One of the few shows that I was allowed to watch as a child (other than The Lawrence Welk Show) was Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. And while I don’t like people messing around with icons of my (and Georgette’s) childhood, I do make exceptions. The Willy Wonka meme is one. And this remix of Mr. Rogers encouraging imagination is another.

Personally, I’m not sure this is meant for young kids; the tinny, trippy, echo-effect is a little harsh for toddler ears. I like to think that perhaps we, as parents, need the reminder to enjoy the simple tasks that slow us down and force us to live in the moment.

What do you think about the remix? Too much, or do you want more?
