Revealing mistakes: In the 1979-1981 episodes when Mr. Rogers takes his sweater and closes the closet door, he'd often close it too fast so it came open a ways, but then the closet door begins to close on it's own, as if someone were behind the door pulling it closed.See more »
Mr. Rogers:Here are some things that some children gave me and gave me a good suggestion to go with them. This is an empty milk container and they said it could be an apartment house. Good idea? This is an empty oats box. They said it could be a tunnel. What about that? And this is a cottage cheese container. It could be a lake. Let's just take these things to the sand table on the other side of the kitchen.See more »

One of the best men who ever lived, 16 September 2005
Author: Christopher Pike from Luleå, Sweden

Mr. Rogers did what few artists have done in the history of mankind - strengthened and supported his audience so profoundly and so generously that he became a transformative force in their lives. I feel fortunate to have learned from him. In all too many homes, Mr. Rogers was and is the only voice of understanding, gentleness and positive reinforcement. Imagine how different our world would be if more young people could be exposed to his philosophy of acceptance and love.

There are so many children who never hear their parents say the words "I love you" - not once, not ever. And then they hear Mr. Rogers sing of all the ways people say "I love you," like "the cooking way" and "the eating way," and it's a comfort and reassurance beyond words. No other public figure provides this kind of life-changing insight to the people most in need.

On behalf of everyone you helped, of all the souls you touched in a badly damaged world, Mr. Rogers - we thank you, and we love you.
