You Won’t Believe These Facts About Mr. Rogers

By: Josh Wolford - March 20, 2013

Today is the first day of spring. It’s still cold here. Stupid spring.

It’s also the birthday of television legend Fred McFeely Rogers.

Mr. Rogers was a wonderful and fascinating human being. And as Mental Floss shows, there are plenty of things that you probably didn’t know about him. Did you know his middle name was McFeely? I sure didn’t.

    I loved Mr.Rodgers he was a real person unlike the creepy Captain Kangaroo. My parents divorced and he filled an void.He became what i thought a father should be. Sesame Street was too silly or maybe I was too old (about 8)for it. I hope we could have more programs like his.So much now is violent or sexual. Look at the cartoon people, fully matured bodies and unrealistic sizes like Barbie. Let our children be children.
