    Funny, too, that the term "Collector" has taken on an entirely different meaning!

    This is why you can never make the serious collectors happy. I know this all acting so its fine.

    But when I saw Mr. Rogers ask to take over the kids game i was like really, you think its ok to steal from a kid? its bad enough you were distracting the kid while trying to play a game, but then you take it over for him? hey jerk, what about next time you're doing something that takes focus i come over and ask what you're doing. "oh you're really busy and cantbe distracted thats interesting. why is this so important to you uh huh uh huh i see. fascinating. does it annoy when i keep distracting you? why do you feel that way, lets talk."

    at least reimburse the kid you cheapskate. giving "free play" a whole new meaning. taking over kids games. oh for shame.

    But seriously it is nice he embraced the new technology instead of going all fuddy duddy lamenting things were better back in his day. Its nice to see some people welcomed the future

    Think I mentioned this before, I accidentally wound up being the only nurse at a juvenile inpatient psychiatric center for about a year-the rule was for the kids to call everyone Mr. or Ms. [insert last name].
    No way, I was Mr. Rogers(sic), and the nursing area was my Neighborhood, I had signs up and stuff, lol.

    There is a lot of pride in Pittsburgh about Mr Rogers. To us it seems a little off, but he seemed genuinely enjoyed the curiosity of children. This was a cool little piece of history, I don't remember seeing much game related stuff on public programming, aside from those terrible news stories.

    It seemed so normal in the 70's .... but man did that look creepy LOL

    "you press this thing up - and the carpenter goes up..."

    "Ok I get it kid, there's your dad - get out of here - that's my game" - - - "Franco, come get the cash out of the machine and put it into my trunk"....

    My favorite internet rumor is that Mr. Rogers was a combat sniper in Viet Nam.

    As with everything Fred Rogers did, I am certain that the game choice was carefully handpicked for nonviolence.

    The other cab there looks like Centipede, which is shooting but it’s insects fighting each other so it’s okay I guess? I grew up Catholic, not Presbyterian, so I don’t know where the line gets drawn.

    Really pleased to see the coin box and control panel. Thank you for posting this!
