The video is set to the timeless Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood theme song, but instead of changing his shoes in his living room, Rogers is walking around the neighborhood, interacting with children and spreading his message of positivity. Sharp-eyed fans will notice references to the show’s iconic moments and figures, like his pet fish, Mr. McFeely, and the time he and Officer Clemmons, an black man, soaked their feet in a pool together, which was controversial when the segment aired in the ’60s.
A lot of love clearly also went into the making of this short. Every element was treated with attention and care, which was really the only way Rogers did anything.
