Customer Reviews

I was inspired by the life of this man, made me want to learn more about him.
Kelly
She loves it as much as I did when I was a little girl, so I was excited to watch this documentary and learn more about the real Mister Rogers.
Thomas J. Emmons
And never once did he preach, or try to sell us anything, because, you see, Mr. Rogers liked everyone ... just they way they are.

A must see for those raised on the PBS show or any parent whose children watch television.

Wouldn't "we" all like to live in Mister Rogers real neighborhood, especially nearly next door? (I say "we" because the long-running PBS show ` "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" - came a bit after my own childhood. I grew up on "Ding Dong School" and "Romper Room".) Well MTV producer Ben Wagner - along with his cameraman brother, Chris, actually did live next to Fred Rogers in Nantucket, RI, when he was growing up. Rogers died in 2003 and the filmmaker Wagner brothers decided to produce a documentary tribute to Rogers and the ideals he set out to share with his PBS audience through his PBS show.

Through archival photos - gathered from the Rogers family - and interviews with celebrities - including another Nantucket neighbor, the late Tim Russert (NBC's "meet The Press), NPRs original "All Things Considered" host, Susan Stamberg,, and Nick News producer Linda Ellerbee, the Wagners weave a loving tribute to this "gentle" man who never had an unkind word for anyone.

The fact that placing a child in front of a TV set when MRN was on was a "safe place to be" is reiterated throughout the 70-minute film. Unlike "Sesame Street" and "Barney", Rogers never used his name or show to sell merchandise to children. There are facts revealed in Ben Wagner's narration that will interest parents. The percent of one-year old children who have a TV in their room was just one that astounded me.

If I was left with one question after watching the film, it was that the Wagners interviewed nearly everyone that was "connected" to Rogers and his career but not his family. We learn, briefly, that he had two sons but - aside from one photo - they are never mentioned again, nor interviewed.

I stumbled across this documentary on PBS while casually channel-surfing earlier this evening. There was nothing better on at the time, and like every other American my age, I grew up watching Mr. Rogers, so figured I might as well watch. Never did I anticipate the emotional response it triggered. As the filmmakers demonstrate through a series of interviews and correspondence with friends and associates, Fred Rogers was the embodiment of love, kindness, and acceptance. Although he is gone, I am wistful as I imagine the positive impact our society could experience if we were all to embrace the ideals that Mr. Rogers promoted- and more importantly, lived by.

One of the film's most illuminating anecdotes is from a young man who was acquainted with Mr. Rogers while growing up, and had the opportunity to interview him years later for his own television show. He presented Mr. Rogers with a conflict he was having with his upstairs neighbor, who resented hearing the loud music blasting from his apartment below. Mr. Rogers went beyond choosing sides in the dispute. Instead, he emphasized two key concepts: that individuals have the right to live in peaceful silence, and that in order to live together, we need to reach out and get to know those around us. At a time when divisiveness and the ability to shout down opponents are qualities we reward in our politicians, and our communication comes in the form of stunted thoughts limited to 140 characters or less, we need Mr. Rogers more than ever.

Format: DVD
MISTER ROGERS AND ME (writ., prod., dir. Ben and Chris Wagner, 2010, 70 minutes) is a wonderful, must-see, can't-miss documentary of Reverend Fred McFeely Rogers, better known as Mr. Rogers. Presented and narrated by Ben Wagner, who was a young neighbor of Mr. Rogers' near the Rogers' "Crooked House" on Nantucket, this film not only gives the viewer a healthy dose of Mr. Rogers. It dwells for 70 minutes on the massive, sacred contribution of Mr. Rogers and speaks to several great people who were influenced and taught by him.

A chubby boy fled for cover as a mob of bullies chased him, shouting, "We're going to get you, Fat Freddie!!" This was the 8-year-old Mr. Rogers, who had an odd kind of upbringing. While his family strove to see the good in people - which was Mr. Rogers' own profound way - they dismissed his anger, his distress at being fat and being bullied, they told him to shrug it off like it was nothing. This may have been the most profound (and sadly negative) lesson in Fred's young life: why hadn't his parents allowed him an outlet, given him some guidance? He sought his entire life to discover why - and to fix it.

It would come down to fearlessly acknowledging, accepting and working out kids' feelings.

Fred Rogers graduated college with a degree in musical composition - and would return to the seminary later to emerge as an ordained Presbyterian minister. His congregation would be the nation, via television, and in that sense he was a television preacher. He was so much more than that, and I think of him as the founder of public television, which he fought to establish in the early 1960s. Deeply touched by the works of spiritual guru Bo Lozoff, Mr.

Mister Rogers & Me focuses little on the man and much on his message: Deep and simple.

Through conversations with a variety of notable individuals, the message of "deep and simple" is solidified in those of us who grew up with regular visits to the Neighborhood and we are reminded of the authenticity of Fred Rogers -- both on and off the camera.

Certainly, Mister Rogers & Me is more than just another documentary. It is a challenge to better ourselves and to recognize the importance of what is deep and simple -- to appreciate every second and every moment, every person and every meeting, that we are blessed to experience.
