The fourteenth season of Mister Roger's Neighborhood debuted in November 1983 with a five-episode arc titled "Conflict", a direct response to the ABC telefilm The Day After, which featured graphic nuclear-war imagery. This arc focused on the Neighborhood of Make-Believe where they almost go to war by jumping to conclusions. Due to both the episodes and news of the time involving war, the arc was pulled from regular rotation on April 5, 1996.[1] The only footage of any of the "Conflict" episodes that has resurfaced after 1996 is in a five-minute YouTube video which was uploaded by the user fwbh, as seen below. On May 1, 2015, a sets of screenshots from the "Conflict" episodes have been found by TheDoctor64, via the Neighborhood Archive.

On March 20, 2017; a user by the name of TROG SLEEP NOW uploaded the first two episodes of this five episode miniseries to YouTube.

The Episodes

  1. Mr. Rogers goes to see a toy bank collection and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe wants to buy a record player for their school, but King Friday finds out that Corny is making parts for Southwood.[1][2]
  2. Mr. Rogers visits the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia to see how coins are made. But in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, however, King Friday jumps to the conclusion that Southwood is making bombs.[1][2]
  3. Mr. Rogers demonstrates a Brailler then visits a cave to see the petroglyphs of an earlier civilization. Meanwhile Lady Elaine in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe wants to prove Southwood is peaceful. [1][2]
  4. Mr. Rogers makes marbles and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe sends a peace keeper to Southwood and finds out they are just making a bridge.[1][2]
  5. Mr. Rogers shows how record players are made and Neighborhood of Make-Believe has a peace festival and it prompts Keith David to help the school at Someplace Else.[1][2]

To me, there is absolutely no excuse for this to be lost. The arc was pulled from regular rotation about 13 years after it's intial debut. Someone must have recorded these episodes after all those years in regular rotation

In today's world where nuclear war can happen, I feel like this episode should be shown to teach today's kids that there's nothing to be afraid of.

These episodes were taken down due to copyright, but luckily I downloaded them before this happened. I'll work on uploading them somewhere so they don't go missing again.

Has anyone actually approached The Fred Rogers Company and let them know about the interest in these episodes? Perhaps they could be made available legally online.

Hiya! I wrote the original article back when we were still on wikia two years ago (Albeit it was edited massively because I couldn't format for the life of me at that time). Hearing about these episodes being found (I heard the news yesterday) really warmed my heart knowing that there's still interest in this. Thanks LMW for keeping up the interest and for helping me format the original page.

Keep circulating the tapes, folks. Have a great day and may the lord bless you all.
