There was always a quiet, somewhat melancholy charm to Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’s opening theme that drew you in and put you in the right headspace to drift off to the Land of Make-Believe.

In celebration of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood’s 51st anniversary, Google’s reimagined the show’s opening sequence in a gorgeous stop-motion animated clip that blends the fiction and realities of Fred Rogers’ work into something magical.

If that wasn’t enough of an emotional gut punch, why not check out Won’t You Be My Neighbor?
