Fred Rogers used puppets and play to explore complex social issues: race, disability, equality and tragedy, helping form the American concept of childhood. He spoke directly to children and they responded enthusiastically. Yet today, his impact is unclear. Have we lived up to Fred's ideal of good neighbors?
A heart-warming documentary about an earlier time in TV viewing. Not a rehash of children's show but a thoughtful look behind the program and the process and planning that went into creating a space to teach all of us life lessons.
