    I never liked Mr. Rogers’ show as a child – I didn’t “get” the imaginary world thing, and the trolley… But my children liked him, and I liked his effect on them. The days they watched Mr. Rogers, they played quietly for a long time, doing crafts or whatever. I recorded several episodes onto DVD, but the older children have lost interest, and the younger ones are stuck on VeggieTales.

      Thank you for reading and commenting. I liked the show as a child. I think the creation of so many noisy and attractive cartoons and newer type shows in the late 80’s and early 90’s sealed the coffin for shows like this. And every time I think that I can’t help but think maybe that’s part of our problem. My kids wouldn’t watch it at this point, either. Why eat vegetables when you can have Cheetos? Thanks again, Shari.
