A generation of children grew up being taught about kindness, empathy and the power of love thanks to iconic TV softboy Mr. Rogers, host of Mr. Rogers neighborhood. Mr. Rogers not only proved that low-budget, high-quality children's TV could be captivating, but covered radical topics like death and divorce and had a racially diverse cast at a time when that was not the norm, especially on children's shows.
The documentary Won't You be My neighbor, about the show and its impact, is out this summer, and the first trailer is finally here. If you're in need of a cathartic happy cry there is a lot of emotion -- and sweaters -- packed in the two minute clip.
Won't You Be My Neighbor is out June 8.
