Was a huge fan as a kid. My parents said I was way more into Mr. Rogers than Sesame Street or Electric Company
==============================================================

Sit down, neighbor, and hear of a man who did not conquer the world, but did it one better; he reminded us that the world needs unity rather than conquest. He walked among us as a man, although he was a hand-to-God saint. They say the difference between a saint and a psychopath is empathy, and Mr. Fred Rogers had an ocean of it, which makes him either the sanest man in history or the craziest hero we ever had.

If you're from some country that doesn't have puppets and never heard of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, it's OK! He loves you anyway. In fact, he'd want to introduce you to all of us so we could learn from you...................

Colin Hanks as Mr. Rogers on Drunk History

This is the first time that I thought that he looked like his father, but around 1:30 I totally see Tom's mannerisms in that

The old Cheech and Chong thing where Mr. Rogers interviewed a bass player was pretty good back in the day.

He is best known for what he meant to children. That was, after all, what Fred Rogers’s life and career were all about — every song he sang, every puppet he voiced, every considered word he spoke on his beloved television program, “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” Mister Rogers was for kids.

But he was for parents, too. For the adults who sat beside their little ones and watched the soft-spoken man in his handmade cardigan sweater model what communication with children should look like.

For the grown-ups who turned to his words time and again for advice about how to help their children through difficult times in their lives, or in the society around them.

Which might explain why Rogers has been having a moment recently — or, maybe, why his moment never really ended...........
