*** The comments sections for most shows, as noted above, are full of snarking, ShipToShipCombat, people insulting the characters, writers, and each other, MisaimedFandom...look up a clip of ''Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood,'' and it will almost exclusively be people singing his praises.

* Doubling as a TearJerker, in the late 90s up until his death, Rogers faced mass protests against him, suggesting that he had poisoned a generation of children by implying that they were all special, because it meant they wouldn't work hard to achieve anything in life. He responded in his commencement address to Dartmouth that being special doesn't mean that. It means ''you don't have to do anything sensational in order for people to love you.''

** In episode 1578, Lady Aberlin and Daniel Tiger sing the stunningly beautiful duet "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6XAP_VThhk Sometimes I Wonder If I'm A Mistake]]." Daniel plaintively wonders if he is a mistake because he is not like anyone else, but Lady Aberlin reassures him that that is exactly what she loves about him. At the end, in a rare moment, Lady Aberlin gives Daniel not just an "ugga mugga" nose rub but an actual kiss, and tells him how much she loves him. Yeah, [[TearJerker grab a tissue for this one.]] As well, the intricate two-voice counterpoint qualifies it as some AwesomeMusic.

* Lady Aberlin's entire relationship with Daniel.

* Lady Aberlin's entire relationship with Daniel.Daniel, truly making them the pure heart and soul of the Neighborhood of Make-Believe.



* Neighbor Aber, being a slight secondary Mister Rogers, with his compassion and kindness. He even fills in for Mister Rogers for a few minutes in [[http://www.neighborhoodarchive.com/mrn/episodes/1056/index.html episode #1578]], when the latter has to go to a meeting.

to:

** In a similar situation (in episode #1548), King Friday wants to hold a bass violin music festival, but Lady Aberlin is struggling to play her own. She shares her worries with Daniel and is nervous to tell her uncle about it. Daniel convinces his gal pal to tell him the truth as it will make her feel better. And it works.
** From episodes #1628-1630, Lady Aberlin ends up turning into a tiger and nobody recognizes her at all, except for Daniel who eventually finds out who she really is in episode #1630 when she shares an "ugga mugga" with him. Feeling bad that she has unintentionally been scaring people, she reveals that even though she wants to return to her normal self, part of her wants to remain a tiger so she can be a part of Daniel's family. Daniel explains that they are related by their hearts, and [[ThePowerOfLove with that, Lady Aberlin turns back into herself]]. It especially gets sweet when Princess Zelda arrives on the scene and Lady Aberlin acknowledges Daniel as her relative.
--> '''Daniel Tiger''': You're part of my family no matter what you are. That's the way it is with a family of friends. They don't look alike. They feel for each other.

* A scene in episode #1591 has a moment that counts as both this and a slight TearJerker. Mr. [=McFeely=] delivers Mister Rogers a videotape, which was supposed to show how harmonicas were made. After he leaves, Mister Rogers finds out he received the wrong tape, but being ever so flexible, watches it anyway, which shows how gardening hoses are made. However, Mr. [=McFeely=] returns, feeling very upset when a customer who was supposed to receive the gardening hose tape, had reprimanded him for receiving the wrong copy. The rest of the scene with Fred being so understanding is just too precious for words, as he even sings him "You Are Special".
--> '''Mister Rogers''': You've certainly made a lot of deliveries for me.
--> '''Mr. [=McFeely=]''': They haven't been so bad, have they?
--> '''Mister Rogers''': Bad? Why, you're so special to me, I don't know what I'd do without you and your Delivery Service.
--> '''Mr. [=McFeely=]''': But I've made some mistakes for you too.
--> '''Mister Rogers''': Well, who hasn't made mistakes in his work?
--> '''Mr. [=McFeely=]''': Well, I guess we all make mistakes sometimes. But, those people made me feel so bad. I mean, they made me feel so small... not worth anything.
--> '''Mister Rogers''': Maybe they were having a hard day too, Mr. [=McFeely=].

* In episode #1600, Mr. [=McFeely=] delivers Mister Rogers a suitcase, with an alarm inside. The alarm beeps later during the episode after the Make-Believe segment, and Mister Rogers opens the suitcase to find a note attached to the alarm, instructing him to change out of his sweater (while singing "It's Such a Good Feeling") and go outside. He follows the instructions and is touched to find all of his neighbors (sans Mr. [=McFeely=] himself) throwing him a SurpriseParty. The look on his face is just so full of pride.

** A bonus story from one of his employees comes from an early 1990s issue of Model Railroader. An employee built a smaller scale model of Trolley and modified the model town from the opening credits to include a track to run it on. This was all done without permission, and the show ran on the adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". He demonstrated his modification in front of Mister Rogers without telling anyone else in advance; Rogers loved it instantly.
