  • The First Week (#5) The end of the first week (Black & White, 1967)
    In these early episodes we see that as producer, writer, lyricist and star, Fred Rogers envisioned his Neighborhood programs as a half an hour when he would come to visit with and play with his viewers - to talk directly with them, encourage their creativity, teach them new words and ideas, help them name and talk about their feelings, and to care about them. In a time of appointment television these historic episodes feature a delightful, joyful 39-year old Fred Rogers as he was introducing himself to America's children. Includes the songs "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" and "Goodnight God".moreless
