Nine to Celebrate Mister Rogers 50th Anniversary All-Year Long

Last Updated by Dale Fisher on

The Nine Network will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood on February 19 with special programming, giveaways and community events all-year long. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for announcements of all the fun to come.

Tune in to the quiz show Jeopardy! on February 6 when Mister Rogers is a theme of one of the categories. In March, there will be a membership special hosted by Michael Keaton, with Mister Rogers-themed, thank-you gifts for becoming a supporter of Nine.

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, the documentary about the life and work of Fred Rogers is set to be released in theaters June 8. Nine PBS will air the movie later in 2018.

A current show airing on Nine PBS, Nine PBS KIDS and streaming online with similar themes and messages as the beloved Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood is Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, which builds on the pioneering series and is produced by The Fred Rogers Company. Special episode pairings of the two air the week of February 26.

Nine PBS airs Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood on Mondays at 12:30 p.m.
