"Welcome, friends, to this special place. . . ." Those are Mister Rogers' dulcet tones, but this isn't his usual TV locale. Can it be? Fred Rogers is on the 'net? Yep. The "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" Web site launched Tuesday and it's as quietly reassuring and gently fun as you would expect from the soft-spoken PBS icon.

For just this weekend, a Pittsburgh neighborhood that's lain dormant in boxes and under plastic coverings for nearly a decade is coming back to life. Everyone important will be there in Mister Rogers' Neighborhood of Make-Believe: Daniel Striped Tiger, X the Owl, Henrietta Pussycat -- even Mr. McFeely. The set is being rebuilt and opened to the public Saturday and Sunday, giving generations of Americans who grew up with Fred Rogers -- as well as their children who watch his reruns -- a look at one of TV's most famous neighborhoods.

Three decades after Fred Rogers took to the airwaves, it's still a beautiful day in his neighborhood. Children's television has moved on, though. "The style of all other children's shows are Technicolor sugared cereals, and the style of Mr. Rogers is a warm bowl of oatmeal," said Robert Thompson, director of the Center for the Study of Popular Television at Syracuse University.

Standing on a makeshift podium along Hollywood Boulevard, his voice low and soothing and mellifluous, television icon Fred Rogers led 200 well-wishers through a song that has become a standard for generations of American children: "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. . . ."

Wide-eyed respect, even reverence: that's how grown-ups, from taxi drivers to TV stars, often react to Fred Rogers. If he wanted to, the PBS television icon could exchange his role as host of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" for that of professional guru, offering jaded adults his trademark affirmations of self, inner quiet and respect. It's not likely to happen, however.
