Friday marks the 51st anniversary of the filming of the first episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (which actually didn't begin airing until a year later 1968).

Fittingly, Google notes how music was Fred Rogers' first love; the Latrobe, Pennsylvania, native studied music composition at Rollins College and would go on to compose more than 200 songs and a dozen children's operas.

Google collaborated with Fred Rogers Productions, The Fred Rogers Center, and BixPix Entertainment on the almost 2-minute video.

"I'm so thrilled that Google is celebrating Fred and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood with this charming tribute", Rogers' wife Joanne said in a statement, per Forbes.

Rogers used the show as a vehicle to bring joy and teach important life lessons to millions of children.

In the Xinhua interview , Ma said Alibaba "will not stop promoting the healthy development of China-US trade". " Trade should be the propeller of peace ".


Through the magic of a fairly nascent technology called television, he took preschool-age children on factory tours, met with people in the neighborhood to talk about their jobs, and even visited the set of the TV show The Incredible Hulk (disclosure: The Hulk appeared on CBS, which owns CNET).

If you are someone who grew up on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood as a kid, this image will be a fond reminder. Through the video, Mister Rogers sings his favorite tune, "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" before ending with a familiar message.

Rogers also continues to be honored by the television and film industry for his award-winning show.

You can catch Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood on PBS Kids (check your local listings); Would You Be My Neighbor documentary is now available for streaming or home video.
