Spanning 1,765 episodes, 206 songs sung, and 162 unforgettable characters, it is perhaps the most beloved of children's television. Mr. Roger's classic messages about self acceptance and kindness became a legacy that touched countless Americans.

It all began in a small town called Latrobe, Pennsylvania where Fred Rogers was born in 1928. He grew to serve as a chairman of a White House forum for child development and mass media. Mr. Rogers spoke before the U.S. senate giving a moving speech about the value of kindness. After hearing him speak, congress raised the PBS annual funding from 9 million to 21 million dollars.

Generations of children grew up learning the everlasting lessons of kindness and the power of believing in oneself. Take a look at this infographic for more on the legacy of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.
