Google is paying tribute to Fred Rogers Friday, 51 years to the day since the Pittsburgh native taped the first episode of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood."
Rogers is being celebrated on Google’s homepage, with the search engine’s Google Doodle portraying him.
It’s a beautiful day in this Neighborhood! Today’s #GoogleDoodle celebrates #MisterRogers, who taught children & adults across the US the power of love, kindness, acceptance, & a good sweater. 😊→ https://t.co/dcJS1Vr5tq pic.twitter.com/NMxxe6me45— Google Doodles (@GoogleDoodles) September 21, 2018
Mister Rogers' Neighborhood was made available for national distribution in 1968.
A movie based on the life of Rogers will start production in the Pittsburgh region in the fall. Tom Hanks will play Rogers in “You Are My Friend.”
For 31 seasons & 912 episodes, #MisterRogers invited us to be his neighbor. Today, we celebrate his positive impact & all that he was: a creator, musician, philosopher, storyteller - but most importantly, a friend. #GoogleDoodle → https://t.co/dcJS1V9uBS pic.twitter.com/knARWmhhrG— Google Doodles (@GoogleDoodles) September 21, 2018
