The internet has been eagerly awaiting any news of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, the biopic based on the life of one Mr. Fred Rogers. Mr. Rogers helped to shape the way many Americans learned about the world as children.


He encouraged loving one another and treating everyone with respect and, unlike many others at the time, this included loving those society discriminated against.

Tom Hanks portrays Rogers in the film, which is due to release on November 22nd of this year.

Fans haven't gotten much of a look at the film, as there is still no trailer, but the studio has released a couple of photos of Hanks in character.

In honor of what would have been Mr. Rogers' 91st birthday, another photo of Hanks has been released.

The photo shows what will be a familiar scene to anyone who grew up watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood: Rogers changing his shoes upon entering the house at the start of the show. Rogers always changed out of his jacket and dress shoes, and into a cardigan and tennis shoes, at the start of every episode.


There were quite a few tears shed over the photo.




Some appreciated Rogers' and Hanks' contributions to the world.

Hanks being cast in the role was a popular subject as well.





Many are eagerly awaiting November 22nd!



If anyone is feeling extra nostalgic and wants to revisit one of their childhood favorites, MisterRogers.org posts 5 episodes every other Monday for viewers to stream from their website.

Or treat yourself (and your children) to the entire series.

Additionally, the extraordinary documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor (which was ROBBED of an Oscar nomination last year) is available for purchase. (Be wary; I sobbed my way through it.)

Fred Rogers spent his life encouraging children to treat each other with love and courtesy, and taught valuable life skills through his television program. There are few Americans who don't cherish their memories of their beloved neighbor.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

"What is the worst way you've been woken up?"

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
