Mister Rogers Remixed, Autotuned: VIDEO


"Did you ever grow anything in the garden of your mind?"

PBS Digital Studios grew an idea for a remix:

When we discovered video mash-up artist John D. Boswell, aka melodysheep, on YouTube, we immediately wanted to work together. Turns out that he is a huge Mister Rogers Neighborhood fan, and was thrilled at the chance to pay tribute to one of our heroes. Both PBS and the Fred Rogers Company hope you like John's celebration of Fred Rogers' message.


In related news, did you ever see the video of Fred Rogers single-handedly convincing Congress not to cut funding for PBS? It's a must-watch.

  6. Rogers got labeled the original neighborhood pervert. Fodder for many a Johnny Carson monologue.
