Google Celebrates Anniversary Of 1st Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Taping

Mister Rogers speaks with an audience member

"I'm so thrilled that Google is celebrating Fred and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood with this charming tribute", Rogers' wife Joanne said in a statement, per Forbes.

Friday marks the 51st anniversary of the filming of the first episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (which actually didn't begin airing until a year later 1968).

Rogers profoundly understood the power of his medium, saying, "Through television we have a great chance to show and tell our children that they really matter".

The Google Doodle transforms the iconic opening theme into a delightful xylophone lullaby, in this stop-motion animated clip that reimagines the show's opening sequence.

Mister Rogers certainly has had his share of honors lately, but maybe none as great as being Google Doodled.

Rogers' career in children's TV programming began in 1954 as a puppeteer on The Children's Corner, a live afternoon TV show that laid the groundwork for numerous characters he would use in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, including Daniel Tiger and X the Owl.

The Doodle ends with Rogers teaching one such lesson: "You help to make each day a special day by just your being yourself".

"Through his honest words, thoughtful songs, and imaginative Neighborhood of Make-Believe stories, Mister Rogers took us by the hand, helping us feel good about who we are". "There's nobody else in the whole world who's exactly like you".

You can catch Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood on PBS Kids (check your local listings); Would You Be My Neighbor documentary is now available for streaming or home video.
