Mr. Fred Rogers the host of Mr. Rogers. Neighborhood - Photo courtesy of PBSMr. Roger's Sweater - On each episode of MR. ROGERS' NEIGHBORHOOD/NET/PBS/1967-92, Fred Rogers, the soft-spoken children's program host, would enter his TV home and change from his street clothes to more comfortable lounging clothes which consisted of a sweater that zipped up the front and a pair of sneakers. He followed with his classic invitation of "Won't you be my neighbor?"

On November 21, 1984, one of his sweaters (an orange one) was put on permanent display at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. All of his sweaters over the years were made by his mother who would annually created up to 12 new sweaters for her celebrity son. All sweaters were equipped with zippers, a favorite of Mr. Rogers. Can you say Zipper?
