In 2017 I tuned in to the "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" marathon that streamed on twitch.tv. I was particularly waiting for a scene I'd remembered all my life. (I was four when it aired.) Here's that scene, from the first season, episode 109. I can certainly see why it made such a big impression on me. The respect that is given to Daniel's emotions; there are no words spoken for such a long time. The beautiful, honest performances by Betty Aberlin and Fred Rogers. Amazing that so much time could be devoted to such a small and yet huge moment on children's television.
