Jeff Erlanger Visits the Set

Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

Mister Rogers’ visit with Jeff Erlanger, the boy who uses an electric wheelchair, is the classic episode that Fred Rogers often referred to as one of the most treasured moments in the studio. While Mister Rogers acknowledges Jeff’s disabilities, he also helps children know that people with disabilities have many abilities. Jeff joins him as he sings, “It’s You I Like.”
