Even though I never watched “Mister Rogers Neighborhood” as a child and didn’t share it with my daughter, I was familiar with the character on the most superficial level. This doc fosters a greater appreciation of his significance as a TV personality and children’s advocate. It explores the dedicated, sweet man whose primary message was one of love and acceptance. There’s footage from the decades of his show that’s supplemented by interviews with him, his family and his co-workers. Just like the man, this film doesn’t avoid some controversial issues. Ultimately, it’s an appealing and illuminating portrait of a much-loved icon.
