The movie, Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, is a film based on a true life-events of two friends, Fred Rogers and journalist, Tom Junod. It tells a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism.
So basically, the plot is, after a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America's most beloved neighbor.
Such a beautiful and heartwarming plot, and we can't wait for the movie to come out. But, Jimmy had to ruin it for us! In Jimmy's own version of the trailer, it shows vengeful children's TV host captain Kangaroo using any means to hunt rival, Mr. Fred Rogers.
The spoof trailer tagline reads, "It may be a beautiful day in the neighborhood, but the night will tear you apart."

As the trailer progresses, it shows the 'Captain Kangaroo' lighting Roger's beloved puppet on fire. But to our knowledge, there is no record of the real Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan) ever lighting Roger’s beloved puppets on fire.
