The loss of perennial children's television favorite Fred Rogers left a hole in the hearts of many Americans that could never be filled by the likes of the Teletubbies or Barney the Dinosaur. Rogers was a gentle, soft-spoken "neighbor" whose constant sense of wonder and innocence shone a positive ray of bright light on a medium that seems to grow less kid-friendly with each passing hour. His timeless lessons of learning and sharing are looked back upon by actor (and former Mister Rogers' Neighborhood crew member) Michael Keaton through a collection of vintage clips and behind-the-scenes footage from Rogers' 30-year stint as America's premiere children's television broadcaster.
