Sadhvi Sez: Mister Rogers and the Garden of your Mind

SADHVI

I don’t remember watching Mister Rogers when I was a kid, probably because I was not a kid when he came out in ’68!  But having a younger brother who watched Sesame Street, I was aware of seeing and hearing his voice.  I always thought he was kind of strange; his voice was too nice, the kind of voice that I didn’t trust. 

It turns out that he was just being himself, and since he was on TV for such a long time (1968-2001) influencing a lot of kids, there must have been some magic in him!

He is no longer with us, but lives on thanks to a great remix for PBS.  And now, Mister Rogers has gone viral! 

  • The video has been viewed on YouTube more than 4 million times.  Last weekend it was the #1
  • On the PBS Facebook page, the video has been shared more than 3,400 times, has earned more than 2,000 likes and generated more than 160 comments.
  • Celebrities including Neil Patrick Harris, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Alyssa Milano, Morgan Spurlock and Guy Kawasaki have shared the video with their many Twitter followers.

I really liked it. Enjoy.
