Title: Andy Wyeth Mystery Appearances
Post by: nsg1980 on August 30, 2018, 06:42:11 AM
Hello all,
   I am a newcomer on the message board but I have been following the archive for several years and I love it.
     Being a Mister Rogers fan since I could walk, he has taught me to appreciate many different interests and topics that he featured on the show. Especially introducing me to The Wyeth family art. I remember seeing clips from episode 1217, I believe of a man on the show that was Andy Wyeth. I don't know if this was discussed in years past, but I don't know who this man was on the show that was Andy Wyeth. Let's look at the facts. Andrew Wyeth was born in the year 1917. By the time episode 1217 hit the air, that would put Mr. Wyeth around the age of 55. That man on the show looked extremely young. I had to make sure and watch the clip from this episode to make sure Mister. Rogers introduced as Andy. Sure enough, as we all know, he did. I wanted to make sure he did not say Jamie Wyeth. That would be Andrew's son who looks nothing like this man from that episode. Furthermore, which adds to the mystery is that this man also appeared in episode 1210 where Mister Rogers receives a parking violation. He is seated in the courtroom.
    I am completely baffled by this. I still absolutely love Mister Rogers' Neighborhood and will always watch the shows. But can anybody shed some light as to whom this mystery man is?    Thank you. :)
