    Mr. Rogers is getting some action lately as I saw another film in the works with Tom Hanks in the role of Fred Rogers.

    I honestly didn't know the Rogers film company was still in existence but one of my younger kids watches Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. I didn't know they were related by production until I heard the theme song for Daniel Tiger which is essentially a modernized 'Won't you be my neighbor?'

    I've watched Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, on occasion. Good show, well within the spirit of Rogers. Though, obviously, targeted at a certain age group.
