The first program

The first episode of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, at that time spelled as one word, Misterogers, includes many of the same elements millions of people came to know about Mister Rogers, and some that are different as the program evolved. There is his care and understanding of children, his ability to help us see the world as children do and the playful twinkle in his eye. Mister Rogers enters in his coat and changes into his sweater, shows his viewers around his house in “this very special studio of ours,” and sends the Trolley into the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.
