VIDEO OF THE DAY: Mister Rogers Remix ‘Garden Of Your Mind’
June 7, 2012

Not many television personalities have achieved the iconic status or wide-reaching audience that Mr. Rogers has. His show spanned 33-years with 895 episodes, where he taught children to respect themselves and their neighbours.

PBS Digital Studios and John D. Boswell's Symphony Of Science have teamed up to remix Rogers' words into a mesmerizing song. Boswell's musical project was designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in a musical form.

Not only does the song provide an infectiously catchy auto-tuned melody, but it is a great tribute to the late Fred Rogers. And PBS has announced that it is only the "first in a series that will pay homage to PBS icons." We can only hope for an authorized Bob Ross or Charlie Rose remix to hit the internet sometime soon.
