    Yes, yes, you read that right. Sad but true, the Public Broadcasting Service, better known as PBS, has decided to cut Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

    Even though this past yr Mr Rogers was only at 7:30am and my Nephews hardly if ever got to watch it at this time it still needs to remain on PBS. So many other children watch and enjoy it. Hell I even watched a few ep here and there.

    The lessons he taught and the way he would talk too children are timeless. The videos he would show on Picture Picture,the trips he would take in the neighborhood,or to the land of Make Believe were educational.There's always going to be children around to watch,enjoy,and learn from his show.

    It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

    I saw the top 5, and I agree with all but TMNT if it's the 1987 version they wanna fuck with.

    Big disagreement here. Just like Sesame Street, Mister Rogers was always about appealing to adults, not content for kids. There's something too "goodie-goodie" about the whole Mister Rogers graze for my taste. Kinda like eating your vegetables - because its good for you.

    I feel sorry for a whole generation of kids that were force-fed "proper" entertainment.

    If you're a kid repeat after me: "Give me a Tom and Jerry marathon, then leave me the hell alone".

    Really... How is TMNT irritating? The person doesn't even add an explanation, just posts a picture. Even though it's the same with each show she's bashing, at least put some credible insight behind it. Not only that, but the show doesn't even fit in with the other 4. Jennifer Jordan, you are retarded.

    This is pretty sad. If they're gonna stop airing it, they could at least put it out on DVD.

    In a world where values and morals have been replaced by a "do whatever you want whenever you feel like it" mentality, the last thing we need is for our kids to lose a top tier role model like Mr. Rogers. I'm glad I grew up, because this new generation is the pits. Mainstream music sucks, a lot of the movies of the last few years suck, and American cartoons aren't even properly animated anymore. I used to think that anime style drawings looked like crap, but even if they do, they still blow current American shows out of the water.

    Please forgive me, but too many people want PBS to be a national repository of our better values. But there is a danger.

    If you get your way PBS will become the network that makes everyone feel good, but no one actually watches.

    Those bastards! They can't get rid of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. I watched his show as a kid, and it was great. Whenever I was have kids, I was hoping to show them his show. I think it's a complete moronic idea to remove his show from airing. But I do agree that if they do take it off air, PBS should put the entirety of his show on DVD.

    I guess...I was only saying that they shouldn't take Mr. Rogers off the air. It is an institution.

    I overreacted. Had regular coffee instead of decaf this morning. I'm better now?

    This is a travesty. I used to watch Mr. Rogers all the time when growing up! He was a bit goody-goody but he taught good, sensible lessons and was patient and caring moral figure for a whole generation of children.

    I also would like Mr. Rogers to be put on DVD.

    PBS could be under pressure from industry insiders to update their scheduled lineup.
