Mister Rogers Is Coming To Your Neighborhood, On A Stamp
February 8, 2018
The United States Postal Service is sending Mister Rogers to every neighborhood starting March 23, 2018.
The new stamp featuring Fred Rogers and one of his show’s popular puppets, King Friday XIII, will be unveiled in the same Pittsburgh public television station where “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” was produced.
Rogers created, hosted and composed the theme music for the educational children’s television series that aired from 1968 until 2001. He passed away two years later at the age of 74 from stomach cancer.
Rogers was known as a beloved television neighbor to generations of children. His message was simple: love yourself and others.
