There are all kinds of stupid rumors about Fred Rogers floating around. None of them are true. Check out www.snopes.com

Sorry, here is my serious answer. You really should learn to validate your facts before stressing over an obvious hoax or posting it on a public website.

Better?

i heard he was a heralded army sniper and the reason he always wears long sleeves is to cover his sleeves of tattoos on both arms.

That's the one I heard I had also heard the pedophile one... Glad to hear it's not true.

Absolutely appropriate. You should check your facts before propogating rumour and innuendo over the net.

I think the one who made that up was president of the MRAFC (Mr. Rogers Anti-Fan Club) - if it exists, that is.

This is the sort of rumor-mongering that really irks me. The first question one should ask is, "Is this even remotely plausible?" Considering that Fred Rogers was sixteen years old when the marines landed on Iwo Jima, the answer is clearly "no".

Sorry, but this is really a pet peeve of mine.

Well I'm sure that Captain Kangaroo was a war hero, I wasn't sure about Mr. Rogers

Actually I think that one is true. A link was posted quite a while ago to a youtube video (that is now taken down maybe because it's copyrighted) and Mr. Rogers did play trumpet (well, cornet) and Mr McFeely takes a tour of a trumpet factory.

I remember one where he visited the Empire Brass, and that entire episode was brass-related (except for the make-believe part, I think). Anyway, I think he played trumpet on that episode, too.

It's all communist propaganda. These guys were the finest and were singlehandedly responsible for the defeat of the Japanese empire. You are either for us or against us.
