Flashback Friday: Mr. Rogers Interviews The Wicked Witch Of The West [VIDEO]
I just stumbled upon this online, and it was too surreal not to share. Mr. Rogers sitting down and interviewing the actual Wicked Witch of the West from 'The Wizard of Oz!'
Actually, it's a pretty sweet interview from 1975, where Mr. Rogers has a visit from Margret Hamilton, the actress who played the witch. They talk about her experience on the film, and she gets dressed up in her costume to show kids who might be scared of the witch that it was all pretend, and they had nothing to fear.
They both also make sure to mention that on Halloween, both boys and girls can play witches, which is a great message that still has meaning today.
