Someone Made a Documentary About TV Superstar Mister Rogers
Someone made a documentary on ‘Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood’ superstar Fred Rogers, who passed away in 2003.
The guy was a REAL LIFE neighbor of Mr. Rogers and the documentary, ‘Mister Rogers & Me’ is about some of their interactions.
One of the more memorable ones was when Mr. Rogers dropped this bit of wisdom on him: “Deep and simple is better than shallow and complex.”
The documentary was actually finished in 2010, but it didn’t have a real theatrical release. Yesterday, it came out on DVD and was made available on iTunes. For more information, visit the movie’s website: MisterRogersAndMe.com.
