Mr. Rogers eyebrows in 1979-1981
« on: October 20, 2012, 07:15:20 PM »
Anybody notice that from 1979-1981 Mr. Rogers had grey hair, but his eyebrows were still as dark as they were in the pre-79 era?  Did he use eyebrow makeup, or did his hair naturally age faster than his eyebrow hair?

I always thought there was more hair on his eyebrows then, like during the Divorce week.

Probably from natural aging. It seems his eyebrows began lightening around 1982.

Strangely, he also had the darker eyebrows in the Games week.

I wonder if maybe Games could have been taped earlier, and not used until 1983?  Are there any other clues?

Somehow, i think that's highly unlikely, since it has some elements of other episodes that aired around that time and was under Paul M. Lally's direction (and it features Fred Strother, whom as far as we know appeared as ealry as the Discipline week), but at the same time, it does make a little sense. 1511 and 1513 give Hugh Martin credit for "location segment" direction and the 1979-1983 Prince Tuesday puppet and early Charles Altman voice do appear.
