Yea, a sad day indeed. I used to watch him to, it was nice to come home to a genuinely nice guy after dealing with my mean peers all day. Kind of funny how many power boaters watched him?

I THINK MR. ROGERS WAS AN ICON TO BOTH CHILDREN AND ADULTS. CHILDREN LOOKED UP TO HIM TO LEARN AND ADULTS LOOKED UP TO HIM FOR FORGIVNESS OF THEIR SINS, IF THEY CHEATED ON THEIR WIVES AND HUSBANEDS! but didn't tell each other. THANK YOU!!! {WORD TO THE MOTHAAA!}

I watched him EVERY day as a kid.

They say immitation is the highest form of flatery. I give you Eddie Murphy:

"Let's put mr. hampster in the microwave. That's called severe radiation boys and girls. Can you say severe radiation? I knew you could."

Mr. Rogers will definitely be missed.

Mr. Rogers, Kaptain Kangaroo and Sesamie Street were staples of my childhood.

LOL Foul, I live when Eddie did Mr. Robinson.

One of the last eople who genuinly liked children. Not someone who just wanted a little boy to "cuddle" up to.

He will be missed by many.
