Hey, have you been to Google today?
I saw that it was a Mister Rogers doodle, but I only just now had time to watch it. How great that is!

Mister Rogers Knows That You Are Special from 1969. There are some skips in this recording, but still it is very listenable.

Mabel Mercer sometimes was on Mister Rogers, and she'd sing for us. Lady Aberlin would call her her pretend aunt, calling her Aunt Mabel. This is the song she sang today. The performance on the show was in my opinion better, only because the music part really was a bit gloomier and heavier than here.... But the lyrics are strangely soothing, anyway, which is why I wanted to share this. Mabel Mercer, Lazy Afternoon

P.S.: She sang a second one just now, called Children On the Carousel.

That's interesting. I wouldn't have imagined the first song Mister Rogers, but the second sounds very characteristic of the show.

This is so much reminiscent of Princess Leia that one wonders if this was an inspiration.
