* During the first season of the show, Mr. Rogers engages in a song with children that involves raising fingers on his hands...[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ic4mEc_6JQ8 and ends up giving the finger on air...twice!]] What makes it funny though, is that he clearly realizes how it looks, and even grins to the camera. Quite possibly the only time ''ever'' where Mr. Rogers did something that could be interpreted as offensive, even if it was completely without malice or any intent to offend.
