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 focused on life before, during, and after a full-scale nuclear war between the United States and Soviet Union, in a disturbingly-realistic fashion. 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 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]

Lady Aberlin on Twitch

During the Mister Rogers livestream on twitch, users could ask Bettly Aberlin anything, sort of like an unofficial AMA. There is now a log of every message she sent, and some comments regard the Conflict episodes.
