Actually, not much is cut at the beginning. Just up through the title of the show. It always reverts to the specific episode in question by the time Mr. Rogers starts singing. Still, a pretty stupid mistake. Also, as one of those adult collectors, I would have preferred more episodes from the era when I actually watched the show (roughly the first few years) rather than all these 1980s/1990s/2000s shows. But I understand at this point, a lot of people remember those. But I never would have seen them when I watched the show as a kid.
