Fred McFeely Rogers, from Latrobe PA is best known for his show Mister Rogers Neighborhood.
Originally educated to be a minister, Rogers started to perform on and write for TV because he was displeased with the way TV addressed young children.
Mister Rogers Neighborhood began in 1968 and lasted until 2001.
Rogers started each show the way he did in the video; by coming into his home while singing the theme song “Won’t you be my neighbor?”, and changing into his famous choice of cardigan and sneakers.
Care to emulate Fred’s outfit? With a bit of an update that is…
And if you really want to be dedicated, throw on a tie. (Also, I realize I don’t have a zip-up cardigan in the layout, but pretend that I do).
“If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
-Fred Rogers : )
