Joanne Rogers Talks About Mister Rogers on Jimmy Fallon 2018

Joanne Rogers Shared the Heartwarming Reason She Fell in Love With Mister Rogers

It really is a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and who better to spend it with than family of Mister Fred Rogers himself? Joanne Rogers stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on June 12 to talk about Won't You Be My Neighbor? and discuss her late husband's public legacy and their private memories.

She sweetly reminisced about her time getting to know Fred, saying he struck her as "different" while they were young but also "lively and fun." Joanne said he would talk to her about his feelings, and she felt comfortable doing the same, sharing the things that bothered them and the things they loved.

"You can't build a friendship without doing that," Joanne shared. "Don't you need a friendship to fall back on through your married life? We had it for 50 years, so that's nice."

Aw! Check out the video above to learn even more about Fred's life behind the scenes (including the meaning behind his fascination with "143"), and make sure you grab some tissues before you watch the trailer for Won't You Be My Neighbor? — you're going to need them!
