Title: John Heinz
Post by: Paul on September 17, 2011, 02:44:54 PM
Most of you probably know that HJ elephant was named after Fred Rogers' friend John Heinz (H.J. Heinz II). If you look in the credits of 1539 it says "Special thanks to Heinz U.S.A. (a division of H.J. Heinz Co.)"

Do you think there's any connection?...

The Heinz History Center has the wax statue of Fred.
