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.

My son and I LOVE Mr. Rogers. He learns to sing and dance from this show, and my son is deeply in love with the TROLLEY. It's such a wonderful show for children. I agree that he has that soothing/calming effect to counteract the weirdness of the make-believe neighborhood. That make-believe neighborhood is..err..something else. :)

Most aspects of the show were great for kids, he was calming and educational...on the other hand those puppets always gave me a weird vibe and looking back at them now pretty much terrify me! I'm surprised I didn't have daily nightmares!!
