Premise: Every kid wanted to be Mister Rogers' neighbor. Fred Rogers hosts this gentle, thoughtful children's show, and he treats kids like intelligent people who deserve programming just as good as that for adults. From the moment he changes into his cardigan and sneakers, youngsters are enthralled. Add in the puppets and marionettes from the Land of Make Believe, and you've got a children's classic.
