That's something we learn from Mr. Rogers, too!

14. In episode 63, Cornflake S. Pecially's (aka Corny) factory burns down! 😮

15. Mr. McFeely has a wife! He mentions that he is going to help her do the spring cleaning at the house. He says "Mrs. McFeely", and I'm sure he doesn't mean his mother! :lol:

16. In episode 114, Mister Rogers talks about getting an injection at the doctor. To further illustrate the point, Picture Picture shows Mister Rogers' last visit to the doctor, in which he gets an injection. Mister Rogers rolls his sleeve all the way up plainly debunking the internet rumor that he had previously been a sniper in the Marines and had tattoos all over his arms while in the Marines.

Something interesting about that number—I learned this awhile back: AT&T decades ago set aside a series of numbers for fictional use with that zip code and prefix; they're all dead numbers that can be used when someone is dialing on a TV show, movie, etc.

I actually appropriated one of those to use for filling in online forms. You know how when you order something online, they usually ask for your phone number. I never liked to give mine, figuring I'd start getting spammed with junk calls, and there was no need to anyway, since they have my email.

So I started using 311-555-2368 instead of my real number. :D (If you've ever seen the detective show The Rockford Files, that's the character Jim Rockford's telephone number.) :lol:

If you wanted to follow that same method, you could give Sarah's number! :D

That's an amazing idea!!!! I love it! ☺️
Yes, I was curious about the zip code (thought it may be a Pennsylvania zip code, since that's where the show was being broadcast from) but discovered that it was commonly used as a fictional one. Pretty interesting stuff!
