There’s some sad news for millions of children.
Fred Rogers has died Thursday morning at the age of 74. Rogers died from stomach cancer.
From 1968 to 2000, Rogers was the producer and host of the famed children's public television show, "Mister Rogers Neighborhood."
The final new episode of the series was taped in December 2000, but the show has lived on from generation to generation in reruns.
Rogers composed his own songs for the show and began each program by putting on kid-friendly sneakers and a zip-up cardigan and singing "It's A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood."
