    Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

    Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

    Follow
    PBS (ended 2001)
    "In a little toy neighborhood, a tiny trolley rolls past a house at the end of a street. Welcome toMister Rogers' Neighborhood." In the annals of children's TV, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood ranks among the longest-lasting and beloved shows. Upon its conclusion, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood was the longest-running series in PBS history (a record eclipsed by Sesame Street in 2003). Host Fred Rogers (known to millions as simply "Mister Rogers") used his gentle charm and mannerisms to communicate with his audience of children. Topics centered on nearly every inconceivable matter of concern to children, ranging from everyday fears related to going to sleep, getting immunizations and disappointment about not getting one's way to losing a loved one to death and physical handicaps. Rogers used simple songs and, on nearly every show, segments from the Neighborhood of Make-Believe (NOM) to make his point. A scale-model trolley was often (but not always) used to segue into the Make-Believe segments, said neighborhood being inhabited by puppet characters including King Friday XIII, Lady Elaine Fairchild and Daniel Striped Tiger. Many shows also featured visits from cast members – most often Mr. McFeely (tagline: "Speedy Delivery"), Robert Trow, Joe Negri and Chef Brockett (the local baker). Many times, Rogers also visited the neighborhood shops of both the regulars and guests. Each show began and ended with a camera panning over a scale neighborhood (said to represent the town where Rogers lived). Production History While today's longer-running PBS Kids shows reinvent themselves every five years, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood achieved, throughout its 31 seasons, that rarest of elements: consistency. It is a legacy that can all be traced through every aspect of Fred Rogers' television career. Some of the characters in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, both real and imagined, had appeared in two of Fred Rogers' earlier programs, The Children's Corner for Pittsburgh's WQED in 1954 and the CBC's Misterogers in 1963. It was for Misterogers that Fred first appeared on-camera. Rogers returned to WQED in Pittsburgh to begin writing and hosting Mister Rogers' Neighborhood May 22, 1967. Several other public television stations from Chicago to Boston carried the show on a trial basis that year. Beginning February 19, 1968, the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood program that we know today, began airing nationwide on National Educational Television (NET), the predecessor to PBS. This was also the year David Newell, returned from Europe, began work for Rogers. He was in charge of the production as well as the neighborhood's Speedy Delivery service. (AN ASIDE: Rogers wanted to call the delivery man Mr. McCurdy after the man at the Sears-Roebuck Foundation, whose support launched Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. But the people at Sears-Roebuck called Rogers and said "Mr. McCurdy" was too self-serving. Thus Rogers went to his roots to rename Newell's deliveryman. "McFeely" was Rogers' middle name and the last name of his maternal grandfather.) Shows were produced as a daily strip from 1968 to 1976, at which time production was suspended. Counting black-and-white episodes, 590 shows were produced in that span. Production resumed at the beginning of the remote video age in 1979. Rogers went on location more, supervising videos of how people make things (a precursor to the TVO series Here's How!). Other characters would be introduced in the subsequent two decades. In all, 305 new programs were taped from 1979 through 2001. Of that volume, the most notable shows came in 1991, with Rogers focusing on calming children's fears during the first U.S. war with Iraq. PBS gradually narrowed the window for the 460 "pre-79" episodes with each new season from 1980 onward. When the number of "post-75" episodes was enough to cover entire years, the classic shows were retired, last airing on PBS in the summer of 1995. Despite the production stoppage and the subsequent passing of Fred Rogers on February 27, 2003, PBS continues to repeat Mister Roger's Neighborhood in all its original glory–an accomplishment unique among all PBS Kids shows.moreless

    In this spin-off from the popular sitcom The Cosby Show, Denise Huxtable enters her sophomore year at Hillman, alma mater of her parents and grandfather, where she moves into Gilbert Hall and shares a dorm room with 26-year-old Jaleesa Vinson and talkative new roommate Maggie Lauten. Also included in the first season cast were obnoxious and extremely wealthy dormmate Whitley Gilbert, ladies' man Dwayne Wayne and dorm director Stevie Rallen. Lettie Bostic later replaced Stevie as the new dorm director. At the end of the first season, Denise would return home (and to The Cosby Show) after dropping out of college. In the fall of 1988, new students Freddie Brooks and Kim Reese entered Hillman College. Freddie was a "hippie-child" who developed a crush on Dwayne; and Kim, an aspiring med student, became Whitley's new roommate. Giving Dwayne a hard time was his math professor, Col. Bradford Taylor. Also, Ron Johnson and Walter Oakes became regulars in the second season after appearing occasionally during the first season. Vernon Gaines, chef at the campus hangout, The Pit, became a regular in the third season. Whitley and Dwayne began an on-again off-again relationship before they became married at the end of the fifth season. Stories dealt mainly with college-themed issues such as racism, fraternity pledging and on-campus romances.

    Adult Swim (ended 2008)
    Moral Orel is a TV-MA clay-mation series on Cartoon Network's [adult swim] segment, which centres around the life of Orel Puppington, a young boy who consistently fails in his attempts to understand and abide by Protestant Christian values.

    Orel takes his cues from the authority figures around him; his parents Clay and Bloberta, school coach Stopframe, Reverend Putty, and others. Unfortunately for Orel, he always misunderstands the actions of his mentors, who are mostly shown as bitter, jaded, and merely paying lip service to their religious beliefs.

    These misunderstandings often lead to circumstances where Orel believes that he's following the Lord's wishes by doing things such as smoking crack, re-animating the bodies of dead townsfolk, practising euthanasia, or even impregnating sleeping women with a sperm-filled pastry bag. At the end of each episode, Orel's misbehaviour is discovered and he is taken to his father's study for a beating and a twisted explaination one might not expect from a responsible adult.


    Season 2
    The second season episodes of Moral Orel somewhat eradicated the repeated narrative structure seen in Season 1 episodes, which dramatically changed the way the stories unfold; creating a fresh new approach. The majority of episodes 11-30 focus primarily on other townsfolk and their relationship with Orel, whilst still creating twisted situations. The stop-motion animation improves enormously with the Season 2 episodes; creating a richer quality in picture, with more detail. New locations and townsfolk are also introduced and expanded upon.

    Season 3
    The third and final season took the show to the next level. These episodes revolve around events leading to and following the Season 2 finale, which proved to be the series' turning point. These episodes also incorporate elements of other episodes from the past two seasons, mainly from the viewpoints of other characters, ultimately tying the entire series together and wrapping it up nicely.


    Overview & History
    Although the show slightly resembles the visual animation of the 1960s series Davey and Goliath, Dino Stamatopoulos, creator of Moral Orel, has said that it is not a parody, stating that "there's no getting around that it's religious, but the word parody to a comedian is a dirty word, because one has to know what the show is parodying to like it."

    The show originally stemmed from the concept for a send-up of a Leave It to Beaver-like 1950s family comedy, that would star Iggy Pop. The idea eventually grew and evolved into a cartoon.

    "It's an incredibly tightly written show, with probably the strongest narrative structure of anything we have on the network."
    - Nick Weidenfeld (Head of Development at Adult Swim)



    Production Companies:
    Fragical Productions
    Williams Street

    The name of Dino Stamatopoulos' production company "Fragical Productions" came from a song his daughter wrote about him being "fragical." The animation sequence for the company was animated by Dino himself and uses a fairy (magical) in a wheel-chair (fragile); making up the company's name. The "hello-goodbye" heard is said by his daughter, Tigger, and is a saying that she created.moreless

The Zabvronians have been waiting for instructions from back home for the past 10 years and this is their first encounter having humans live amongst them. Although hesitant at first, the Weavers decide the house is a dream come true so they'll stay and help the aliens adapt to life on earth.
