Mr. Rogers goes to Washington


have you ever wondered who would win in a no-holds-barred, bareknuckled and broken-bottle barroom brawl between Fred Rogers and the U.S. Senate? say, circa 1969? you know, when tricky dick was more interested in sending money to a deeply misguided war than funding public broadcasting and the arts at home? have you?


i sure have! here's the resounding answer.

watch it to the end. absolutely gorgeous.

Thank you for finding this great piece. What a beautiful man to care so deeply about the emotional health and development of our children.

Way to go, Mr. Nice Guy. You went and made me all sad and teary-eyed, missing Mister Rogers. My older brothers, myself, and my son all grew up watching his show. Such a genuinely kind and caring man. Thanks for the clip.

I saw that one on Sweetney when she posted it and was going to also link to it from my blog. It brought tears to my eyes. I have a lot of gratitude to Mr. Rogers for, among other things, convincing my son that he would not go down the drain with the bath water. He had the touch, that man.

Thank you so much! We love Mr. Rogers in our family, and every time we even talk about him it is with tears in our eyes...I remember my mother watching this show with my sister and I...and then watching it with the grandchild she is raising. It's nice to be liked for who you are isn't it?

I like how he used the same voice to talk to senators as he did to the kids on the other side of his camera.

Mr. Rogers was an amazing man. There will never be another like him, and the world is a sad place because of that. I miss him.

Great piece! I NEVER knew he was the voices to the puppets. How cool is that.

Really? The Lady Elaine puppet always kind of freaked me out as a kid because you could so tell it was his voice; he didn't really try to Lady it up much. I now realize I must have assumed Lady Elaine was a transvestite.
But yeah...last night my partner and I realized if Rogers hadn't gotten that extra 20 mil in '69, our childhoods might have been without him.
