Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Fred Rogers’s safe harbor for children that began on TV in 1968, is a memory. This PBS staple stopped being produced when Rogers, a Presbyterian minister, a songwriter, and an inductee into the Television Hall of Fame, died of cancer in 2003. Much loved for his no-frills, visually bare-bones, comforting set, settings, and characters, he became symbolic of the world as we all would have liked it to be (especially for our children). I found this “remix” of a Mister Rogers mantra (“Garden of Your Mind”) produced by Symphony of Science’s John D. Boswell for PBS Digital Studios.
