Steph and Ayesha Curry Are Already the Best Couple of 2016 — Here's 17 Reasons

VOTE: Was Mr. Rogers Crazy Or Cool?

I used to look forward to the daily puppet shows on "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." They were off the hook. Now that I'm older, I can't help but wonder about the ritualistic behavior the man demonstrated at the beginning and end of every show. Mr. Rogers was on the air for just under 40 years and he never changed the routine! Check out this clip and ask yourself: was Mr. Rogers crazy or cool?

I loved that man. He was straight-up crazy cool. That's why he was so awesome! The other day I let the little boy I take care of watch Mr. Rogers for the first time (he's not usually interested enough in anything on TV to watch for more than a couple of minutes) and he was completely enthralled. So now there's one more Mr. Rogers fan in the world. :)

I loved Mr. Rogers! I still remember my little kid ritual of Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers every morning before school...the Land of Make Believe is about the cheapest production you can find, but I still loved it.

Haha, yeah, if I KNEW the guy and he was ALWAYS like that, it might be a little hard to deal with. But for an hour (?) a day, he was awesome. The ritualistic part is kind of 'age old' kid-raising stuff. Just getting used to doing some of the same things every day helps kids wind-down and know what to expect. He used his show to teach kids about all kinds of things. And I've heard several times that in *real life* he was super cool, too.
