Broadcast history

The first broadcast of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood was on the National Educational Television network on February 19, 1968; the color NET logo appeared on a model building at the beginning and end of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood from 1969 to 1970. When NET ceased broadcasting, the series moved to PBS, even though episodes as late at 1971 were still copyrighted to – and produced for – NET.[8]
.The former NET model house was "remodeled", first to a small yellow-orange sided house, and then into a red apartment building.^ Clinton arrived at the house of former Providence mayor Joseph R. Paolino Jr. East Side.

Characters

Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Characters on the series include: Mr. McFeely (David Newell) the delivery man, who was named for Fred Rogers' maternal grandfather, Fred McFeely[10]; Neighbor Aber (Chuck Aber); Lady Aberlin (Betty Aberlin); Marilyn Barnett; Chef Brockett (Don Brockett); Tony Chiroldes; Jose Cisneros; Officer Clemmons (François Clemmons); Keith David; Mrs. McFeely (Betsy Nadas); Handyman Negri (Joe Negri); Sergio Pinto; John Reardon; Audrey Roth; Maggie Stewart; Bob Trow; and in early episodes Emily the Poetry Lady (Emily Jacobson). Other regular puppeteers included Michael Horton, Lenny Meledandri (1980–2001), and Carole Switala. Music directors for the series included Johnny Costa (1968–1996), and Michael Moricz, who took over as music director after Costa's death and served until the end of the series in 2001. Musicians who played the background music along with Johnny Costa for Mr Roger's Neighborhood included Carl McVicker Jr. – Bass and Bobby Rawsthorne – Drums.

The human characters who appeared in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe were mostly imaginary versions of people who lived in Mr. Rogers' "real" neighborhood. For example, Joe "Handyman" Negri, a respected Pittsburgh jazz guitarist, was a music shop proprietor on Rogers' street. .The non-make-believe version of Betty Aberlin was an actress.^ If not, make sure you complete the non-residence version.

.Audrey Roth operated a janitorial service in the real neighborhood, but was royal phone operator "Miss Paulificate" in Make-Believe.^ Once there was going to be a game of some sorts in The Neighborhood Of Make Believe.

Only Mr. McFeely, Mrs. McFeely, and Chef Brockett appeared substantially the same way in both Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.

Neighborhood of Make-Believe

Here is a list of the puppet and costumed characters appearing in the "Neighborhood of Make-Believe" segment:
.Thirteen in-series "operas" took place during the course of the series within the Make-Believe segments.^ Obama, who campaigned under the slogan "Change We Can Believe In," is serious about making fundamental changes to U.S. foreign policy, including its relations with Russia.

[10] Many of them feature American baritone John Reardon as a main character. These operas, and the year of their first airing are:
  • Babysitter Opera (1968)
  • Campsite Opera (1968)
  • Teddy Bear / Whaling Ship Opera (1969)
  • "Pineapples and Tomatoes" (1970)
  • "Monkey's Uncle" (1971)
  • "Snow People and Warm Pussycat" (1972)
  • "Potato Bugs and Cows" (1973)
  • "All in the Laundry" (1974)
  • "Key to Otherland" (1975)
  • "Windstorm in Bubbleland" (1980)
  • "Spoon Mountain" (1982)
  • "A Granddad for Daniel" (1984)
  • "A Star for Kitty" (1986)
  • "Josephine the Short-Necked Giraffe" (1989)
.Of those 13 operas, only the last 4 still air; the others had their last airings during the 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s.^ And to think, all we have to do is switch on the set where the shows still air, and those kinds of nuggets and a whole world view are waiting!
