** EddieMurphy was featured in a series of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' skits, "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood," in which he copied Mr. Rogers' speaking style but discussed antisocial behavior in a gritty urban setting. ("You know any other words that start with X, boys and girls? How about... Ex-con?") Fortunately, Mr. Rogers recognized Murphy's [[AffectionateParody affection]] and took them in good fun.

** Mr. [=McFeely=], the delivery man, who, in a ShoutOut of CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming proportions, was named after Rogers' maternal grandfather, the first person to ever tell him that he could make life special just by being himself. Ironically, however, the character was actually supposed to be named Mr. [=McCurdy=], after the show's benefactor. But the Sears-Roebuck Foundation, one of the show's funders, called the producers and told them that they objected to the idea.
** Queen Sara Saturday was named after Rogers' wife, Sara Joanne Rogers, nee Byrd.

** In the second season of ''WesternAnimation/BillAndTedsExcellentAdventures'', those two righteous dudes were shocked and totally bummed out to learn that their favourite childhood show, [[WritingAroundTrademarks Mr Radish's Condo]], is about to be cancelled because [[GoodIsOldfashioned kids today don't want his brand of sweetness]]. Cue Wyld Stallyns trying to make him stay... [[StopHelpingMe and making things a lot worse for him]]. Eventually, Mr Radish decides to [[WereStillRelevantDammit change his image completely]], ending up as a TotallyRadical rocker, which Bill and Ted initially consider to be most excellent... until they realise [[WhatHaveIDone that maybe this was perhaps a most]] {{egregious}} [[CaptainObvious error in judgement]]. Thankfully, [[DeusExMachina Rufus shows up]] with Ted's bratty brother, who points out to Mr. Radish that you should BeYourself, [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped for your own sake if nothing else]]. Mr Radish agrees, and changes back into his [[CostumeInertia red sweater]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Kayfabe}}: Averted breaking of the trope when Carroll Spinney and the Children's Television Workshop objected to Rogers' idea to have Spinney remove his Big Bird costume on camera, as a way of Rogers explaining the difference between make-believe and reality. Spinney did agree to appear (as Big Bird) in the "Neighborhood of Make-Believe" segments, and then on the regular show talk about his career and puppetry. Rogers did make a few sly remarks, however, about fantasy creatures.
** Early in the series' run, Rogers and his supporting cast referred to the "Neighborhood of Make Believe" as a real place, before this was quietly dropped.
