I was very sad to hear that PBS will not be showing Mr. Rogers anymore. As a kid, I loved Mr. Rogers. My mother also loved it claiming it "chilled me out."
As a tribute, I've posted the best episode ever Mr. Rogers Goes to the Restaurant which features my late Grandmother Maribel Shearer in a cameo drinking a cup of coffee. She was so excited that she was asked to be in this episode filmed at the Hotel Saxonburg and even got us Fred's autograph!
