A nagging head scratching question.. episode 1217
« on: March 20, 2017, 07:10:41 PM »
In episode 1217 Mr. Rogers is visited by Andrew Wyeth. I am living on the coast of Maine near-ish the famous Olsen house and in a town with a museum with a Wyeth wing, I know my Wyeth. Now 1217 was taped in 1972, but Andrew Wyeth was much older in that time period, and the gentleman on the show looks younger and resembles Jamie Wyeth (andrew's son). Was it really Andrew or was it Jamie? The person looks way too young to be Andrew... or was it a stand-in?

I'm guessing the film was older than the episode.

Okay so I can clear this up since Andy Wyeth is my cousin. Andrew Wyeth is actually Andy's uncle.  It was not Jamie - that is Andy's cousin. Andy is the son of Caroline and Nathaniel Wyeth (and Nathaniel is the brother of Andrew Wyeth). Hope that clears things up.
