Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood of Make-Believe set will come alive for the first time since production ceased in 2001 during an open house Nov. 6-8 in Studio A at WQED in Pittsburgh. King Friday XIII’s castle, X the Owl’s tree and other set pieces from the longtime fave kids’ show will be on display. Mr. McFeeley the Speedy Delivery Mailman will even be there (in real life, David Newell, still on the staff at Rogers’ Family Communications). WQED said in a statement it will send invitations to pubTV stations nationwide for Mister Rogers’ fans to attend the event. This will be the last look at the sets, it added.
