There's a wonderful reason why Mister Rogers always said aloud he's feeding his fish

By

On Feb. 19, 2018, "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," turned 50 years old. And the internet was feeling feelings over it.

After premiering on Canadian TV in 1963, Fred Rogers' beloved children's program debuted in the U.S. in 1968, inspiring generations of kids across North America to be more thoughtful, kinder neighbors. 

One person feeling the feels on the show's anniversary was model, author, and Twitter goddess Chrissy Teigen. 

Teigen tweeted the most delightful anecdote about why Rogers would often announce that he was feeding the fish during the show.
