Surprising Unknown Facts About Mister Rogers
He played a preacher on the TV show, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.
When Fred Rogers appeared on television, he almost always played as himself. In fact, he took pride in being his authentic self, whether he was on television or not. He said: “One of the greatest gifts you can give anybody is the gift of your honest self. I also believe that kids can spot a phony a mile away.” The only time that he did not play himself on television was when he played a preacher on Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman in 1996, a Western-inspired show that focused on a woman doctor. This aligned with his career and education as an ordained minister.
