Twitch will be hosting a Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood marathon for 18 days starting on May 15 at 12 p.m. PT/9 a.m. ET/8 a.m. CT.
All 886 episodes of the beloved children’s show will be streamed live at www.twitch.tv/misterrogers. The marathon will feature episodes that only aired once and aren’t available online anywhere else, with additional mini-marathons to follow. Twitch will also be running a fundraising campaign during the marathon to help support local PBS stations.
“We were drawn to Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood because Fred Rogers was a positive voice in fostering inclusivity and diversity, and, like our streamers, he talked to the viewers as if they were in the room with him,” said Bill Moorier, Head of Creative at Twitch. “While his show was geared toward children, his messages have universal appeal.”
