Meow Meow Meow Meow Meow Meow Meow Bullshit!*

Quick: What's the worst idea for a sequel you've ever heard? You can tell me. Just whisper it at your monitor.

Really? That's the worst sequel idea you've ever heard? Hell, that's nothing! I have one worse than that:

A decade after children’s classic Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood ceased production, PBS has just announced an animated spin-off to the series hosted by a familiar personality from the original show. Titled Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, the series will have original Mister Rogers characters grown up and with children of their own living in the Neighborhood of Make Believe. Four-year-old Tiger (son of the original Tiger) will be the star. The “next generation” concept intends to use the musical education strategies pioneered by Fred Rogers’ landmark original program, which was in production from 1968 to 2001 and continued airing on PBS until about three years ago.

They had to go and fuck with Mr. Rogers, didn't they? They couldn't even leave Mr. fucking Rogers alone. Assholes.

* The headline of this post reads "I can't take much more of this bullshit!" in Daniel Tiger-ese.
