If you grew up in the 1970s and 1980s, then you probably remember the television show called “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.” There were a few educational things on the show, such as teaching children how to share and about different jobs in the community. Overall, it was somewhat odd, and there are a few weird facts about Mr. Rogers that you might not know about.
He always explained everything in detail because he got a letter from a little girl who was blind. If she could hear what he was doing, then she could imagine it in her mind. This allowed her to see the show like other children.
Each sweater that Mr. Rogers wore was made by his mother. Everything on the show had to be in a perfect order as he was extremely picky about the way that the set would look.
The man who played Big Bird was asked to be on the show to reveal his identity and to talk about his job. He refused to give up his job because he didn’t want children to know about the man behind the Big Bird legacy. Mr. Rogers received 40 honorary degrees. He was colorblind, which meant that he didn’t know what color of sweater he was getting out of the closet when the show started.
