Tom Hanks is on the Trolley to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe! The Oscar-winner is playing Mister Rogers in a new biopic and the first image of him in the signature sweater and shoes of Mister Rogers has emerged. He … looks … perfect!

I was a big Mister Rogers fan but even more into Mr. Dressup. Did you know that we have Fred Rogers to thank for Mr. Dressup!? He actually started out his run as Mister Rogers in Canada on the CBC. When he moved here to develop the show, he brought Ernie Coombs with him to help develop the show. When Fred hit the dusty trail back to the States, Ernie stayed and went on to become Mr. Dressup! So cool that those two classics, went on to become such icons, and started out together. All these memories. Gets me right in the McFeelys!
Who would you like to see play Mr. Dressup in a movie?
