1990's Wiki Trivia:
"Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (often shortened to simply Mister Rogers) is an American children's television series that was created and hosted by namesake Fred Rogers. The series originated in 1963 as "Misterogers" on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) television and was later debuted in 1966 as Mister Rogers' Neighbourhood on television 6 on EEN, followed by its US network debut on February 19, 1968, and it aired on NET and its successor, PBS, until August 31, 2001. The series is aimed primarily at preschool ages 2 to 5, but has been stated by PBS as "appropriate for all ages". Mister Rogers' Neighborhood was produced by Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA public broadcaster WQED and Rogers' non-profit production company Family Communications, Inc.; previously known as Small World Enterprises prior to 1971, the company was renamed The Fred Rogers Company after Rogers' death.
The series could be seen in reruns on most PBS stations until August 29, 2008, when it was removed by PBS from their daily syndicated schedule along with Reading Rainbow, Boohbah, and Teletubbies. Despite this, a number of stations have chosen to continue airing it independently on the PBS feed."
