Fred Rogers did have a lot of creative control over his show. Mister Rogers Smiling Leaning on Trolley shirt Fred worked most of the puppets in the neighborhood of make-believe and he also wrote all the music for the show. Fred also talked about some very interesting topics and some touchy topics such as divorce and death. He talked about many topics in ways children would understand and learn from the things he told them. Mr. Rogers seemed so kind, and the slow speed and nice neighborhood made children feel very safe. He introduced children to neighborhood things, like the Post Office, and often showed behind-the-scene information (like how letters are sorted at the post office) which allowed children to imagine that there is more to life beyond what is seen.
