Petition to show reruns of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood more than once per week

This petition had 193 supporters

As a childhood friend of millions, Fred Rogers never failed to brighten up the day of individuals each and every day. As a part of the last generation who grew up with Mister Rogers, I think that it's important for children to be able to receive the kind of attention that he gave no matter what their current life situation is. 

Here's the problem: it only airs once per week in most areas and it's often at a time during the weekend when most people aren't awake. He offered a unique experience that is difficult to replicate, and until a new show of the sort is created, I don't think that he should be taken off of the screen. 

While the successor, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, is both fun and educational, it just isn't the same type of show without a human being looking into the eyes of someone and honestly telling him that he truly has worth. The option for children to wake up every day before school and watch the show before school should be a readily available one. His birthday is coming up soon, and I think that it would make him very happy if his show continued to be played as much as it used to.

I'm calling everyone who grew up with the neighborhood to sign this petition. I'd like my future children and their peers to receive the television experience they deserve.
