Mister Rogers speaks with an audience member

Watch today's Google Doodle video below.

To pay tribute to the legacy of Mr. Rogers's neighborhood, Google has created a stop-motion animated Doodle set to the show's theme song composed and performed by Rogers himself, "Won't You be My Neighbor?". As the creator and host of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, he began every episode speaking directly to you, asking "won't you be my neighbor" before taking you on a half-hour educational exploration of science, music, crafts and, well, friendship.

"He became known as Mister Rogers, nationally beloved, sweater wearing, 'television neighbor, ' whose groundbreaking children's series inspired and educated generations of young viewers with warmth, sensitivity and honesty".

Parents can now ask Google to lock their teenager's smartphone
With the new changes, minors over age 13 can create similar Google accounts, or update their old ones to enable parental controls. While the kids need to have devices running Android 7.0 Nougat and higher, some devices with Android 5.0 or 6.0 could also work.

It's a handsome day for the legacy of Fred Rogers, one of America's most beloved television personalities.

Mister Rogers has seen something of a resurgence in pop-culture this past year, thanks in large part to the release of the highly-acclaimed documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor?

"Mister Rogers Neighborhood" debuted on September 21, 1967 on WQED, but it wasn't until February 1968 that the show would premiere nationally on PBS. "There's nobody else in the whole world who's exactly like you". Rogers died in 2003 at age 74, but the iconic children's entertainer is still with us: all 856 episodes of his classic show are available to watch for free on livestreaming site Twitch.
