Google is here to spread a little extra Friday sunshine with their celebratory Mr. Rogers Google Doodle.
This is definitely a #FridayFeeling kinda moment.
At this point in the morning, you’ve probably already had (at least) one cup of coffee and opened your email. While you’re counting down the hours 'til 5 o’clock, add one more thing to your to-do list for the day. Take a trip back to the Land of Make Believe through Google’s latest Google Doodle.
Fifty-one years ago today, on September 21, 1967, Fred Rogers taped the first episode of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood at WQED in Pittsburgh. Although the episode didn’t premiere nationally until almost 5 months later, on February 19, 1968, it didn’t take long for Rogers to nestle a comfy little spot into our hearts.
The Google Doodle brings us back to that warm and fuzzy feeling of watching Mister Rogers. From the classic "Won’t You Be My Neighbor" tune, to a trip on the trolley to see King Friday and Queen Saturday, you’ll be ready to put on your cardigan and spread Rogers’ message of kindness and inclusion after one of his classic pep talks: "There’s nobody else in the whole world who’s exactly like you, and people can like you exactly as you are."
