As someone who grew up on Mr. Rogers and is still irrationally saddened by his no longer being with us, this brought incredible joy to my life.
When we discovered video mash-up artist John D. Boswell, aka melodysheep, on YouTube, we immediately wanted to work together. Turns out that he is a huge Mister Rogers Neighborhood fan, and was thrilled at the chance to pay tribute to one of our heroes.
PBS, which has suddenly been doing great work in efforts to engage the web, says that the video below is “the first in a series of PBS icons remixed.” I look forward to enjoying the others.
And as an added bonus, here’s a vid the PBS idea channel put out yesterday titled, “Are Bronies Changing The Definition Of Masculinity?” You’re welcome, self-conscious bronies. You know who you are.
