There's been a bit of discussion about Fred being a vegetarian.

Here is a great article about Fred from the Vegetarian Times:

(He's on the cover too)

Again, I assume he was not a vegetarian in 1975, since Johnny Costa's mother gave him a meat pie in Episode 1455.  It seems he became a vegetarian sometime before 1978.  Does anyone know when?

Also, what other cast members are or were vegetarians?  I know David Newell is.  Anyone else?

 ;D That is a really kewl article. I always thought Fred Rogers was health conscious. I knew he was an avid swimmer, I wonder however, if Joanne and the boys also were vegetarians as well. thanks for the post. It was great.

Betty would probably know the answer to that question, so hopefully she'll read this.  Also, what other cast members were vegetarians, besides Fred and David.

I think Fred Rogers was always a vegetarian. He may have recieved a Meat Pie, but maybe he saved it for his family.
