In 1969, Fred Rogers appeared before the United States Senate Subcommittee on Communications. His goal was to support funding for PBS and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, in response to significant proposed cuts by President Nixon.
Mr Rogers was a hipster.
@rsandoval89 and your saying they werent doing that back in 1969? lol
anyone who disagrees, should be shot. or maybe we could just talk it through
he sounds like Cleveland from Family Guy lol
Yes. There should be a Like button and a Love button.
@kagasan2008 : You mean his shows aren’t being replayed? They bring back other shows but not one as impactful as this one? Unbelievable!
@auggiedoggy I’d say even having the dislike button on this video to be to much.

My hero. Surely he’s an angel on earth.
@GenghisKhan44 freakin love Mr Rogers
@rumpranger65 you read The Bible?
@NobudeezDaughter i grew up on him. i hope this generation of kids do as well.
He looks like Jimmy Stewart!
@sluggo06 Aye. A Presbyterian. A man of God. And it bled into his personality.
God bless Mister Rogers. : )
@treysongzhtown You aren’t the only one, mate. I watched him religiously when I was very small, and he’s still special to me. Good memories.
Such an incredibly adorable man, lol.
@jrjastud I could play him by merely talking in a slow, psychopathic manner and fondling kids
“I care deeply about children”
heh heh heh what a dirty old man
i dont think rogers ever got angry once in his life. he just kept his cool.
@thescaryman Hell yea! We could all be chilling just like Mr.Rogers is if it was Legel. I can just see him wearing a tye dye shirt.
right on. i couldn’t agree more.
The only person that could ever play Mr. Roger’s in a movie would be Jimmy Stewart. Two of the greatest and most humble men to ever live.
@rsandoval89 I agree with your sentiment, but I think actually this was part of a larger debate in which war was a very relevant issue. I only know a little about the context here, but it appears Nixon’s impetus for slashing the PBS funding (the reason this hearing was conducted in the first place) was, at least in part, to help pay for the Vietnam War. I see children’s TV and education not as a “better thing to debate” than war, but as a better side to take in the debate. Yay love. Boo war.
Thank you Mr. Rogers! We were lucky to have you in our homes. R.I.P.
@BRYAN351 If the History Channel is ‘free to watch’, then how come I don’t get it on my TV? Doesn’t matter anyways because I wouldn’t want that big yellow H always on the screen.
