The Amazing Fred Rogers

What a truly wonderful man. Watch this video of Rogers defending funding for PBS to the US Senate. It's so powerful, there should be a film based on it. Maybe I'll make a comic about it? I love him.

But, why oh why, did he have to create Lady Elaine Fairchild?

She was such an alcoholic.

Oooh I love that video! It reminds me of Mr. Smith Goes To Washington

What a guy

Thanks for your comment, M.R.

He was absolutely magical. If you youtube "Fred Rogers", watch some of the other videos. He spoke to adult audiences the same way he spoke to us kids. "I'm so proud of you," etc.

I've inked a personal comic strip about my connection to Mister Rogers--I just need to color it, then I'll post it! Watch for it!
