The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

PBS

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day.

Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.

Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if we would be his neighbor. Obviously we sang along every single time.

The show was intended for kids aged two to five, but honestly, at any age you could watch the show and enjoy it. There was just something so soothing about his presence, and it also helped that we all knew that he was just an awesome guy all around.

He didn't just care about being on TV, he genuinely cared about every child that watched his show and wanted to make the world a better place for them all.

It was Rogers's six minute speech in 1969 that helped earn the $20 million needed to fund PBS. He spoke about how shows like his were beneficial for kids to grow into productive members of the community. His words gave the chairman of the subcommittee goosebumps, and solidified the investment in the publicly funded programs.

After such an epic and magical life, Rogers's story is one that many of us are curious about. And now, there is a new movie that will help give us an inside look at his life, and now we know a little bit more about it and we already have tears in our eyes.

8 Young Celebrities We Grew Up Watching Who Ended Up Behind Bars

You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

Macaulay Culkin Opens Up About 'Home Alone' And 'My Girl' In New Interview With Ellen

Macaulay Culkin was one of the biggest stars of the 90s. He was in so many of our childhood favorites including both of the Home Alone movies, My Girl, and Richie Rich. His ability to act so well at such a young age gave him an advantage over a lot of the other child stars at the time, and by the time he was a teenager he had been in over a dozen movies. It wasn't easy being a child star, and when he was 14 he decided to take time off to go to high school and live a
