USPS:New Forever Stamp Released on Mr.Rogers

Fred Rogers (1928–2003) was known as a beloved television neighbor to generations of children.  His groundbreaking public television series “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”inspired and educated young viewers with warmth, sensitivity and honesty. Filmed in Pittsburgh and first distributed nationally in 1968 by a predecessor of the Public Broadcasting Service, the program was innovative and unlike anything on television for children at that time.  Each episode of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”began with its host welcoming the audience into his television house. While singing “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” The stamp features Walt Seng’s photograph of Rogers in a red cardigan and also includes puppet King Friday XIII, a Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood character hailing from “The Neighborhood of Make-Believe.” The words “Forever” and “USA” appear in the left corner.
