Actually, in the few hours since this was submitted, the video has went from 400,000+ views to nearly 700,000.

Nobody can hate Mister Rogers. And if you do, what is your malfunction?

I loved the lifetime Emmy video.

The song is awesome too.

Is it wrong that I teared up watching this?

Is it so wrong to resolve the last chord? I was left wanting the tonic.

I probably contributed about 300 of those hits. Just can't stop listening to it. It's so beautiful and... promising. And soothing. The world we live in is so cutthroat and busy and fast. That video shows that there's still innocence and kindness. Even with him gone it still exists.

Never thought I'd say this, but some of the comments on youtube are so touching and heart warming. The one guy who was having a rough go at college and started watching Mr. Rogers, and it got him through it. That's amazing stuff.

I always liked the show growing up, but it's now as an adult that I can really understand just how valuable it is/was.

I really like it. Mr Rogers was my bud growing up.

Watching this video makes me sad that my daughter won't get the Mr. Rogers experience like I did growing up.

sure haven't

I have listened to it about 8 times. It is great. And I agree...I was listening to the lyrics and realized yesterday that Mr. Rogers was much more of a great influence on me that I previously knew. Great role model indeed.

off to listen to it again.

That was awesome. John Boswell has really done some amazing stuff. For those of you who haven't seen it (this is Fark, who am I kidding?), you really should check out Glorious Dawn(pops).

Word is they are doing a reboot of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, for what THAT'S worth.
 
2012-06-08 10:53:02 AM
Yeah, I kinda teared up a bit in my office.

I agree that the show and Mr. Rogers gave you a promising feel about life. It wasn't some live of blind naivete about how ugly the world is, but that there is some beauty in it, and to find the beauty.

Not quite.

Last I remember hearing about anything like that, it was just Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, which is supposed to be an animated show.

They should just rerun the ones they have.

The only reason MRN isn't in 24 hour rotation is because it doesn't have the latest stupid "educational" fads on it...
 
2012-06-08 11:04:24 AM
I always tear up hearing Fred Rogers speak. It is just absurd to me that someone so good existed on this Earth, and people didn't immediately and completely stop hurting each other and just realize how good and wonderful this world is, or can be.

//He's like Jesus, only real.
 
2012-06-08 11:05:03 AM
Watched it last night when it had 14,000 views...as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be a biggie. Went to share on FB and noticed ten others had shared the same thing.

Unlike most videos, this one is worthy of being viral.

But I guess not real enough to cure you of your bitterness.

Coming in here and throwing a sad little jab like that is the exact opposite of anything Mr. Rogers would do or approve of. Good job, jackass.

I definitely teared up watching this. It's so rare that you see someone in the public eye who is generally a nice guy. Im sure people tried to smear him at certain points, but there's nothing wrong with Mister Rogers. Nothing

I met David Newell, who played "Mr. McFeely", and he confirmed that Fred Rogers was the real deal, a genuinely nice guy who cared about everyone around him. My childhood wouldn't have been the same without Mr. Rogers.
 
2012-06-08 12:11:10 PM
I've never heard a bad thing from anyone who knew Fred Rogers personally.
Everyone says he was the nicest, kindest person they knew.

It's wonderful that people like Mr. Rogers existed in our lifetime. Really, just the epitome of what a "True Christian" should be. Kind, generous, meek, caring, modest.

He's our modern-day St. Francis.

No miracles. Nothing supernatural. Just a real kindhearted loving person trying to make the world a better place.

After watching the video I went to Mr. Rogers' wikipedia page and learned something.
Mr. Rogers' full name is Fred McFeely Rogers!

This video kicked up a lot of dust in my house.

Ya, way to wreck the homage you had going.
I think Mr. Rogers wouldn't like you.

To quote Homer (about Flanders) "if everyone was like him, we wouldn't need a heaven, we'd already be there."

I love Mr. Rogers and have many fond memories of him and his castmates, but I just can't do auto-tune. :/

Impossible. Mr. Rogers liked everyone. He would just politely ask him to take a seat and then start a conversation with, "You know, the world really is an amazing place. There are just so many people with so many beliefs that one could spend an entire lifetime just trying to meet them all. You seem like a very interesting person that has beliefs that you care about very much, and I would love to learn more about them. Won't you be my neighbor?" Then they would go watch Bob Ross paint a happy squirrel while sipping on some fresh squeezed lemonaid.

Mr. Rogers never found it necessary to threaten anyone with a mythological place of torture and punishment. For him, being good and kind was important for its own sake. He needed no golden chalice, nor a car with bullet-proof glass. The very seed he would have you plant in your mind are the ones the Church seeks to stamp out, via intimidation. Mr. Rogers required no worship. He earned it.

Jesus could indeed take a lesson or three from Mr Rogers.

Watched this last night with my two-year-old son and he was mesmerized. I think there are some Mr. Rogers DVD out there -- will have to track them down.

Mr. Rogers was an ordained Presbyterian minister. He was quite devout.
He just knew that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Rather than calling people sinners, he taught by telling people how special they were, how much they were loved and essentially, that God loved them, but knowing that an overt religious message might make people tune out, he avoided it. He didn't need to mention God or the Bible in order to teach children to BE better people.

Teaching things like kindness, courtesy, respect, curiosity, tolerance.

I don't know that Jesus could have learned something from Fred Rogers, but Jesus can sometimes be a difficult example to emulate. That was a long time ago, a different world and mindset, and we don't have supernatural powers like Jesus did.

But Fred Rogers is an excellent example of how we can be better Christians in THIS society, in THIS day and age. Or hell, better PEOPLE, regardless of religion.

Holy shiat. Just when I thought The Fox News douchebags couldn't get any worse, I see this. "This evil, evil man has now ruined a generation of kids"

What you don't see, of course, is the extended lead-in to that segment when they were making fun of the study. Or, apparently, the parts in the actual video where they're making fun of the study.

Even in the parts shown, you missed all of the laughter by the hosts, all the way through the segment. One of them was pretending to back the study, but the others were NOT saying that. The whole segment was extremely tongue in cheek.

I mean, really. You either didn't watch the segment, or your ability to hear sarcasm is nearly nonexistent.

This was one of their normal "silly-yet-controversial study" segments they put up each morning to get people to send emails. Mostly from people like you.

I wholeheartedly agree.
I guess his heroes are my heroes.
And as simple as this is to put together, it's the beauty of capturing who the person was, and what they had to share with the world. The distillation is masterful, and melodic. And by choosing Mr. Rogers amongst his other choices of people to autotune, to me is unifying that sense of wonder about us from forth which all questions sprang. The birth of science came from wonder and appreciation and imagination and a desire to know, and grow.
That's imagination, that's science, that's art, and that's love.
Bravo.

I wasn't a Mr. Rogers kid growing up (Soupy Sales got me.) As an adult, my love and admiration for him is boundless. He's America's Dalai Lama.

I swear I can't stop listening to this. I already downloaded the video from Youtube and now the mp3 is on my player and I'm just hitting repeat. I don't normally like autotune but this is amazing, and he was amazing. I wish the show was on DVD.
 
2012-06-08 08:25:31 PM
They should do a Bob Ross remix next.
