    As reported on CNN:

    Rogers began developing his ideas for children's programming in the 1950s. He is best known for "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," which began in its early form in 1963 as a show on the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

    Rogers took the idea to the United States and in 1967, the first "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" aired on Pittsburgh's WQED. A year later, PBS picked it up.

    In 1954, he began working at WQED, a Pittsburgh public television station, as a puppeteer on a local children's television series, The Children's Corner.
