    I was never a fan, though my brothers watched him.
    Sad to see him go though, as a gentler, kinder soul would be a rare find.

    Too bad there aren't more like him and less of the politicians and generals.

    Not surprising you never heard of him Wiggo. He wasn't the type of TV personality to get busted shoplifting or picking up hookers.

    He did a kid's show in the states called Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.

    He was big in the eighties.

    The article covers it pretty well but they are way of the mark when it says that he was the butt of comedians jokes. The jokes never actually made fun of the show they all made fun of society, gov, etc.

    The only not so great thing is that I vaguely remember him bringing religious onto the show once or twice in a general way. I.e. if something bad happened it would be like ?and remember kids god loves all of you? etc

    My ex husband used to do an adult inpression of him, It was very funny. But I'm sure that I have seen the mans show, ........at least a few times in the early years.

    Know also that in a privately published book in which,
    i believe, Barbara Walters interviewed him; when ask why he never had children on his show he pointedly stated that he was unable to tolerate kids at any age younger than 18, which was also his reason for never having been married as it would be utterly senseless to him when procreation was the major concept behind the ideology of the institution of marriage. Paradox:
    a big kid who refused to grow up & lived with his mother untill her death; Host of the longest run childrens TV show EVER.........And
    he hated all children in his presence!!!! Conflict of interest, i don't

    Were you aware that he was a Presbyterian (I think that's it) Minister? 'Cause it kind of goes a long way to explaing that:?:

    Nope, had no clue as to his religious affiliations, until I read that article about his death.

    Being Agnostic I didn't really appreciate the references.

    Interesting stuff Dryad, I didn't know any of it.
