That stamp will be unveiled today (March 23rd) during a ceremony at the studio in Pittsburgh, PA where Fred Rogers created and filmed his show.  The stamp show his in the signature cardigan sweater alongside his puppet friend King Friday.

Mister Rogers widow will be on hand as will the man who played Mr. McFeely the deliveryman.
