It’s always a beautiful day in the neighbourhood, even half a century later. PBS is teaming with Twitch once again to stream every episode of Mister Rogers Neighbourhood, in celebration of the show’s 50th anniversary, as well as what would have been Fred Rogers’ 90th birthday.

In a press release, Twitch announced it will be livestreaming all 856 episodes of Mister Rogers Neighbourhood. Since it’s partially to celebrate the birth of the man who brought joy to millions of kids, the livestream will start with the show’s 90 greatest episodes, followed by a complete run of the series. This isn’t the first time Twitch has done this – a similar livestream happened last year as a PBS fundraising event. It won’t be raising money this year (there will be a “call to action” on the official page, we’ve learned), however, this time Twitch users can add their own commentary by co-streaming it on their channels.
