* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[Website/FourChan 4chan]] is, without question, a blazing inferno of soulless evil. And insulting Mister Rogers is ''an instantly bannable offense''. That's right -- Fred Rogers is ''too sacred for '''[=4chan=].'''''

** The Internet is a very raunchy place, but [[BerserkButton try to make fun of this man]] and the HiveMind will ''eat you alive.'' Insulting Mr. Rogers will get you insta-banned on 4chan. [[WretchedHive 4CHAN.]]

** Fox News got a rather large chunk bitten out of it when one of their pieces suggested that Mister Rogers and his message was somehow a bad influence on children because he instilled concepts like self worth beyond material possessions and encouraged deeper thought and curiosity rather than blind obedience to more capitalistic pursuits. To say that people's response to this broadcast was overwhelmingly negative and critical of Fox is like saying that the sun is sort of warm.

* RetroactiveRecogniton: A 1975 episode had a troupe of acrobats perform for King Friday's birthday. One of the acrobats in question? A young Creator/MichaelKeaton, who actually worked as part of the show's floor crew before he left to pursue an acting career.

** Fred Rogers liked Eddie Murphy's parody of his own show, "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood." To be fair, it was an AffectionateParody, not deliberate and malicious mockery. Apparently, Eddie Murphy caught up with Mr. Rogers and told him, "You understand, we only do it because we love you."

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: While the show was never [[{{Anvilicious}} overtly preachy]], author [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-g-long/the-radical-politics-of-mister-rogers-ten-fascinating-facts_b_7064322.html Michael Long]] has observed that Mr. Rogers often quietly advocated social values that were well ahead of their time, including supporting racial and gender equality in the 60s, criticizing the Cold War arms race, and advocating nonviolence during the Gulf War. As one example, the character "Mayor Maggie of Southwood," played by African American actress Maggie Stewart, debuted in 1974, 14 years ''before'' the first African American woman became mayor of a major U.S. city in real life.

* ArchivePanic: There are a total of ''1,005'' episodes through the show's entire run, counting both the black-and-white 100 originals that were on EEN and the 905 that were on NET/PBS. At 30 minutes a piece, that would run 502.5 hours total, or nearly 21 days nonstop. Of course the show is very self-contained per episode and isn't meant to be watched over a long term (obviously aside from the 5 episodes that make up a week of the same topic), but still, if we want to be completely real here, there's probably no way you're going to make it through all of this.

** An infamous opening gag in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' featured Stewie terrorizing the Town of Happy and trying to kill Mister Rogers; even series creator SethMacFarlane thought it wasn't funny. Even so, Stewie's rampage turns out to be a DreamWithinADream, and it's Mister Rogers who gets [[MemeticBadass the last laugh]].

** Even when ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' parodied Mr. Rogers, they were ''quite'' cautious to avoid anything ''too'' out of character. Some people don't find the skit very funny, while some find it ActuallyPrettyFunny

*** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXEuEUQIP3Q A specific example]] of Memetic BadassPacifist was when he spent six minutes talking down congress from cutting PBS funding with 10 mill. dollars. It resulted with them increasing the same amount instead, as if he rolled 20 for diplomacy check.
