I was cleaning out my much-neglected RSS feed today and came across this gem on YouTube, but credits go to the Mental Floss blog for digging it up.
It’s Mister Rogers, the episode where he shows you how crayons were made. Crazy thing is, I swear I remember watching this! I know it’s highly unlikely that I actually remember something from watching TV roughly 25 years ago, but hey. I was a HUGE fan. Knowing me, I watched the episode 20 times or something.
So, here’s the clip:
And, as a bonus, here’s what Mental Floss says is one of their most popular blog posts of all time: 15 Reasons Mister Rogers Was the Best Neighbor Ever. (I wonder if the show is on DVD so my kids can watch?…)
Edited to add: I checked and it appears that PBS still airs the majority of episodes. Since I am mostly unemployed, it appears I have a new show to add to my daily lineup! The show’s website is here. PLUS, you CAN buy DVD’s, and this one even comes with a red sweater. Adorable!
