It's a lovely day in Mr. Rogers' neighborhood.

Take all the elements that make for good television, do the exact opposite, and you might have something like Mister Rogers Neighborhood, says a producer of the beloved series in this new trailer for the upcoming doc Won't You Be My Neighbor? What makes the documentary work so well is that it tries to get an understanding of Rogers, his morality, his legacy, and his place in American history. The movie features interviews with various crew and cast members from the show who exalt Rogers for being the reason the show tackled so many subjects others felt far too taboo for a children's show. "Low production values, simple set, an unlikely star, yet it worked". "I know everyone says this, but he was radical". Rogers took that idea to heart, and the love he had for his viewers was demonstrated in every episode. "I believe Mister Rogers is the kind of voice we need to hear right now", said Neville.

It certainly seems that with today's current political climate and social media obsessed world, viewers are eager for a few more handsome days in the neighborhood.

Rogers was an ordained minister who didn't plan on a career in television before deciding that kids needed more uplifting programming.

In the following clip from the movie, Rogers shares his belief that "love is at the root of everything". Not only is it the 90th anniversary of the birth of the man himself, but in February, the 50th anniversary of the nationwide debut of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood on PBS was celebrated, including with the It's You I Like special on that network.
