Mr. Rogers Breakdancing

Check out this terrifying/uncomfortable/homo-erotic/incredibly awkward/slightly heartwarming video of Mr. Rogers learning how to breakdance. And just so you're not too disappointed, we only get to see him do the moonwalk, and that thing where you move your arms and body in a wave-like motion.

He sucks at both.

Personally, I don't remember this episode, although it looks like it would have been from around the time I was watching the show. When was breakdancing invented? 1981?

Is it possible that this episode aired when I was too old to watch Mr. Rogers?

Man, I'm getting old.

In any case, it's super-creepy, and the racial undercurrents practically explode from the screen.

Thanks to David for bringing this great video to my attention.
