It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, kids. On Monday, at noon California time, Twitch will start a marathon airing of Mister Roger’s Neighborhood, streaming all 886 episodes of the classic children’s TV show. If you have 17 free days, you can watch the marathon from start to finish. During this time, Twitch will also be running a fundraiser for PBS, which faces stiff funding cuts if “He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named” has his way.
Enjoy the epic broadcast, and don’t miss some classic Mister Rogers scenes in the Relateds below.
PBS has more information on the Twitch-PBS partnership here.

This sounds very interesting!
I hope the fund-raising is successful and that PBS’s government subsidies disappear.
People should have the Right to Choose — where their money goes.

Not available in NYC or at least not on RCN my cable carrier. I have many VCR tapes of the show for my son, but not all. Aside from a select few episodes available from Family Communications, I don’t know of any way to get them all. I know Mr. Rogers was not interested in commercializing his show, unlike Sesame Street. Do you know of any way to obtain all 866 episodes. VCR tapes break so I would assume any collection would be on DVDS. Thank you.
