Watch a Marathon Streaming of All 856 Episodes of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, and the Moving Trailer for the New Documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?




The bombast, arrogance and bloviation–maybe you need a break from it all. You may need exactly the opposite–a little Fred Rogers. If so, we’ve got two things for you. First, head over to Twitch.TV where they’re currently livestreaming all 856 episodes of Mister Rogers Neighborhood (for a limited time). It’s a grand way of celebrating what would have been Fred’s 90th birthday this week. And then, above, watch the brand new trailer for Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, the upcoming documentary by Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom). Due out in June, the film “takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.” As you watch the trailer, you’ll be reminded that Rogers worked his magic during other periods of chaos and discontent, and how sorely his calming presence is missing today.
