"Mister Rogers' Home Video: Dinosaurs & Monsters." Playhouse. $19.95. With his soft voice and gentle manner, Fred Rogers is a parodist's delight. Just ask Eddie Murphy. But laugh though adults will, the man knows his stuff in dealing with preschool children. Here, in the first of a series of tapes for the home-video market, he has repackaged material from his long-running public-TV show that uses the subjects of dinosaurs and monsters to help youngsters deal with their scary feelings. His message to young viewers, as always, is that they are OK just the way they are. So is he. Information: (212) 819-3200. 1/2
