On that terrible day in 2003 when Fred Rogers left this planet, I openly wept at his loss. I knew then and still believe that a man like Mister Rogers only comes along once in a lifetime. Sadly, there may never be another television show as influential and downright healthy for children to watch. The good news is that Anchor Bay has teamed up with Rogers' company, Family Communications, to begin releasing episodes of Mister Rogers Neighborhood on DVD. The two episodes featured on this disc and its companion disc, "A Day at the Circus" are in as good a shape as I've seen them. The bonus materials are also blessedly free of the fluff and commericialism that is so prevalent on children's videos today. Disney, I'm talking to you! My son is only fifteen months old, but already has fallen in love with Mister Rogers and his neighbors. The program not only captures his attention, but he responds to it in ways that show me that he is truly involved with the events on the screen. Mister Rogers was an important part of my childhood and I am so pleased that he will also be a part of my son's life. Thank you, Mister Rogers!

This DVD contains two full episodes of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, one from the early 1980's (when I was watching it every day) and the other from a decade later (when my father watched it for me while I was at school and reported back to me what we learned that day).

In the first episode, we get to visit a restaurant, and then in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl get angry with each other while making fruit salad.

In the second episode, the Neighborhood of Make-Believe comes first, which totally disoriented me since I ALWAYS remembered it the other way around--anyway, Lady Aberlin asks questions about what love is, and then in the real neighborhood we get to hear lullabyes played on a mandolin by a Ukranian guy with a mullet.

I had forgotten just how serious this show is. I tend to file it away with "happy childhood memories," but really, love and friendship and anger and all of that ARE serious topics for anyone, and Mister Rogers does not water down his themes just because his audience is very young.

The DVD extras are pretty cool--for adults, a video of Mister Rogers accepting his lifetime achievement award, which is touching in and of itself but also includes a neat video synopsis of his life (it doesn't mention his death though). The teddy bear assembly was interesting as well. My kid is still in the womb so I will have to get back with you about the effectiveness of the kid activities and games on the DVD. :)

My one disappointment was that Daniel Striped Tiger, who is totally my favorite, was not on either episode. I missed Corny, too, in his rocking chair factory--he wasn't even on the DVD extra.

I have not yet purchased this DVD. I am just beginning to shop for Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood DVD's for my 2-year-old granddaughter. However, as I survey the products that are available for this show, I am really appalled. Most of the DVD's are two shows each for $9.99. Fred Rogers would have wanted his show to be available to as many kids as possible, as cheaply as possible, with as much respect for the integrity of the original programming as possible. None of the products currently available seem to offer any of that. What is needed, as an example, is Mr. Rogers: Complete Season 1 and 2, on maybe two DVD's, with all the episodes in order, at a price of $20-25. The current offerings bear no resemblance to that, and the impression is that his copyrights have fallen into the hands of someone who cares nothing about his work and is just trying to milk it for what they can get. I sure hope something better is in the works, but I'm not holding my breath. I'm giving it three stars since this is not an actual review, but my impression is that the concept and marketing deserve a zero.

Mister Rogers Adventure in Friendship is an excellent DVD. This is one of two Mister Rogers DVD's released to date and if you have young children you will be pleased with this purchase. This DVD is so much more than just two amazing Mister Rogers episodes on DVD. The program booklet and DVD extras assist you in really using this DVD as a teaching tool. Not only can it be used as a teaching tool, it can also be entertaining for your child because it includes many activities and suggested activities. This is the first childrens DVD that I ever had that came with a recipe. The Mister Rogers Adventures in Friendship DVD comes with a recipe for Pizza Bagels. The recipe is in the full color booklet and on the DVD. The activities included with the DVD are Making Paper Chains and Silly Folder Picture. The DVD book includes Care-Giving Tips, similar to those founds on the Mister Rogers PBS website. Another thing I really appreciated was that the book has suggested reading appropriate to the theme of the two episodes included on the DVD. The DVD includes the episodes "When Friends Fight," and "Love." The DVD also includes games. If you have a DVD Rom, it would be probably easier for a young child to play the games with the mouse or the arrows on a computer verses with the remote control for the DVD player. These are just a few of the special features included with this release, as there are many more. This is an excellent DVD release and it is quite clear that the DVD producers and people associated with the show put a lot of effort into making this a quality DVD release.
