WASHINGTON (CIRCA) — The very first "beautiful day" in "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" was 51 years ago today. The children's program had aired on regional networks before premiering on national television Feb. 19, 1968.

"Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," aimed at preschool-aged children, was created by and starred Fred Rogers. The show had many repeated motifs, songs, and a slower pace than other animated children's shows.

The success of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" eventually led to a spinoff that still airs today, called "Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood."
