    Big Mister Rogers fan during my pre-school years, but I was always confused by Lady Elaine. Was she an ugly old woman...or an ugly old man? The name never stuck in my head, just the visual.

    Either way, Lady Elaine obviously liked booze. Look at that nose!

    Mr Rogers was Yoda to Mr Dressup's Skywalker. True story!

    Rusty and Gerome were on display for years at the CBC Museum. What irritates me a little is I found out after Bob Homme died that a) He lived close to me and b) HE LOVED IT WHEN PEOPLE VISITED. AGGGHHHH!

    We had some solid children's entertainment up here, and I would have visited Bob too if I had known he'd be okay with it. Bimbo, on the other hand, is a little scary in retrospect. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moVmHzcawvw

    We had a Mr. Rogers exhibit come to our Strong Museum of Play here in Rochester. It was awesome. They sold wooden trolley cars, repro puppets, Mr. McFeely's children's book. My daughter was the right age, and we bought a ton. Unfortunately, that was years ago, and I don't think much of it survived.

    I got to meet Mr. McFeely at a Con in Niagara Falls a few years later. He was in costume, and had no one at his booth, so me and my brother had an awesome chat with him about Michael Keaton's start on the show, and his collaboration with George Romero's crew.

    I wondered about that, watching a youtube clip.

    One of my great regrets, though I live only a few hours from Pittsburgh, is that I never had an opportunity to meet Mr. Rogers.

    She does! I was slightly scared of her when I was very young--she was brassy.

    Ha! I grew up with the son of an Uncle Bobby cast member. Bimbo still haunts my dreams as does the accordian lady, I hated her!

    I forgot all about Bimbo the Happy Birthday Clown until I stumbled upon a YouTube clip a couple years back. That creepy thing must have given some kids nightmares. *shudder*
