Fred McFeely Rogers, better known as Mister Rogers, was an American educator, Presbyterian minister, songwriter, author, and television host. Rogers was most famous for creating and hosting Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (1968–2001), which featured his gentle, soft-spoken personality and directness to his audiences.

Although he never acted in any Disney productions, one of his songs "I'm Growing" was heard in Honey, I Blew Up the Kid. At one time, Disney-MGM Studios had three tile mosaic portraits featuring Rogers, Jim Henson, and Burr Tillstrom in the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame. All three have since been removed.

The 1973 Disneyland Records album Songs from the Mister Rogers TV Show consists of cover versions of songs from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
