I am quite sure that all the episodes of this masterpiece have been transferred to a digital medium so they will never further degrade.
To those who are the keepers of those 1's and 0's, thank you for your work.
I love this show.. (present tense) I am nearly 40, but if I come across it, I will watch it. As a child, this was my chaser to Sesame Street. I can remember vividly watching it for the final time of the day, before bed, and I was crying. I didn't want him to leave.
As an adult, when I catch the intro, I am still OCD to enough to root for him to finish his wardrobe change (sweater/tennies) before he concludes his song lyrics (Please won't you be my neighbor) Gotta have something to do I guess.
Thanks for making my neighborhood a little more special Mr. Rogers.
