Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
As with any kid my age my young childhood was dominated by two forces: Sesame Street and Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood.
Later on I’d get into Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, but for that early time in my childhood you couldn’t ask for a better role model. Mr. Rogers was the kindly grandfather we all wish we had and in a lot of ways reminded me of a grandfather role-model I did have growing up. But Mr. Rogers, along with his puppet friends, taught me about using my imagination for the first time while Sesame Street was more focused on introducing me to sharing and counting with a vampire. And eating cookies.
So, thank you Mr. Rogers. Every time I see an old man take off his shoes I’ll think of you.
Thanks to Lawrence Martin for bringing this shot to my attention.
