It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood. A beautiful day for a neighbor. Won't you be his? Won't you be his? Well you don't have a choice because Mr Rogers is officially The Most Neighborly.
After a contentious final round against neighborino Ned Flanders, Mr Rogers triumphed and took home the title. He made it to the top of a bracket full of well known neighbors like Mr Feeny, Arthur Fonzarelli, and Squidward Tentacles. In head to head matches during the bracket he crushed Mario parody Fix it Felix, annoying super-genius Steve Urkel (along with Stefan Urquelle and Bruce Lee Urkel), noted inventor and underwear model Cosmo Kramer, and chocolate expert Ethel Mertz.
In the end, Mr Rogers is the perfect neighbor. He's kind, courteous, and genuinely cares about you. He also will teach your kids all of the lessons you can't because you aren't as good of a person as he is. And all his neighbors agree. Henrietta Pussycat, Daniel Striped Tiger, and even his majesty King Friday XIII always welcome the company of Mr Rogers.
Thank you to everyone who voted on the bracket over the last couple of weeks. You can check the whole thing out here. If you liked the bracket, make sure to like us on Facebook and Twitter and subscribe to our podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, Soundcloud, and Google Play for updates on our future brackets.
The next one is our Game of Thrones themed bracket, The Last House (so a pretty big tonal shift from Mr Rogers Neighborhood). The goal to determine which house you think will be that last House standing in Westeros (and to a lesser extent Essos). We talk about that bracket, as well as give our thoughts on the Mr Rogers win, on our most recent podcast which is embedded below.
