The fourteenth season of Mister Rogers' 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 have 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 set 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.
