|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
50 Greatest TV Stars of All Time
PUBLICATION: TV Guide
For almost 30 years now, Fred Rogers -- that's Mister Rogers to you -- has entered his house and performed the same ritual: shedding the garments of the outside world, covered, as they are, with the soot of worry, fear, and other harsh realities. In their place, he puts on a well-worn cardigan and those comfy sneakers...and we slip into them, too. The soothing star of PBS's Mister Rogers' Neighborhood makes us, young and old alike, feel safe, cared for, and valued, while he teaches us about what's good, and gives us support in handling all the bad that takes place beyond his door. Nothing fancy, no hyperkinetic cartoons, no pressure on us to achieve amazing feats. His simple home might not be a wacky playhouse, and the puppets might sound remarkably like him, but wherever Mister Rogers is, so is sanctuary.
