Tear Jerker: Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Didn't contain, but was still related to examples of:

  • Tear Jerker: In terms of the series itself, there are two: The goldfish episode in 1970, and the week-long series intended to help children cope with The Day After in 1983.
    Mr. McFeely: (As he comforts the tearful Read-A-Roo) Yeah, I miss him too.
  • Seriously. People would think this kind hearted man hurt children unintentionally in the long run. Some of the comments that come up from viewers later in the program point out exactly how ridiculous this is.
  • The final episode premiered less than 2 weeks before September 11th. We sure could have used Mr. Rogers's help then.
