The beloved children’s TV host whose show spanned decades, is honored with his own postage stamp. The Forever stamp released Friday March 23rd by the US Postal Service.

The stamp, revealed during a ceremony at the studio in Pittsburgh where “Mister Roger’s Neighborhood” was filmed, depicts Fred Rogers in his standard cardigan along with his puppet from the show, King Friday.

The PBS show spanned generations of children and aired between 1968 and 2001. Rogers died at age 74 in 2003.

Inscribed on the top left of the stamp are the words “Forever USA,” which Postmaster General Megan Brennan said were the Postal Service’s “way of saying Mr. Rogers represents the best of America and will do so always.”
