I wish we had more Mr. Rogers' in the world.

And it's the sort of prank he would like anyway, because nobody is humiliated.  Just the wrong shoes in his usual spot.

Watching him as a child, you knew he was kind and trustworthy.  Everyone dies but I wish he was around for my kids.

My absolute favorite show as a kid. As a child, it was most definitely "appointment television". Him, the Electric Company, and 3-2-1 Contact.

"Thank you so very much", he says.

That's his reaction.

That's Mr. Rogers.

I was in school already by the time he started so I never watched him. I grew up on Captain Kangaroo and Romper Room.

That crew didn't realize how lucky they were. Mr Rogers was a trained commando and could have killed them six different ways without even breathing hard.

So, is the takeaway supposed to be that Mr. Rodgers has really big.... feet?

Exactly. This wasn't about harming or hurting someone. It was just the unexpected and something as minor as switching up the shoes.

My one moment of poise like that came when our daughter was around 2. As every parent knows, there's a little cough that wee ones come out with that means dinner's coming back up. So, we'd just turned out the light in our room when the tell-tale cough came. I was like Usain Bolt getting to our daughter's room and was >*< this close to getting the garbage can in place before she painted the walls (and me). Whatcha gonna do? Clean up later is what you do.

And you know what that means!... He is able to get good deals on shoes in the clearance section.

We have Dolly Parton. Think of her as another Mr. Rogers, but with a better rack.

Little known fact, Jimmy was found that afternoon strangled and 'not so happy a day now is it' carved in his chest with a knife.

MY son actually got to hear him talk in person when he was in college.  He said the line for autographs was extremely long.  This was back in 2000 or so.

RIP Mr. Rogers...you are missed.

I saw the prank pulled on Mr. Rogers by Candid Camera (I think it's on the youtoobs). He was speaking at a convention of some sort. The "bellboy" who took up his luggage to his hotel room showed Mr. Rogers the amenities, then the last thing he told him was that the tv didn't work. Normally, a celeb would have pitched a fit.

Mr. Rogers told the guy, "Oh, it's okay, young man. I never watch television, anyway."

Like. A. Boss. Like a wonderfully kind & loving boss.

We miss you, Mr. Rogers.

Look, everybody here has never doubted that he was your kid. But it appears that might be a conversation you want to have with your spouse.

I own exactly two Funko Pops.

He is one.

From the trailer park of urban legends comes this gem.  No, T-Boy, he wasn't a commando, or a sniper, or a SEAL.  While he registered for the draft, he never entered military service.

Iiiiit's aaaaaaa
Beautiful day to wear my gimp suit
A beautiful day to lick Mistress's boot
Would you whip me?
Ah yes, thank-ye!
Please may I have another?

Sadly the best Mr. Rogers blooper reel is not available anywhere publicly.

Gives the name Rogers an additional meaning.

There must be a way to get the old library. Mr Rogers can be around for every kid. Forever.
