* SeasonalRot: Probably one of the most impressive aversions on record. Despite running for 33 years and producing shy of 900 episodes, the show remained consistently high in quality through all of its life. Helped, no doubt, by production of the show slowing down significantly after the first eight seasons so to prevent every idea from getting exhausted too quickly. Not to mention, Fred was still writing all of the scripts himself.

* MemeticBadass:
** Go to the [=DnD=] wiki -- [[http://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/Mr._Rogers_(3.5e_Deity) he's a minor god.]]
** It's not just any old badassery, either. He's a memetic ''BadassPacifist''. Mr. Rogers can talk anyone into a reasonable exploration of their feelings, and according to at least one thread on Website/FourChan, that includes [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} the Chaos Gods, the Imperium of Man, the Necrons, the Tau, the Orks]]...
*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXEuEUQIP3Q A specific example]] of Memetic BadassPacifist was when he spent six minutes talking down congress from cutting PBS funding with 10 mill. dollars. It resulted with them increasing the same amount instead, as if he rolled 20 for diplomacy check.
** And lets not forget The Music/UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny:
--> ''The fight raged on for a century''
--> ''Many lives were claimed, but eventually''
--> ''The champion stood, the rest saw their better:''
--> ''Mr. Rogers in a blood-stained sweater''
** [[WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory He can out-rap]] ''Creator/MrT''. [[WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory He won't even see it coming.]]
** And of course there are the (utterly false) rumors about him being a sniper.

* MemeticMutation:
** Mr. Rogers FlippingTheBird (during a playing of "Where is Thumbkin?")
** The 2017 Twitch marathon spawned several memes in the chat, such as...
*** Jokes about Sears (mostly praise though), due to being the main funding source and getting credited in every episode up until the early-1990s.
*** Mr. Rogers being referred to as everyone's "TV dad". As a result, the chat would say "Hi Dad/Bye Dad" whenever he began or ended an episode.
*** NET vs. PBS jokes, and how PBS "killed" NET (not helped by the fact that most of the early color NET-era episodes were replastered with the 1971 PBS logo, despite still having the model NET building in the opening and closing)
*** Chat spamming the word "SNAPPY" during the corresponding line in both ending songs: "'Til then, I hope your day is snappy" in "Tomorrow", and "I think I'll make a snappy new day" in "It's Such a Good Feeling".
*** During the later episodes, saying "D O I N K" while either of the two PBS Kids bumpers from 1999 would play.
*** General appreciation for music director Johnny Costa's piano skills. During the ending credits of each episode, chatters would comment things like "Take us home, Johnny!" or "TICKLE THEM IVORIES COSTA". Betty Aberlin, when she would show up in chat, participated in this as well, often saying a simple "COSTA!".
*** "[=Feels(something)Man=]" (most often [=FeelsGoodMan=], simply just because of how feel-good the show is)
*** Memes from the "Garden of your Mind" remix:
*** The [[FanNickname slide whistle solo]] segment, accompanied by comments such as "S O L O" and "RAP GOD" [[note]]the latter likely inspired by the "Epic Rap Battles of History" WebVideo series, of which one episode pitted Mr. Rogers against Creator/MrT)[[/note]].
*** "I didn't order any X!" based on the line that precedes the solo ("I didn't order any whistles!")
*** "CAT'S EEEEEYES" and many cat emotes during the line "Did you ever see a cat's eyes in the dark and wonder what they were?"
*** "18+" or "lewd" (mentioned any time something was referred to as a "grown-up thing" in the show)
*** "MUTED" (mentioned any time [[TheScrappy a Twitch streamer]] cameo'd during a break)
*** Everyone saying "Don't go!" whenever an episode ended
*** Everytime King Friday XIII mentions the "R" Room or "M" room, twitch chat would flare up and joke about them. R and M, being of course, the rating for adult content for movies and video games respectively.
*** People would also complain if Mr. Rogers forgot to feed the fishes at any point of the episode. This escalated as the marathon went on, with dozens of users spamming fish emotes and sending desperate messages such as "WE'RE STARVING" and "FATHER WE HAVEN'T BEEN FED IN DAYS".
*** Whenever a live animal would appear on camera, several chatters would inevitably mention that "[[DeadAnimalWarning that (insert animal here) is dead now]]."
*** Chanting "[[Music/{{DMX}} X Gon Give It to Ya]]" everytime X the Owl is mentioned.
*** Anytime Lady Aberlin appears. See MsFanservice below.
*** "R O Y A L W O R D", "G R E E T I N G S" or some variation of the two every time the Twitch Greetings bumper plays (which is after every episode).
*** Also occurred during the actual episode that the "greetings" scene was in, prompting chat to go absolutely nuts.
*** "4K quality" whenever Picture Picture shows a film. Seemed to die out once they moved to VHS tapes, since VHS is decidedly ''not'' 4K.
*** ''Darude - Sandstorm'' coming up in chat every time a musical instrument appears in the show, likely stemming from the AskAStupidQuestion meme. Equally frequent is the ''Lynyrd Skynyrd'' classic ''Freebird'' coming up.
*** "Get in the Ram, kids" or a variant of it every time Mr. Rogers travels to a different location in the neighborhood.
*** "T H I S", a WhosOnFirst type joke from the funding credits ("The people who give the money to make ''Mister Rogers' Neighborhood'' are the people of...this, and other public television stations...") where people pretend to thank a person/corporation literally called "This".
*** At the start of each episode the Twitch chat would often bet on what color of cardigan sweater Mister Rogers would wear.
*** KING FRIDAY IS A DESPOT/TYRANT/FASCIST whenever strange edicts are issued (such as everyone must wear mittens).
*** 2 GENDERS and BINARY whenever he would mention that girls are women and boys are men. This would inevitably lead to TRIGGERED appearing in the chat along with mention that Tumblr is pissed/wrong/going to riot.

* SeasonalRot: Probably one of the most impressive aversions on record. Despite running for 33 years and producing shy of 900 episodes, the show remained consistently high in quality through all of its life. Helped, no doubt, by production of the show slowing down significantly after the first eight seasons so to prevent every idea from getting exhausted too quickly.

** Francois Clemmons was the first African-American regular on a children's program, and Rogers intended to make sure of it. An early appearance featured Mr. Rogers cooling his feet in a wading pool and inviting Officer Clemmons to join him. The camera then pans right in to show two pairs of feet side by side, sharing the same space as equals. The actor Francois Clemmons was incredibly moved by this for years, understanding the significance of it in 1969. It would so move him that in his final appearance on the show, the scene was recreated one more time and this time Rogers performed the symbolic act of drying Clemmons' feet with a towel.

Added DiffLines:

** One of Audrey Duck's earliest appearances involves her teaching King Friday how to order a TV and introducing the power of television to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe (including the toddler Prince Tuesday.) This becomes hilarious in that sometime after her appearances on Mr. Rogers, Susan Linn, Audrey's puppeteer, would take a much more critical approach to television and screens in childhood development and even founded the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood to campaign against it. She still performs with Audrey Duck to promote her anti-consumer activism. Not that she's upset with the show that gave her her big break - the organization also hands out a Fred Rogers Integrity Award every year to people that work against consumerism and ''Mister Rogers Neighborhood'' notably features little to no tie-in merchandising and does not include advertisements or product placements (even in it's "how things are made" videos).
