Tis truly mind-boggling how over 800 episodes of Mr Roger's Neighborhood - which aired fresh episodes from 1968 for decades, until ending
abruptly on Sept 1, 2001 - somehow 'changed' from the lyrics of the theme song saying 'The' neighborhood to now 'This' neighborhood. His
lips imo still seem to still be 'saying' The' neighborhood in all episodes i've re-watched; alas I'm no lip-reading expert per say.
What does this unexplained, unaddressed change mean?
Various spinoffs of the show's theme song interestingly enough remain 'The' neighborhood, including Daniel Tiger's show, referenced in YT
May Fred Rogers (whose middle name happens to be my mum's maiden name) RIP!
