** "Conflict", aired in 1983, concerned the Land of Make-Believe going into a panic after King Friday becomes convinced that Corny the Beaver is building a nuclear arsenal. At the time, [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped this was a very relevant plot]]; after all, it was UsefulNotes/TheEighties, one of the most tense periods of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar. The five episodes from this week were pulled from syndication in 1996, partially due to controversy and partially due to [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp not being quite]] [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece as current anymore]].

* OldShame: Given how it was Mr. Rogers that requested the ''Conflict'' episodes be not repeated ever again (well, depending on what your source of information is; there has never been any straight answer given by the company), one wonders if Fred suddenly regretted writing and filming it the way he did, or realizing if the episodes could be taken out of context, only after production for the week's episodes wrapped.

* CommonKnowledge: Despite rumors, he was never a sniper, nor was he ever in the military, nor did he wear the sweaters to cover up his tattoos. Most now agree that this rumor came about because someone got Mr. Rogers and [[Series/TheJoyOfPainting Bob Ross]] (who did serve in the Army- to be precise, the USAF) mixed up. Additionally, the appearance of the militaristic-sounding ''Chicken Fat'' song (which Coach Saunders lip-synced to) in Episode 22, an early black-and-white episode of the show that was last broadcast in ''1970'', could've also helped in the formation of the urban legend.
