/70: 111 - 115
8/3 - 8/7/70: 116 - 120

8/10 - 8/14/70: 121 - 125
8/17 - 8/21/70: 126 - 130
8/24 - 8/28/70: 1001 - 1005
8/31 - 9/4/70: 1006 - 1010
9/7 - 9/11/70: 1011 - 1015
9/14 - 9/18/70: 1016 - 1020
9/21 - 9/25/70: 1021 - 1025
9/28 - 10/2/70: 1026 - 1030
10/5 - 10/9/70: 1031 - 1035
10/12 - 10/16/70: 1036 - 1040
10/19 - 10/23/70: 1041 - 1045
10/26 - 10/30/70: 1046 - 1050
11/2 - 11/6/70: 1051 - 1055
11/9 - 11/13/70: 1056 - 1060
11/16 - 11/20/70: 1061 - 1065
11/23 - 11/27/70: 1066 - 1070
11/30 - 12/4/70: 1071 - 1075
12/7 - 12/11/70: 1076 - 1080
12/14 - 12/18/70: 1081 - 1085
12/21 - 12/25/70: 1086 - 1090
12/28/70 - 1/1/71: 1091 - 1095
1/4 - 1/8/71: 1096 - 1100
1/11 - 1/15/71: 1101 - 1105
1/18 - 1/22/71: 1106 - 1110
1/25 - 1/29/71: 1111 - 1115
2/1 - 2/5/71: 1116 - 1120
2/8 - 2/12/71: 1121 - 1125 (This airing has multiple significances. It's an opera airing both on a holiday (Lincoln's Birthday, which was widely observed then), the Friday before a holiday (President's Day, the first year ever it was observed on the third Monday in February rather than Feb. 22 and called President's Day rather than Washington's Birthday), and the Friday before Valentine's Day, it's a romantic opera and one that deals with the color red!)
From this point until the end of the pre-79 era, the season premiere was always President's Day, which could easily have been intentional, so that kids could see major episodes like season premieres on a holiday.
2/15 - 2/19/71: 1131 - 1135
2/22 - 2/26/71: 1136 - 1140
3/1 - 3/5/71: 1141 - 1145
3/8 - 3/12/71: 1146 - 1150
3/15 - 3/19/71: 1151 - 1155
3/22 - 3/26/71: 1156 - 1160
3/29 - 4/2/71: 1161 - 1165
4/5 - 4/9/71: 1166 - 1170 (an opera airing not Easter Friday, but Holy Thursday (and one of the two Thursday operas). However, though Holy Week could be a standard spring break week, that could have been intentional for Reardon's birthday, as they could have easily thought that in 1977, the next time his birthday was a Friday, there wouldn't be any more new episodes).
4/12 - 4/16/71: 1171 - 1175
4/19 - 4/23/71: 1176 - 1180
4/26 - 4/30/71: 1181 - 1185
5/3 - 5/7/71: 1186 - 1190
5/10 - 5/14/71: 1191 - 1195

5/17 - 5/21/71: 1126 - 1130
Although unconfirmed, from this point until 2/13/76, 13-week seasons would air complete and uninterrupted. Since 1456 - 1460 and 1461 - 1465 are considered separate seasons, one could say that happened until Aug. 31, 1979, although the seasons weren't all 13 weeks.
5/24 - 5/28/71: 1001 - 1005
5/31 - 6/4/71: 1006 - 1010

10/11 - 10/15/71: 1101 - 1105
10/18 - 10/22/71: 1106 - 1110
10/25 - 10/29/71: 1111 - 1115 (Paley Center for Media has 1101 on 10/25, but I really think that's incorrect, as it doesn't fit with what the TV Guides and articles confirmed of the past 3 seasons in between season debuts)

Part 2: 2/23/76 - 8/24/79 The bulk (the long period of reruns):

We know this started with 1001, since 1456 - 1460 is designed to prepare kids for 1001 or 1066.

Re: MRN Schedule 2/19/68 - 9/4/09

Part 3: 8/27/79 - 8/31/84 (the post-75 era before the confirmed schedules from Hedda)

8/27 - 8/31/79: 1461 - 1465 (Starting School) As this week has to do with preparing kids for the start of the schoolyear, it's become an annual occasion week for this time of year. Amazingly, this is both the week to air the most times (30) and the only week ever to have all its episodes air in one month (August). But it would never air this late again.
9/3 - 9/7/79: 1456 - 1460 (though, as I mentioned for 2/9 - 2/13/76, 1451 - 1460 have to air back to back, I really do believe that this is when it aired, with 1451 - 1455 two weeks earlier).
9/10 - 9/14/79: 1001 - 1005
9/17 - 9/21/79: 1006 - 1010
9/24 - 9/28/79: 1011 - 1015
10/1 - 10/5/79: 1016 - 1020
10/8 - 10/12/79: 1021 - 1025
10/15 - 10/19/79: 1026 - 1030
10/22 - 10/26/79: 1031 - 1035
10/29 - 11/2/79: 1041 - 1045
11/5 - 11/9/79: 1046 - 1050
11/12 - 11/16/79: 1061 - 1065
11/19 - 11/23/79: 1066 - 1070 (someone on the yahoo board remembered the debut of the model pan, which was this week, on Thanksgiving week, so this could fit that person's memory)
11/26 - 11/30/79: 1076 - 1080
12/3 - 12/7/79: 1081 - 1085
12/10 - 12/14/79: 1086 - 1090
12/17 - 12/21/79: 1091 - 1095
12/24 - 12/28/79: 1096 - 1180
12/31/79 - 1/4/80: 1101 - 1105 (appropriately, the episode about death would air when kids don't have school, and a lot of people don't have work since some offices are closed the week b between Christmas and New Year's, and for those that don't, it'd mean a broken 4-day weekend otherwise)
1/7 - 1/11/80: 1106 - 1110
1/14 - 1/18/80: 1111 - 1115
1/21 - 1/25/80: 1116 - 1120
1/28 - 2/1/80: 1121 - 1125
2/4 - 2/8/80: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes) And this date makes sense because 1076 - 1125 is one long story arc (Queen Sara's pregnancy and the births of Prince Tuesday and Ana Platypus, and so it makes sense to have the debut after the long story arc. And for this reason, the four banned weeks not airing in 1979 makes sense.
2/11 - 2/15/80: 1126 - 1130
2/18 - 2/22/80: 1131 - 1135
2/25 - 2/29/80: 1136 - 1140
3/3 - 3/7/80: 1141 - 1145
3/10 - 3/14/80: 1146 - 1150
3/17 - 3/21/80: 1151 - 1155
3/24 - 3/28/80: 1156 - 1160
3/31 - 4/4/80: 1161 - 1165
4/7 - 4/11/80: 1166 - 1170 (Easter Thursday opera!)
4/14 - 4/18/80: 1171 - 1175
4/21 - 4/25/80: 1176 - 1180
4/28 - 5/2/80: 1181 - 1185
5/5 - 5/9/80: 1186 - 1190
5/12 - 5/16/80: 1191 - 1195
5/19 - 5/23/80: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (Friday before a holiday, Memorial Day, so therefore probably intentional
5/26 - 5/30/80: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes) This is the first of several post-75 runs airing in backwards order, and they're all part of the Mister Rogers Talks to Parents series, where they'd air that special Sunday night based on the theme of the week, and then the week itself. Starting School and Superheroes are two of those weeks, while Bubbleland is not. Such a post-75 run has been known as a MRN Summer. Some are confirmed by Hedda, I'll let you know as they debut what those weeks are. Also, apart from the opera the Friday before a holiday, this interruption could have been then since it's in between seasons
6/2 - 6/6/80: 1196 - 1200
6/9 - 6/13/80: 1201 - 1205
6/16 - 6/20/80: 1206 - 1210
6/23 - 6/27/80: 1211 - 1215

7/7 - 7/11/80: 1221 - 1225
7/14 - 7/18/80: 1226 - 1230
7/21 - 7/25/80: 1231 - 1235
7/28 - 8/1/80: 1236 - 1240
Then an unconfirmed backwards MRN Summer, since Starting School is confirmed.

2/23 - 2/27/81: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (amazingly, an episode that has something to do with death exactly 22 years before Fred died!)
3/2 - 3/6/81: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes)
3/9 - 3/13/81: 1366 - 1370

5/18 - 5/22/81: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes)
5/25 - 5/29/81: 1476 - 1480 (Divorce)
6/1 - 6/5/81: 1481 - 1485 (Competition) (a Mister Rogers Talks to Parents week) (This MRN Summer would feature only non-anual occasion Mister Rogers Talks to Parents weeks, and it would be forwards because a 1425/1426 interruption for a random post-75 run start date makes no sense at all)
6/8 - 6/12/81: 1416 - 1420
6/15 - 6/19/81: 1421 - 1425
6/22 - 6/26/81: 1426 - 1430
6/29 - 7/3/81: 1431 - 1435
7/6 - 7/10/81: 1436 - 1440
7/13 - 7/17/81: 1441 - 1445 (then there'd be a 1445/1446 interruption for a post-75 run, which makes sense that interruption seems to be common, even though 1450/1451 is perfectly okay (although I think, but I'm not sure, that in 1451, they talk about the birthday "last week" and 1455/1456 had been done before, and maybe they smartly realized that it doesn't work)
7/20 - 7/24/81: 1486 - 1490 (Play)
7/27 - 7/31/81: 1481 - 1485 (Competition)

8/10 - 8/14/81: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes)
8/17 - 8/21/81: 1461 - 1470 (Starting School)

8/24 - 8/28/81: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (this was probably at the end because it isn't a Talks to Parents week)
8/31 - 9/4/81: 1446 - 1450
9/7 - 9/11/81: 1451 - 1455
9/14 - 9/18/81: 1456 - 1460

10/19 - 10/23/81: 1021 - 1025
10/26 - 10/30/81: 1026 - 1030
From what we know about the 1983 - 84 airing of the 1969 episodes, which I'll explain when I get there, and that 1001 - 1030 is one story arc about King Friday and Queen Sara's courtship, marriage, and honeymoon, we really think that the not banned 1031 - 1065 episodes last aired over the next four weeks.
11/2 - 11/6/81: 1031 - 1035
11/9 - 11/13/81: 1041 - 1045

5/10 - 5/14/82: 1181 - 1185
5/17 - 5/21/82:1186 - 1190
5/24 - 5/28/82:  1191 - 1195 (a yahoo member found an article from 5/20 with 1192 and 1193 airing "next week", and this means an interruption in between seasons, which makes sense)
5/31 - 6/4/82: 1496 - 1500 (Pets) (a Mister Rogers Talks to Parents week)
6/7 - 6/11/82: 1196 - 1200
6/14 - 6/18/82: 1201 - 1205
6/21 - 6/25/82: 1206 - 1210
6/28 - 7/2/82: 1501 - 1505 (Creativity) (a Mister Rogers Talks to Parents week. And also another opera debuting the Friday before a holiday)
7/5 - 7/9/82: 1486 - 1490 (Play) (though Hedda gave me a draft of aschedule with a MRN Summer starting with Discipline, I also found out that because of 4th of July, A Capital Fourth aired, as it usually does, on 4th of July, so most likely a MRN Summer week didn't air.
7/12 - 7/16/82: 1496 - 1500 (Pets)
Then, I'm thinking that the following weeks aired one week later than what Hedda has in her draft, since someone recently mentioned to me that Aug. 15 was a MRN Talks to Parents Week, while in Hedda's draft it was Bubbleland, and besides, it gets Starting School to air the exact same week as the both the previous and following two years

At this point, the first post-75 run that's not a MRN Summer would begin.

10/3 - 10/7/83: 1516 - 1520 (Daycare & Night Care) (This week would be the only and last MRN Summer week)
Articles said the next weeks aired at some point in October, November, and December, but not exactly when, so they won't get italicized.
10/10 - 10/14/83: 1501 - 1505 (Creativity) (Ironically, if Daycare & Night Care had aired in its proper position, the opera would air the Friday before a holiday)
10/17 - 10/21/83: 1506 - 1510 (Friends)
10/24 - 10/28/83: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes) (At this point, Superheroes became an annual occasion week as italways aired at this time of year because it's appropriate for Halloween)
10/31 - 11/4/83: 1511 - 1515 (Games) (This gets italicized because the article says 1511 in October and 1512 - 1515 in November)
11/7 - 11/11/83: 1521 - 1525 (Conflict) (As this is a week about war, this was probably intentional for Veterans' Day)
11/14 - 11/18/83: 1446 - 1450
11/21 - 11/25/83: 1451 - 1455
11/28 - 12/2/83: 1456 - 1460 (Again, the articles have 1456 - 1458 in November and 1459 and 1460 in Decemeber)

12/12 - 12/16/83: 1006 - 1010
12/19 - 12/23/83: 1011 - 1015
12/26 - 12/30/83: 1016 - 1020
At this point, the articles stop. However, as I said for 1981, the reason why I'm guessing 1021 - 1030 in the next two weeks are the last 1969 episodes is because we know 1066 - 1070 and 1076 - 1220 (1221 is the first day of Hedda's confirmed schedule) aired after 1984, and the schedule fits completely with those weeks airing between then and the beginning of Hedda's confirmed schedule
1/2 - 1/6/84: 1021 - 1025
1/9 - 1/13/84: 1026 - 1030

1/16 - 1/20/84: 1066 - 1070

2/20 - 2/24/84: 1096 - 1100
2/27 - 3/2/84: 1101 - 1105 (Amazingly, the death of a goldfish episode would air on the day Fred then died 19 years later!)
3/5 - 3/9/84: 1106 - 1110
3/12 - 3/16/84: 1111 - 1115
3/19 - 3/23/84: 1116 - 1120 (Amazingly, there'd be a birth on Fred's birthday!!!!!!)
3/26 - 3/30/84: 1121 - 1125
4/2 - 4/6/84: 1526 - 1530 (Work) (the reason for this debut then rather than the usual February/March is to avoid the 1076 - 1125 interruption
4/9 - 4/13/84: 1126 - 1130
4/16 - 4/20/84: 1131 - 1135
4/23 - 4/27/84: 1136 - 1140
4/30 - 5/4/84: 1166 - 1170 (the reason for this is because of the debut May 7 - 11, and 1141 - 1165 can't be interrupted because of the platypuses' trip to Australia, and some of the platypuses appear in that debut week. I don't though understand why the debut had to be that week. My guess, even though they hadn't had it before, is so that they could have the debut in May, since they had that for the next 5 years after that. Also, ironically, this interruption means two operas in a row, which interestingly enough they had for the next (and last) two opera debuts, both in May)
5/7 - 5/11/84: 1531 - 1535 (Grandparents) (The debut then would also mean the opera the Friday before a semi-holiday, Mother's Day)
5/14 - 5/18/84: 1141 - 1145
5/21 - 5/25/84: 1146 - 1150
5/28 - 6/1/84: 1151 - 1155
6/4 - 6/11/84: 1156 - 1160
6/11 - 6/15/84: 1161 - 1165
6/18 - 6/22/84: 1171 - 1175
6/25 - 6/29/84: 1176 - 1180
7/2 - 7/6/84: 1181 - 1185
7/9 - 7/13/84: 1186 - 1190
7/16 - 7/20/84: 1191 - 1195

Thanks for posting all this - very interesting.    I know this isn't "official" but it does seem like you have a good amount of evidence to back up your theories.   I'm surprised that they would have aired B&W episodes in regular rotation after 1001 debuted, but I guess TV Guide doesn't lie.

By the way, assuming this is accurate, it seems that before 1976, the last episode time an episode from the NET building/yellow walls/wainscotting era aired was on 8/18/72.   That was still a gap of about three and a half years, so I can definitely see why making 1456-1460 was necessary.    Also, assuming it wasn't actually used in 1336, the last previous time that an episode with the "Tomorrow" song aired was 7/25/74, about a year and a half before.

I don't see any harm in airing B&Ws after 1001, as long as it's not too many color episodes, just like they aired 1001 after 1525, and 1066 after 1610.

Also, assuming it wasn't actually used in 1336, the last previous time that an episode with the "Tomorrow" song aired was 7/25/74, about a year and a half before.

Actually, it was in 1459, most likely to prepare kids for 1001 or 1066, so that doesn't matter so much. Now I'll proceed with the rest of the schedule, starting with what Hedda confirmed

Yeah, I knew that.   I was just saying I understood why Mister Rogers would need to prepare viewers for hearing that song.

Part 4: 9/3/84 - 9/1/89 (the first of the confirmed schedules from Hedda)

9/3 - 9/7/84: 1221 - 1225
9/10 - 9/14/84: 1226 - 1230
9/17 - 9/21/84: 1231 - 1235
9/24 - 9/28/84: 1236 - 1240
10/1 - 10/5/84: 1241 - 1245
10/8 - 10/12/84: 1251 - 1255 (this is to avoid the post-75 run breaking the carryover of 1255/1256, even though this is the first time ever of a tradition of the post-75 run starting with 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes) at its annual occasion time and the earliest week that isn't an annual occasion week for a whole other time of year. However, interestingly enough, airing Superheroes one week later would make sense.
10/15 - 10/19/84: 1256 - 1260
10/22 - 10/26/84: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes) (As I said, one week later does make more sense, since most of it would air on or before Halloween, and other annual occasion weeks for holidays when on Wednesday have had the Thursday and Friday episodes air after the holiday.
10/29 - 11/2/84: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland)
11/5 - 11/9/84: 1476 - 1480 (Divorce)

11/19 - 11/23/84: 1536 - 1540 (Food) (Starting the tradition of Thanksgiving week debuts, and interestingly enough after that tradition came the tradition of this week being the annual occasion week for Thanksgiving)

12/3 - 12/7/84: 1491 - 1495 (Discipline)
12/10 - 12/14/84: 1506 - 1510 (Friends) (why this week, I'll explain my theory when I explain when the weeks before aired, and this I believe is the proper position week
12/17 - 12/21/84: 1496 - 1500 (Pets) (this could be considered an annual occasion week for Christmas, and they wanted to air it as close to Christmas as possible with all episodes airing before Christmas, since 1496 is about gifts)
12/24 - 12/28/84: 1531 - 1535 (Grandparents) (Christmas/New Year's opera. And interestingly enough they'd have an opera at that time of year until 1994)
12/31/84 - 1/4/85: 1516 - 1520 (Daycare & Night Care) (this became the New Year's annual occasion week, later replaced with 1611 - 1615 (When Parents Go to Work), also about daycare, though what daycare has to do with New Year's is a mystery
1/7 - 1/11/85: 1511 - 1515 (Games)
1/14 - 1/18/85: 1521 - 1525 (Conflict)
1/21 - 1/25/85: 1526 - 1530 (Work)
1/28 - 2/1/85: 1501 - 1505 (Creativity) (Yes, it's an opera, but not the Friday before any holiday, except Groundhog Day which isn't as big a holiday like other holidays for which this tradition has been followed)
2/4 - 2/8/85: 1541 - 1545 (No & Yes) (The debut here and not the following week makes it even more ironic that the post-75 run didn't start one week later, since it deals with a wedding and the majority of the week would appropriately air on or before Valentine's Day. But interestingly enough the wedding itself would air after, since that's 1545
2/11 - 2/15/85: 1246 - 1250
2/18 - 2/22/85: 1261 - 1265

4/1 - 4/5/85: 1291 - 1295
4/8 - 4/12/85: 1296 - 1300 (Easter Friday opera!)

7/22 - 7/26/85: 1366 - 1370
7/29 - 8/2/85: 1376 - 1380 (Starting School at its annual occasion time would interrupt between 1385 and 1386, which is wrong, even though they avoided that interruption for random airings much later)
8/5 - 8/9/85: 1381 - 1385
8/12 - 8/16/85: 1386 - 1390
8/19 - 8/23/85: 1461 - 1465 (Starting School)
8/26 - 8/30/85: 1371 - 1375
Now comes one of the biggest mysteries of the schedule, as rather than air 1391 on 9/2, they aired 1376 again after, yes, an only 5-week interval!
9/2 - 9/6/85: 1376 - 1380
9/9 - 9/13/85: 1381 - 1385
9/16 - 9/20/85: 1386 - 1390

10/14 - 10/18/85: 1406 - 1410
10/21 - 10/25/85: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes) (even crazier than the year before, since more of it would air on or before Halloween if one week later)
10/28 - 11/1/85: 1541 - 1545 (No & Yes) (it was basically switched with 1476 - 1480 (Divorce), as seen in February, for reasons unknown. Maybe it has to do with the fact that 1480 deals with travel, and it aired President's Week when a lot of kids are on vacation, and interestingly enough also that's the week it debuted in 1981. Although that was the last time it aired President's Week. And even without the switch, Divorce would air one week early.
11/4 - 11/8/85: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland)
11/11 - 11/15/85: 1481 - 1485 (Competition)

12/9 - 12/13/85: 1506 - 1510 (Friends) (For this, same explanation as 1984)
12/16 - 12/20/85: 1496 - 1500 (Pets) (For this, same explanation as 1984)
12/23 - 12/27/85: 1531 - 1535 (Grandparents) (For this, same explanation as 1984)
12/30/85 - 1/3/86: 1511 - 1515 (Games)
1/6 - 1/10/86: 1516 - 1520 (Daycare & Night Care) (interestingly enough, both at its annual occasion time and in its proper position!)
1/13 - 1/17/86: 1526 - 1530 (Work) (therefore, switched with 1521 - 1525 (Conflict) for reasons unknown
1/20 - 1/24/86: 1501 - 1505 (Creativity) (again, though an opera, this isn't the Friday before any holiday, even as minor as Groundhog Day, so this week is a real mystery even though interestingly enough it is the Friday after a holiday)

Then comes two other mysterious weeks of airings, and the only known time a pre-79 is airing that's nowhere near proper position pre-79 airings. And it leads to two operas in a row
4/21 - 4/25/86: 1286 - 1290
4/28 - 5/2/86: 1296 - 1300 (an opera, but not the Friday before any holiday. However, with Passover 4/24 - 5/1, the opera would air on the last weekday of a lot of spring breaks)
5/5 - 5/9/86: 1561 - 1565 (Celebrations) (this opera would once again be the Friday before Mother's Day)
5/12 - 5/16/86: 1446 - 1450
5/19 - 5/23/86: 1451 - 1455
5/26 - 5/30/86: 1456 - 1460
6/2 - 6/6/86: 1066 - 1070
6/9 - 6/13/86: 1076 - 1080
6/16 - 6/20/86: 1081 - 1085
6/23 - 6/27/86: 1086 - 1090
6/30 - 7/4/86: 1091 - 1095
7/7 - 7/11/86: 1096 - 1100
7/14 - 7/18/86: 1101 - 1105
7/21 - 7/25/86: 1106 - 1110
7/28 - 8/1/86: 1111 - 1115
8/4 - 8/8/86: 1116 - 1120
8/11 - 8/15/86: 1461 - 1465 (Starting School) (I don't understand why this week, when it never aired this early before, and 1120/1121 isn't a great interruption at all
8/18 - 8/22/86: 1121 - 1125
8/25 - 8/29/86: 1126 - 1130
9/1 - 9/5/86: 1131 - 1135
9/8 - 9/12/86: 1136 - 1140
9/15 - 9/19/86: 1141 - 1145
9/22 - 9/26/86: 1146 - 1150
9/29 - 10/3/86: 1151 - 1155
10/6 - 10/10/86: 1156 - 1160
10/13 - 10/17/86: 1161 - 1165
10/20 - 10/24/86: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes) (This is really crazier than the two years before, since one week later none of it would air after Halloween!)
10/27 - 10/31/86: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland)
11/3 - 11/7/86: 1476 - 1480 (Divorce)
11/10 - 11/14/86: 1481 - 1485 (Competition)
11/17 - 11/21/86: 1486 - 1490 (Play)
11/24 - 11/28/86: 1566 - 1570 (Playthings)
12/1 - 12/5/86: 1491 - 1495 (Play)
12/8 - 12/12/86: 1496 - 1500 (Pets) (So therefore here it's in its proper position, so maybe they felt like if it could air at any point near Christmas, even if not as close as possible)
12/15 - 12/19/86: 1501 - 1505 (Creativity) (So therefore, the Christmas/New Year's opera in its proper position)
12/22 - 12/26/86: 1506 - 1510 (Friends)
12/29/86 - 1/2/87: 1511 - 1515 (Games)
1/5 - 1/9/87: 1516 - 1520 (Again at its annual occasion time in its proper position)
1/12 - 1/16/87: 1526 - 1530 (Work)
1/19 - 1/23/87: 1521 - 1525 (Conflict) (Why these two were switched is a mystery)
1/26 - 1/30/87: 1531 - 1535 (Grandparents)
2/2 - 2/6/87: 1536 - 1540 (Food)
2/9 - 2/13/87: 1541 - 1545 (No & Yes) (so interestingly enough, just like for the debut in 1985 but in its proper position, the wedding is the Friday (and in this case, episode) before Valentine's Day)
2/16 - 2/20/87: 1546 - 1550 (Music)
2/23 - 2/27/87: 1551 - 1555 (Families)
3/2 - 3/6/87: 1561 - 1565 (Celebrations)
3/9 - 3/13/87: 1571 - 1575 (Dance)
3/16 - 3/20/87: 1561 - 1565 (Making & Creating) (Why these last two non-debuts were switched is a mystery, especially since March 6 isn't the Friday before any holiday. It is the Friday after Ash Wednesday, but I don't see how that's significant.
3/23 - 3/27/87: 1166 - 1170 (Maybe those last two post-75 non-debuts could be to avoid two operas in a row, especially less than a week apart with the later one on Thursday
3/30 - 4/3/87: 1171 - 1175
4/6 - 4/10/87: 1176 - 1180
4/13 - 4/17/87: 1181 - 1185
4/20 - 4/24/87: 1186 - 1190
4/27 - 5/1/87: 1191 - 1195
5/4 - 5/8/87: 1576 - 1580 (Making Mistakes) (interruption in between seasons, which makes sense)
5/11 - 5/15/87: 1196 - 1200
5/18 - 5/22/87: 1201 - 1205
5/25 - 5/29/87: 1206 - 1210
6/1 - 6/5/87: 1211 - 1215
6/8 - 6/12/87: 1216 - 1220
6/15 - 6/19/87: 1221 - 1225
6/22 - 6/26/87: 1226 - 1230
6/29 - 7/3/87: 1231 - 1235
7/6 - 7/10/87: 1236 - 1240
7/13 - 7/17/87: 1241 - 1245
7/20 - 7/24/87: 1246 - 1250
7/27 - 7/31/87: 1251 - 1255
8/3 - 8/7/87: 1256 - 1260
8/10 - 8/14/87: 1461 - 1465 (Starting School) (another in between season interruption)
8/17 - 8/21/87: 1261 - 1265
8/24 - 8/28/87: 1266 - 1270
8/31 - 9/4/87: 1271 - 1275
9/7 - 9/11/87: 1276 - 1280
9/14 - 9/18/87: 1281 - 1285
9/21 - 9/25/87: 1286 - 1290

Even though it's a whole 8 years before pre-79s stopped airing entirely, last airings start here, because at the time of the next cycle in 1992, they realized they couldn't air beige walled episodes anymore, since in 1326 - 1327, they're painted blue and are for the rest of the series. Though the one mystery is why, when 1326 - 1335 is a story arc, and not 1326 - 1350, why they went from 1290 to 1351, not 1336.
9/28 - 10/2/87: 1296 - 1300 (This is to avoid the post-75 run interrupting between 1310 and 1311, which can't be. Though why, when the story arc is 1301 - 1315, not 1296 - 1315, why 1291 - 1295 was the week that was moved and not this week, is a mystery. Maybe in 1301 - 1305, they talk about the opera as being "last week." Also this means this opera would air in the fall, which is appropriate since it's about potato bugs, and it's airing the Friday before (and day of, starting at sundown) a Jewish holiday, Yom Kippur
10/5 - 10/9/87: 1301 - 1305
10/12 - 10/16/87: 1306 - 1310
10/19 - 10/23/87: 1311 - 1315

10/26 - 10/30/87: 1461 - 1465 (Superheroes)
11/2 - 11/6/87: 1476 - 1480 (Divorce) (Why Windstorm in Bubbleland was moved is a mystery. Maybe since it aired the weekend before Thanksgiving, they wanted the opera to air as close to Thanksgiving as possible, even though that didn't happen in all years, although Windstorm in Bubbleland and Creativity have often moved to November in later years)
11/9 - 11/13/87: 1481 - 1485 (Competiton)
11/16 - 11/20/87: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (as I said, week before Thanksgiving)
11/23 - 11/27/87: 1581 - 1585 (Alike & Different)

12/28/87 - 1/1/88: 1506 - 1510 (Friends)
1/4 - 1/8/88: 1511 - 1515 (Games) (Yes, no Daycare & Night Care at its annual occasion time, but only that year because the week that did air was a PBS sweepstakes in which each show must have at least one episode about daycare)

1/18 - 1/22/88: 1526 - 1530 (Work)

3/21 - 3/25/88: 1571 - 1575 (Dance)
3/28 - 4/1/88: 1576 - 1580 (Making Mistakes)
4/4 - 4/8/88: 1561 - 1565 (Celebrations) (the explanation could have to do with two things. It's an opera airing Easter Friday and Reardon's birthday!)
4/11 - 4/15/88: 1516 - 1520 (Daycare & Night Care) (of course this was the week of the sweepstakes)
4/18 - 4/22/88: 1291 - 1295
4/25 - 4/2988: 1316 - 1320

5/2 - 5/6/88: 1591 - 1595 (Kindness & Unkindness) (yes, only a two-week interval of pre-79s, and it makes no sense when the following week would mean an interruption in between seasons. But they could have felt like 1325/1326 isn't the best place, since it'd mean only one beige walled episode in between blue walled episodes, which could be confusing
5/9 - 5/13/88: 1321 - 1325

8/1 - 8/5/88: 1381 - 1385
8/8 - 8/12/88: 1386 - 1390
8/15 - 8/19/88: 1461 - 1465 (Starting School) (in between season interruption)
8/22 - 8/26/88: 1391 - 1395
8/29 - 9/2/88: 1396 - 1400 (one of four weeks to last air at this time for mysterious reasons, probably to phase out pre-79s
9/5 - 9/9/88: 1401 - 1405
9/12 - 9/16/88: 1406 - 1410
9/19 - 9/23/88: 1411 - 1415
9/26 - 9/30/88: 1416 - 1420 (two more weeks to last air at this time for mysterious reasons, probably to phase out pre-79s)

10/3 - 10/7/88: 1436 - 1440 (the whole 1421 - 1435 story arc moved to avoid a 1430/1431 interruption  for the post-75 run. But the reason why the post-75 run started when it did is a mystery, especially since 1435/1436 would mean starting with Superheroes at its annual occasion time, as in the last four years)
10/10 - 10/14/88: 1441 - 1445 (the last of the mysterious four weeks to last air, probably to phase out pre-79s)
10/17 - 10/21/88: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (so therefore, that's why if this was 1431 - 1435 and the last two weeks, 1421 - 1430, in their proper positions, it'd mean no breaking of carryovers and a standard post-75 run start date)
10/24 - 10/28/88: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes)

12/12 - 12/16/88: 1501 - 1505 (Creativity) (why Pets is moved is a mystery, especially since it would air at Christmas, and this is the earliest Christmas/New Year's opera. But I'll explain a theory when I get to when it aired

12/26 - 12/30/88: 1496 - 1500 (Pets) (That explanation could maybe be because Ana's birthday episode, 1500, would air on Betty Aberlin's birthday)

1/9 - 1/13/89: 1511 - 1515 (Games)

1/23 - 1/27/89: 1541 - 1545 (No & Yes) (why this week is a mystery)
1/30 - 2/3/89: 1531 - 1535 (Grandparents)
2/6 - 2/10/89: 1551 - 1555 (Families) (why this week is a mystery, although airing it close to No & Yes makes sense because that's when Betty Okonak Templeton and James Michael Jones marry, and Families is when they adopt their baby Carrie Dell)

5/1 - 5/5/89: 1606 - 1610 (Josephine the Short-Neck Giraffe (this makes it even more mysterious that the post-75 run didn't start with the usual Superheroes since the opera would air the Friday before Mother's Day.

8/7 - 8/11/89: 1106 - 1110

« Reply #10 on: May 28, 2012, 09:50:44 PM »
4/15 - 4/19/68: 41 - 45 (This might have been intentional, because this was an opera airing Easter Friday, the Friday after Easter, when there were a lot of opera debuts and operas not airing in their proper positions, probably because they felt like they thought operas were major and therefore wanted to air when kids were out of school, and maybe the week after Easter was a common spring break time

I think the only confirmed reruns of operas airing not in their proper position on Easter Friday were in 1988 and 1991.  In 1988, that day was also Reardon's birthday (sadly, his last birthday), and in 1991, it was the Friday before his birthday, so it's not clear whether it was done due to Reardon's birthday or due to Easter Friday in those years.

Quote
2/3 - 2/7/69: 121 - 125
(We know that the 1969 season premiered on 2/10, therefore there was one week that didn't rerun (at least when the others had their second airing)

I have often speculated that 1-5 was the week that didn't rerun, because it was intended to prepare kids who watched the EEN episodes for national MRN, which would be moot during reairings of this season.

Quote
5/12 - 5/16/69: 121 - 125 (yes, a third airing of that week before the second of 126 - 130, but I'll explain the theory of that later)
5/19 - 5/23/69: 126 - 130
Starting on May 26, my guess is that the last airings started, and they reran the past three seasons in between season debuts, and I'll explain that theory after certain in between season airings. Also of note, though 1 - 130 debuted uninterrupted, 1 - 65 and 66 - 130 are considered two different seasons.

I've never heard that 1-65 and 66-130 are considered 2 different seasons.  I know it was speculated that 66 was when the new set debuted.  But Tim said that the new set debuted gradually, and by Episode 21, the set was entirely the new set.

Quote
6/30 - 7/4/69: 26 - 30 (I saw the episode descriptions for this week in an old TV Guide, and they matched the University of Pittsburgh Files that I got of recaps of each episode, and that's what led me to believe both that 121 - 125 had to have aired three times before 126 - 130 twice, and that they started with episode 1 on May 26).

First of all, especially back then, I'm not sure that all stations followed a national schedule.  Secondly, that could have been a timeslot that aired the previous week's episode.

Quote
10/20 - 10/24/69: 106 - 110 (another TV Guide I found)

Same comment as above.

Quote
10/27 - 10/31/69: 111 - 115 (As it happens, 115 is appropriate for Halloween!)

How is 115 appropriate for Halloween?  If anything, 116-120 is more appropriate for Halloween.  The description for 115 says:

Mr. Rogers plays in a sand box on his porch. He tries on an Arab robe and pretends to ride a stuffed camel. Betty Aberlin borrows some sand for Lady Elaine's sandbox.
In the NOM, Donkey Hodie is bothered by the sand blowing from Lady Elaine's sandbox. Mr. McFeely brings water to make the sand wet so it won't blow.



Quote
Like in 1969, I'm guessing they interrupted the previous season's second run for the following season debut, hence the following three weeks.
5/4 - 5/8/70: 1051 - 1055
5/11 - 5/15/70: 1056 - 1060
5/18 - 5/22/70: 1061 - 1065
5/25 - 5/29/70: 66 - 70

Again, starting with 66 is just completely random.

2/8 - 2/12/71: 1121 - 1125 (This airing has multiple significances. It's an opera airing both on a holiday (Lincoln's Birthday, which was widely observed then), the Friday before a holiday (President's Day, the first year ever it was observed on the third Monday in February rather than Feb. 22 and called President's Day rather than Washington's Birthday), and the Friday before Valentine's Day, it's a romantic opera and one that deals with the color red!)

From the point of view of my personal life, it would be interesting if that date is correct.  I proposed to my wife exactly 39 years later, on Feb. 12, 2010.  And we went to Hawaii for our honeymoon!  (Episode 1125 is an opera that takes place in Hawaii).  Also, my wife has a resemblance to Betty Aberlin, who played a major role in that opera!  Also, coincidentally, our engagement party was on April 24, 2010; the 40th anniversary of the first airing of 1125!

Quote
4/5 - 4/9/71: 1166 - 1170 (an opera airing not Easter Friday, but Holy Thursday (and one of the two Thursday operas). However, though Holy Week could be a standard spring break week, that could have been intentional for Reardon's birthday, as they could have easily thought that in 1977, the next time his birthday was a Friday, there wouldn't be any more new episodes).

In that interview that was posted, Betty Aberlin said that they aired some operas on Thursdays so that Jewish kids would be able to watch them if they aired after sundown.  However, this was one of only 2 (and the last) operas that aired on a Thursday.  Maybe they tried Thursday operas, and decided against them in the future.

Reardon's birthday is the most likely scenario.  I don't know about 1977 or 1983, but an opera did air on his birthday in 1988.

Quote
4/23 - 4/27/73: 1306 - 1310 (the week on love, which would later become popular and have some of its episodes go to video, debuted Easter week, which I'm sure was intentional)

Wouldn't Valentines Day have made more sense?

1/16 - 1/20/78: 1036 - 1040 (we know this week was banned)
1/23 - 1/27/78: 1041 - 1045
1/30 - 2/3/78: 1046 - 1050
2/6 - 2/10/78: 1051 - 1055 (we know this week was banned)
2/13 - 2/17/78: 1056 - 1060 (we know this week was banned)

2/20 - 2/24/78: 1061 - 1065
2/27 - 3/3/78: 1066 - 1070
3/6 - 3/10/78: 1071 - 1075 (we know this week was banned)

But we don't know when they were banned.  Remember, a member of the Yahoo board has a friend who remembered seeing at least some of these weeks in 1981.

Quote
3/13 - 3/17/78: 1076 - 1080
3/20 - 3/24/78: 1081 - 1085
3/27 - 3/31/78: 1086 - 1090

Everything up to here is most likely correct, because the Paley Center (formerly the Museum of Television and Radio) lists 1089 as having aired on 4/1/78; presumably on a station that aired episodes from the previous week on weekends.

Quote
4/17 - 4/21/78: 1101 - 1105 (Someone on the yahoo board found there was a special about death the night before this airing, and he's almost positive it's 4/16)

I don't know if that special aired on TV, or if it was just released to VHS tape.  I also don't know if it aired on 4/16/78 or not, but I know it has a 1978 copyright date.

Part 3: 8/27/79 - 8/31/84 (the post-75 era before the confirmed schedules from Hedda)

These are the most mysterious years!

Quote
10/22 - 10/26/79: 1031 - 1035
10/29 - 11/2/79: 1041 - 1045
11/5 - 11/9/79: 1046 - 1050
11/12 - 11/16/79: 1061 - 1065
11/19 - 11/23/79: 1066 - 1070 (someone on the yahoo board remembered the debut of the model pan, which was this week, on Thanksgiving week, so this could fit that person's memory)

But that same person remembers the 4 "banned" weeks airing in 1981, but you don't even have them airing in 1979.

Quote
12/31/79 - 1/4/80: 1101 - 1105 (appropriately, the episode about death would air when kids don't have school, and a lot of people don't have work since some offices are closed the week b between Christmas and New Year's, and for those that don't, it'd mean a broken 4-day weekend otherwise)

I really don't think that New Years Eve, a fun, happy holiday, is the right time to air 1101, an episode about death.

Quote
5/12 - 5/16/80: 1191 - 1195
5/19 - 5/23/80: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (Friday before a holiday, Memorial Day, so therefore probably intentional
5/26 - 5/30/80: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes) This is the first of several post-75 runs airing in backwards order, and they're all part of the Mister Rogers Talks to Parents series, where they'd air that special Sunday night based on the theme of the week, and then the week itself. Starting School and Superheroes are two of those weeks, while Bubbleland is not.

Do we know for sure that the Superheroes episodes actually aired that week, or just the special?  I wonder why they'd air the special on a holiday weekend.

Quote
Such a post-75 run has been known as a MRN Summer.

I don't think these were called MRN summers.  I think the schedule that you showed me was just labeled "MRN Summer 1982 schedule", meaning that it was the schedule for the summer of 1982.

Quote
Then an unconfirmed backwards MRN Summer, since Starting School is confirmed.
8/4 - 8/8/80: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland)
8/11 - 8/15/80: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes)
8/18 - 8/22/80: 1461 - 1465 (Starting School)

That is really just speculating.


Quote
6/1 - 6/5/81: 1481 - 1485 (Competition) (a Mister Rogers Talks to Parents week) (This MRN Summer would feature only non-anual occasion Mister Rogers Talks to Parents weeks)
6/8 - 6/12/81: 1476 - 1480 (Divorce)
6/15 - 6/19/81: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes)
6/22 - 6/26/81: 1436 - 1440
6/29 - 7/3/81: 1441 - 1445
7/6 - 7/10/81: 1446 - 1450
7/13 - 7/17/81: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (The reason why this MRN Summer wouldn't start with the debut is both because it reflects what's confirmed about 1982, as I'll mention when I get there, and it'd avoid a 1455/1456 interruption)
7/20 - 7/24/81: 1486 - 1490 (Play)
7/27 - 7/31/81: 1481 - 1485 (Competition)
8/3 - 8/7/81: 1476 - 1480 (Divorce)
8/10 - 8/14/81: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes)
8/17 - 8/21/81: 1461 - 1470 (Starting School)

8/24 - 8/28/81: 1486 - 1490 (Play) (Yes, only a 5-week interval for this week, but it also reflects 1982 which I'll explain when I get there)

I seriously doubt they would have had 2 "MRN summers" as you call them during the same summer.

Quote
6/21 - 6/25/82: 1486 - 1490 (Play) (the last episode of the previous "season" (Labor Day - Labor Day), not a MRN Summer week, reflects 1981 starting with Windstorm in Bubbleland
6/28 - 7/2/82: 1501 - 1505 (Creativity) (a Mister Rogers Talks to Parents week. And also another opera debuting the Friday before a holiday)
7/5 - 7/9/82: 1491 - 1495 (Discipline)
7/12 - 7/16/82: 1496 - 1500 (Pets) (So therefore, this isn't in its proper position, with the MRN Summer not airing backwards)
7/19 - 7/23/82: 1481 - 1485 (Competition)
7/26 - 7/30/82: 1476 - 1480 (Divorce)
8/2 - 8/6/82: 1466 - 1470 (Superheroes)
8/9 - 8/13/82: 1461 - 1465 (Staring School)
8/16 - 8/20/82: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland)
8/23 - 8/27/82: 1501 - 1505 (Creativity)
(This being the season finale reairing proves Play had to reair in 1981 after its debut. Also, like 1981 (and 1980 according to the theory I had there), this MRN Summer ends the Friday of the weekend before Labor Day)

That schedule that Hedda sent you had a lot of cross-outs, and is likely not accurate.  Also, although it seemed that the parents special about Discipline was (according to the schedule with the cross-outs) scheduled for Sunday, July 4, 1982, it's unlikely it would have aired that day, since PBS stations always air A Capitol Fourth on July 4.  Originally, it seemed Play was scheduled for that week, presumably to avoid a parents special on July 4.  Also, it's not confirmed that Creativity reran in August.

Quote
11/15 - 11/19/82: 1506 - 1510 (Friends) (Why this didn't debut one week so it could debut appropriately Thanksgiving week makes no sense. On the Thursday episode, 1509, it's about loved ones coming together to the castle for a friendship picnic (similar to Thanksgiving dinner). They probably didn't like the idea of Thanksgiving debuts but changed their minds in 1984.

In my opinion, the Thanksgiving debuts in later years made no sense, since kids would be doing other things those weeks, and stations would pre-empt MRN.

Quote
2/14 - 2/18/83: 1321 - 1325

Someone else said that 1315 aired Feb. 18.

Quote
8/20 - 8/24/84: 1461 - 1465 (Starting School)

I thought it aired Aug. 13-17.  You are thinking of 1990.

According to articles and people on the yahoo board, as well as my memory since this was a year I watched, the post-75 run started after this. And according to the articles, it's the one post-75 run with every non-annual occasion week or debut in its proper position.
9/25 - 9/29/89: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (opera the Friday before (and day of starting at sundown) the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah)
10/2 - 10/6/89: 1476 - 1480 (Divorce) (the travel episode would appropriately be the Friday before a holiday)

4/2 - 4/6/90: 1596 - 1600 (Secrets)
4/9 - 4/13/90: 1601 - 1605 (Fun & Games)

4/16 - 4/20/90: 1616 - 1620 (The Environment) (Josephine the Short-Neck Giraffe became an annual occasion week as one of the school weeks in August, which I think doesn't make sense, because just the opera involves a school, that's not enough, in my opinion, to make it a school week. And it airing here would mean an Easter Wednesday - Friday opera. Although the debut then was also appropriate because this is the week before Earth Day, Earth Day was particularly big that year since it was the milestone 20th anniversary, and there was a sweepstakes in which each PBS station was required to air at least one episode on the environment
4/23 - 4/27/90: 1141 - 1145
This ends the episodes not confirmed by Hedda, and every week from here on is bold.

In fact, every pre-79 run after this would run later, which is why these next two weeks are a real mystery, since it's one of the rare airings of a week twice in between Labor Days

9/3 - 9/7/90: 1481 - 1485 (Competition) (Windstorm and Bubbleland and Divorce were moved for mysterious reasons, and in fact they never aired in their proper positions after this when the early post-75s were airing in the fall)

3/25 - 3/29/91: 1601 - 1605 (Fun & Games)

4/15 - 4/19/91: 1621 - 1625 (Fathers & Music) (the first airing of a week twice in the same post-75 run, but since it debuted before Labor Day, that's the reason why)

11/4 - 11/8/91: 1511 - 1515 (Games)
11/11 - 11/15/91: 1521 - 1525 (Conflict) (the week on war airing the week of Veteran's Day!)

12/16 - 12/20/91: 1531 - 1535 (Grandparents) (the Christmas/New Year's opera, though since it's not in its proper position, I don't understand why not one week later, like 1985)
12/23 - 12/27/91: 1546 - 1550 (Music) (Though in its proper position, this did begin a tradition of almost every year, not always in its proper position, having a week on music and the arts airing on the week containing Christmas Day)
12/30/91 - 1/3/92: 1556 - 1560 (Making & Creating)
1/6 - 1/10/92: 1516 - 1520 (Daycare & Night Care)

5/4 - 5/8/92: 1636 - 1640 (Dress-Up)
5/11 - 5/15/92: 1351 - 1355 (as stated back in 1987 - 88, although it's understandable why not 1291, why, when the walls are painted blue in 1326 - 1327, why not 1336 - 1340. Maybe it just had to do with phasing out pre-79s as seen in the pre-79 airings after this)
5/18 - 5/22/92: 1356 - 1360
5/25 - 5/29/92: 1366 - 1370 (1361 - 1365 was moved to the following year, for mysterious reasons, though that could have been about phasing out pre-79s)
6/1 - 6/5/92: 1371 - 1375
6/8 - 6/12/92: 1376 - 1380
6/15 - 6/19/92: 1381 - 1385

6/22 - 6/26/92: 1386 - 1390 (why it didn't last air along with 1376 - 1385 when it's one big story arc is beyond me. And this week had three airings after this on its own
6/29 - 7/3/92: 1421 - 1425 (Some of the earlier 1975 weeks, like 1361 - 1365 were also moved to the following year for a mysterious reason. Though the opera aired Friday before a holiday, and day off for that holiday!)
7/6 - 7/10/92: 1426 - 1430
7/13 - 7/17/92: 1431 - 1435
7/20 - 7/24/92: 1436 - 1440
7/27 - 7/31/92: 1446 - 1450
8/3 - 8/7/92: 1451 - 1455
The post-75 run that follows is very similar to the previous year.
8/10 - 8/14/92: 1461 - 1465 (Starting School) (why one week earlier than 1991 doesn't make sense, however here's a theory -- at that moment, even if not other times, they wanted it to air pledge week, and pledge week could easily have been one week earlier than 1991 since in 1992, the week that follows was the week of one of the Conventions.
8/17 - 8/21/92: 1606 - 1610 (Josephine the Short-Neck Giraffe)
8/24 - 8/28/92: 1651 - 1655 (Learning)
8/31 - 9/4/92: 1481 - 1485 (Competition) (why, even with a late Labor Day, the proper position weeks started then is a mystery. Though they've had Labor Day traditions be one week early in future late Labor Day years. However, this is one of the ways that this similar to the previous year)
9/7 - 9/11/92: 1486 - 1490 (Play)
9/14 - 9/18/92: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (why this week is a mystery, when it it's quite a while before both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and nowhere near any other holiday. However, it is the same week as the previous year and another way in which it's similar)
9/21 - 9/25/92: 1491 - 1495 (Discipline)
9/28 - 10/2/92: 1496 - 1500 (Pets)
10/5 - 10/9/92: 1476 - 1480 (another mystery with the same explanation as 1991, and something else that makes it similar)

11/2 - 11/6/92: 1511 - 1515 (Games)
11/9 - 11/13/92: 1521 - 1525 (Conflict) (and not only similar to 1991, but also like 1991, week of Veteran's Day)
11/16 - 11/20/92: 1526 - 1530 (Work)
11/23 - 11/27/92: 1656 - 1650 (Up & Down)

12/14 - 12/18/92: 1531 - 1535 (Grandparents) (similar crazy mystery as 1991, and other way they're similar)
12/21 - 12/25/92: 1546 - 1550 (like 1991, music and arts week Christmas Day tradition)
12/28/92 - 1/1/93: 1551 - 1555 (Families)
1/4 - 1/8/93: 1516 - 1520: Daycare & Night Care
1/11 - 1/15/93: 1556 - 1560 (Making & Creating) (So unlike 1991 - 92, both the last two non-annual occasion weeks in their proper positions)

3/1 - 3/5/93: 1591 - 1595 (Kindness & Unkindness) (why Nighttime was moved is a mystery)
3/8 - 3/12/93: 1651 - 1655 (Learning) (why this week is a mystery, though here's a theory -- it became a school week, and aired the week of Labor Day starting then, but they wanted to keep the tradition of all post-75 weeks airing once in between Labor Days
3/15 - 3/19/93: 1596 - 1600 (Secrets) (again not knowing whether it's a proper position or annual occasion airing)
3/22 - 3/26/93: 1601 - 1605 (Fun & Games)
3/29 - 4/2/93: 1611 - 1615 (When Parents Go to Work)
4/5 - 4/9/93: 1586 - 1590 (Nighttime) (so this is the mysterious week it moved to. Only theory I can think of is they could have wanted the people from Russian TV show 1589, which was major, to air Holy Thursday, and Fred's 1587 visit to Moscow on Holy Tuesday and Passover
4/12 - 4/16/93: 1621 - 1625 (Fathers & Music)
4/19 - 4/23/93: 1616 - 1620 (The Environment) (it became an annual occasion week for Earth Day)

5/24 - 5/28/93: 1646 - 1650 (Imaginary Friends)
5/31 - 6/4/93: 1361 - 1365 (So this is the week it moved to)
6/7 - 6/11/93: 1386 - 1390 (the first of this mysterious part of story arc week airing on its own. And the first time, except for 1286 - 1290 and 1296 - 1300 in 1985 - 1987, a pre-79 aired, having also aired the year before and/or the year after
6/14 - 6/18/93: 1391 - 1395
6/21 - 6/25/93: 1401 - 1405
6/28 - 7/2/93: 1406 - 1410 (the last time, until there were more than 52 pre-79s, that an episode aired without airing year before and/or the year after, and the last pre-79 to have such an airing)
7/5 - 7/9/93: 1421 - 1425 (ironically the opera one week after a holiday)
7/12 - 7/16/93: 1426 - 1430 (This last airing means it's the only week to air exactly twice (no more, no less) since 1460's last airing
7/19 - 7/23/93: 1431 - 1435
7/26 - 7/30/93: 1436 - 1440

8/30 - 9/3/93: 1666 - 1670 (Then & Now)
9/6 - 9/10/93: 1651 - 1655 (Learning) (as stated after it's March airing, this became one of the school weeks, always airing Labor Day week after the debut
9/13 - 9/17/93: 1481 - 1485 (Competition)
9/20 - 9/24/93: 1486 - 1490 (Play)
9/27 - 10/1/93: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (this week doesn't make sense, since it's after both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and not the Friday before any holiday)

11/1 - 11/5/93: 1501 - 1505 (Creativity) (Why these last two non-annual occasion weeks were switched is beyond me. Maybe to follow the November opera tradition)
11/8 - 11/12/93: 1476 - 1480 (Divorce) (from then on, each time these early weeks aired in the fall, it became a November annual occasion week, probably so that 1480 could air before Thanksgiving)
11/15 - 11/19/93: 1511 - 1515 (Games)
11/22 - 11/26/93: 1536 - 1540 (Food) (So instead of Thanksgiving debuts, this is when Food became an annual occasion week for Thanksgiving, which makes sense, since it deals with thanks after a famine in Northwood, as well as food)
11/29 - 12/3/93: 1521 - 1525 (Conflict)
12/6 - 12/10/93: 1526 - 1530 (Work)

12/20 - 12/24/93: 1531 - 1535 (Grandparents) (of course these two switched because of the Christmas/New Year's opera)
12/27 - 12/31/93: 1546 - 1550 (Music) (the music/arts tradition followed thinking of the first weekday after Christmas)
1/3 - 1/7/94: 1516 - 1520 (Daycare & Night Care)

2/7 - 2/11/94: 1571 - 1575 (Dance)
2/14 - 2/18/94: 1661 - 1665 (Love) (So therefore, it became an annual occasion week for Valentine's Day, though why not the week before is a mystery, since most episodes are aired after Valentine's Day. Although it does happen to always be the week before President's Day
2/21 - 2/25/94: 1671 - 1675 (Things to Wear) (the February debut would always be President's Week, which makes sense since kids are out of school, and therefore always immediately after Love)
2/28 - 3/4/94: 1576 - 1580 (Making Mistakes)
3/7 - 3/11/94: 1581 - 1585 (Alike & Different)
3/14 - 3/18/94: 1596 - 1600 (Secrets) (Since this is its first out of proper position airing, this, at the latest, is when it became an annual occasion week)

3/28 - 4/1/94: 1591 - 1595 (Kindness & Unkindness)

4/11 - 4/15/94: 1611 - 1615 (When Parents Go to Work)
4/18 - 4/22/94: 1616 - 1620 (An annual occasion week in its proper position! And unlike Secrets in 1991 - 1993, we know it was an annual occasion week, since it had an out of proper position airing at its annual occasion time!)
4/25 - 4/29/94: 1621 - 1625 (Fathers & Music)
5/2 - 5/6/94: 1626 - 1630 (Mouths & Feelings)

5/23 - 5/27/94: 1641 - 1645 (Art)
5/30 - 6/3/94: 1646 - 1650 (Imaginary Friends)
6/6 - 6/10/94: 1651 - 1655 (Learning) (though it was an annual occasion week, it's airing in its proper position, and breaking the Labor Day rule. My guess as to why is because of phasing out the pre-79s)
6/13 - 6/17/94: 1656 - 1660 (Up & Down)
6/20 - 6/24/94: 1666 - 1670 (Then & Now)
6/27 - 7/1/94: 1671 - 1675 (Things to Wear) (so therefore for the first a post-Labor Day debut is airing in its proper position, and again the reason why is most likely to phase out the pre-79s)
7/4 - 7/8/94: 1386 - 1390 (the second of three times it's mysteriously airing without 1376 - 1385 which is one story arc)
At this point, every pre-79 is a last airing
7/11 - 7/15/94: 1431 - 1435
7/18 - 7/22/94: 1421 - 1425 (the reason for these two out of order is probably because in order they can't air them in order without 1426 - 1430, and they couldn't air that week as they were cutting down on pre-79s
After this, until June 30, 1995 you'll notice that except for debuts, it was exactly like one year before
7/25 - 7/29/94: 1436 - 1440
8/1 - 8/5/94: 1446 - 1450

9/26 - 9/30/94: 1471 - 1475 (Windstorm in Bubbleland) (again after both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and not the Friday before any holiday. But again, it's part of what makes it exactly like the year before)
