Mr. Rogers is being brought back to life, although unlike every other dead celebrity, it's not via hologram -- it's via autotune.

In an attempt to pay homage to Fred Rogers/drum up some publicity for their company, PBS enlisted the help of video mash-up artist John D. Boswell to create a video of the late, great children's TV star. In it, Mr. Rogers sings about how you can "grow ideas in the garden of your mind," and reminds viewers that "it's good to be curious."

Between this and the Reading Rainbow debacle, we've really been able to relive much of our childhood in just a few short weeks.
