Mr. Rogers Flipping the Bird…it Happened but was Innocent [Video]
For many years, rumors have gone around that Fred McFeely Rogers (Mr. Rogers) flipped kids off on his tv show.
The truth is, he did...inadvertently. He was singing "Where is Thumbkin" with children and, when he got to Tall-Man, he proudly displayed his middle fingers...because that's how the song played out.
Oh, and McFeely (Mr. McFeely was the "Speedy Delivery" guy) was Rogers' middle name.
