Our Neighbor, Fred Rogers (1990)

Beginning on March 5, 1990, PBS stations across the country aired Our Neighbor, Fred Rogers -- a celebration of Fred Rogers' 35 years in public television service -- as part of their annual pledge drives. The documentary features archival footage and interviews spanning Fred's influential career. Coming in at just under an hour in length, Our Neighbor, Fred Rogers was produced by Pittsburgh filmmaker Rick Sebak and narrated by David Hartman.

Much of the footage used in this documentary went on to be used in a similar 2003 film -- Fred Rogers: America's Favorite Neighbor -- narrated by Michael Keaton.


This special was re-aired following the death of Fred Rogers in 2003.
