  1. As a child of the 2000s I don’t remember him. But I feel like I actually have seen him before. Did he have his own tv show that was brilliant, or endearing?

    • He revolutionized child education and entertainment. I watched his show all the time. I was a child of the 80’s myself.

    • Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood was(… I dunno, reincarnated?) into a horrible show called Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. I could just think it’s bad because my sister liked it, but whatever.

    • If memory Serves, it was a sweater vest, or something like that. I know he switched out one at the start of every episode

  2. This brings a little tear to my eye. I saw the documentary film about Fred Rogers when it came out and it was the most warm and wholesome thing I’ve ever seen on a movie screen. And the thing that just floors me is that I have yet to hear of any skeletons in his closet, which seems like some kind of divine intervention miracle in these days, where every single person anyone has ever heard of has about 50 books written about them explaining how they were a horrible human being in all actuality. Increasingly, it feels like the most impressive thing about Mr. Rogers is that he *WASN’T* a bad person and in fact, all indications are that he was as thoroughly wholesome a man as he appeared to be.

    I wish we had people like that in public life. Everyone being a scoundrel with dirty secrets really wears you down.
