I actually never saw this segment, and I find the identity of the characters in the listing a bit unclear. Except the dog, tiger, owl, is everybody else human? Because it seems to be divided into 2 sections: The majority and the "also many "human" characters" (Seems to say the 1st group aren't human, and there "also many humans". --Menchi 21:25 10 Jul 2003 (UTC)

It's fixed. --Menchi 10:13, Aug 13, 2003 (UTC)

Referring in the past Tense[edit]

I find it somewhat bothersome that everything in this article is described in the past tense. This is a minor qualm, I concede, but describing things in the past tense to me is like telling a story, rather than objectively describing the subject. Scholarly essays are typically written in the present tense at all times. I won't be so presumptuous as to edit the article myself. I'll leave the writer to tell me to F off if he feels me to be in error and then to edit it himself if he chooses to do so. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

This makes sense to me. Your comment has been here since January, so I'll go ahead and make the change. In fact, part of the article is already in present tense. I'll add a note about the show's production dates at the top, so readers know the show isn't currently produced. --Allen 04:00, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Impeach King Friday!

Ha! Very funny, whomever contributed. Seriously, though, wonder why the Family Guy reference didn't work here? Just asking; it was not meant to be nonsense or vandalism. The clip that was referenced is available on YouTube [ at this link], and it indeed shows the neighborhood. If you believe it doesn't belong here, fine, just say so and we'll let it be. Thanks in advance for your timely response. [[Briguy52748 01:22, 19 October 2006 (UTC)]], with an update a few minutes later


I started adding to the entry, but then realized I had no logical way of inserting my contribution without some serious editing of what already existed, so I'm mentioning it here in hope that someone with time, energy, and brain power will add it in. Also, my contribution comes not from any outside source but from my memories of watching the show.

The way into and out of the Neighborhood was usually via trolly, but I would guesstimate at least once every couple of weeks Mr. Rogers would set up cardboard cut-outs of the Neighborhood's set pieces on the kitchen table and say "Let's pretend that [such and such]...", the camera would then zoom in on the cut-outs, which would segue into the Neighborhood segment of the day. I don't remember now how they came out of those segments (so I guess it's just as well I didn't put it in the article). Fitfatfighter 04:04, 8 May 2007 (UTC)

Fate of the Froggs???[edit]

That's a pretty sparse story about the Froggs. What was the deal? Why were they sent packing at such an early date? I dimly remember seeing them as a kid, and I've always been curious what the story was. From the article, it almost sounds like the switch was somehow directly tied to the switch to color, but that seems very odd. (talk) 11:36, 1 June 2008 (UTC)

Suggest merging this to Mister Rogers Neighborhood[edit]

None of this article is sourced at all and almost the whole thing is original research. There is absolutely no historical info on this page and no mentions either if this neighborhood has recieved significant coverage. An example is the fact that we have articles on certain places like Busytown for example, because they have been featured in more than just one series (2 shows and in books). That is not like that for the Neighborhood of Make-Believe as it has only been featured in this show and nowhere else, therefore meaning that its role in this series is not enough. However, as some info on this page is already covered in the main series article, I say this should be merged and redirected there. Thoughts? trainfan01 talk 20:12, November 24, 2010 (UTC)

Wedding references[edit]

I find it somewhat confusing that references to what roles each person played in Betty & James' wedding are sprinkled throughout the article. After all, in over 900 episodes the wedding was not a long-term theme. Perhaps one section could be made called "Betty & James' wedding" and the roles could be moved there.

Episode numbers[edit]

This article mentions episode numbers into the thousands, but according to the main article there were only 895 episodes. Can someone explaining the numbering system? Tad Lincoln (talk) 05:33, 9 June 2012 (UTC)

I've seen onscreen episode numbers that were four digits; maybe that's the source of the confusion. Trivialist (talk) 15:07, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
