The fourteenth season of Mister Roger's Neighborhood debuted in November 1983 with a five-episode arc titled "Conflict", a direct response to the ABC telefilm The Day After, which focused on life before, during, and after a full-scale nuclear war between the United States and Soviet Union, in a disturbingly-realistic fashion. This arc focused on the Neighborhood of Make-Believe where they almost go to war by jumping to conclusions. Due to both the episodes and news of the time involving war, the arc was pulled from regular rotation on April 5, 1996.[1]
