Mister Rogers passed away 10 years ago today. He may be gone but he's certainly not forgotten, especially in our house where my four-year-old daughter and I watch a Mister Rogers' Neighborhood clip almost every night. To honor the memory of everyone's favorite neighbor, here are 10 clips from those "how it's made" tours that were always my favorite.

1. Toothpaste!

2. Pretzels!

3. Graham Crackers!

4. Crayons!

The most famous factory tour taught us how crayons are made. You can find that over at PBS.org.

5. The Incredible Hulk!

6. Milk!

7. Cheerios!

[Start at the 3:00 mark.]

8. Fortune Cookies!

Watch and learn at PBS.org.

9. Rubber Balls!

Another one only available at PBS.org.

10. TV Shows for Soviet Children!

There are likely hundreds more where these came from. What was your favorite episode?
