I never watched Mr. Rodgers. His train and puppets scared me, and my mother thought he was an annoying fuck.
I think he was a wonderful man. I'm so glad I can share him with my child too.
The world would be a nice place if everyone was like Mister Rogers. I have read numerous things written about him, and to a person everyone said he was just like Mister Rogers in the real world just as much as he was on television. What a magnificent man.
Oh, and I have WAY too many teddy bears in my house. I have yet to use one as a deadly weapon though.
I agree. He was amazing. I lurve him muchly.
And LOL. Yeah.. I've thought about using one for violence, but I can't say I've ever followed thru. ;)
Oh, I grew up loving Mr. Rogers! I was going to marry him. Then he brought his wife and sons on one of his shows and I was so furious and heartbroken that I wouldn't watch him for a whole entire WEEK! The video made me cry, too.
lol, and tears are deadly?
Oh, Mister Rogers! I loved that show. It was so educational and and entertaining and comforting when I was younger. Old School Sesame Street (when they still had all those marvelous musical interludes and Grover rocked out with his Super Grover self), 3-2-1 Contact!, and Mister Roger's Neighborhood were the cornerstones of my childhood. Well, that and Wild America, that was pretty cool too.
Wow, I can't thank you enough for posting that video. It was exactly what I needed. It made me cry...but in the good way, you know? Much love to you and Mister Rogers.
I cried in the good way too. *HUGS* I'm so glad it was welcome.

Oh. I loved Mr. Rogers so much when I was a kid. I even got kind of choked up when he passed away a while back. He was neat!
I always had to see him and the Fraggles. They were my 'must watch' shows.
I can see how teddy bears can be deadly weapons. You can start beating someone with it and make them die laughing. Also, there are smothering capabilities. Er...not that I've ever thought of them. No. Not me. O:)
LOL! I hadn't thought of the smothering possibility.
I suppose you could beat someone to death with a teddy bear, but it would take a really long time. I think your average criminal would probably select a more standard blunt instrument.
And Mr. Rogers always seemed like a nice guy, but I wasn't allowed to watch him as a kid. Our church felt he was demon possessed.
Are you for real? Your church prevented Mr. Rodgers!?
I always wanted to be Mr. Rodgers' neighbor. And he wanted it too! So why didn't it ever happen? *sadface*
Also.... Damn Michigan. Damn it straight to hell! *shakes a fist at people who say stupid things and shame the state.
Aww, Symbolism. :) *hugs*
I guess you could give a teddy bear sharp claws and nobody would look past the adorable button nose...
Or fill it with rocks?
