"Won't You Be My Neighbor?" is a song that served as the opening theme of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, as written by Fred Rogers himself.

An instrumental of the tune played in Sesame Street Episode 1575 over an establishing shot of Mr. Rogers on the street.

Big Bird sang the song at the 2003 Daytime Emmy Awards as a part of a tribute to the recently deceased Rogers. He previously sang a portion of the theme song in Episode 0894 while filling up the silence during David and Maria's lunch (in which they wish to be alone).
