  • Finally, a calm show for kids

    10
    One of the major distinctions I see between Mr. Rogers and new kids shows is the slow pacing. Every episode, Mr. Rogers calmly walks into his house, changes his shoes and removes his coat, puts on a comfy sweater, and talks to the TV audience. He asks how they are, and pauses for a response. There's no trickery to keeping a kid's attention. Just interesting visits to factories, zoos, and with famous people (which dates the show, I'm afraid). And beyond that, he teaches morals and values in a non-heavy-handed way. Thank goodness there are so many reruns to watch.
