Check out Mister Rogers’ reaction to a little prank played on him by the show’s crew. It just goes to show what an incredible man he was!
Fred Rogers, affectionately known as Mister Rogers, has such a playful, delightful, and kind-hearted personality when everything is going his way. But what happens when his crew tries to trick him has everyone amazed.
During the opening production of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, nothing seems out of the ordinary. In fact, Fred doesn't seem to think anything is amiss as the music cues, and walks into his living room singing, "It's a beautiful day."
Fred continues to make his way to his bench where he takes off his walking shoes in favor of his house shoes. It's a scene we have witnessed in every episode but this time–Fred can’t put his feet into the shoes. And Mister Rogers’ reaction is just amazing!
Mister Rogers Has Best Reaction To Prank
At first, he continues to sing as he tries to fit the too small shoes onto the first foot. But as he continues to push one foot in and try on the other shoe, he stops singing in favor of a good hearty laugh when he realizes the shoes aren’t his!
Chuckling, he realizes his crew is messing with him. He looks up at his crew and has the biggest, brightest smile on his face.
With a sparkle in his eyes, he takes the prank in stride and tries to guess who switched out his shoes. Then, his eyes land on one of the crew members by the name of Jeff, who happens to be wearing Fred's shoes!
The whole crew shared in the laughter and comical moment, too. It's obvious by Fred's reaction, there is no difference between his on-camera persona of Mister Rogers and the candid moments as well. He was his usual kind, good-natured self. It's exactly the kind of reaction I would’ve expected from such an inspirational man!
"By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." John 13:35
