Mr. Roger (not to be confused with Mister Rogers' Neighborhood) was a 1986 series of animated shorts about a man who always tried to catch a ride on the subway, but some silly obstacle would prevent him from reaching his destination.

These 20-second shorts were produced by Belokapi, Cofimage 7, and Initial Group in 1986 and commonly aired on The Children's Channel in the UK and parts of Europe, as well as on CBC in Canada.

Although 100 episodes are said to have been produced, only a few of the shorts have resurfaced online, and barely any information can be found on the series at all.

These shorts aired for an incredibly long time in Canada. I can recall seeing these on CBC Newfoundland as late as 2001-2.

i dont think its group but groupe

i was looking for these shorts and then i found a movie review for a movie by initial groupe and they made THE SAME MISTAKE even though groupe was on the cover and initial groupe is a FRENCH company AND on they're imdb they're oldest movie is a year before the shorts and they were both a production and Miscellaneous Company and 22 second shorts are pretty miscellaneous if you ask me
