Mr. McFeely: Behind the Music

Print More

A documentary about David Newell, who played Mr. McFeely on Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood and continues to makes in-character appearances 40 years later, premieres tomorrow in Pittsburgh. The doc, made on $4,000 by a 26-year-old who forged a friendship with Newell three years ago, follows the speedy delivery man–in and out of costume–through a summer of engagements, including one on a Mr. Rogers’ replica set in Baltimore.
