Did you all watch Mister Rogers Neighborhood as a child? If so, it’s time for a trip down memory lane, and if not, now’s the time to check it out.
The show aired from 1968 to 2001, which amounts to a total of 886 episodes. At just under 30 minutes a pop, that’s 18 days worth of viewing…and it’s all live on twitch. Starting yesterday and continuing for the coming 17 days you can pop in at any time for your Mr Rogers fix. As it turns out, this marathon isn’t simply a nostalgia-fest but a very worthwhile PBS fundraiser, encouraging people to contribute money to public television, which is much in need.
There’s also a Mr Rogers-style Twitch cardigan giveaway involved, and I really want one.
Mister Rogers was awesome, he taught us about the world around us as well as how to make believe. Though He passed away in 2003, he lives on in or hearts and our memories…and now, for a limited time on Twitch.
