Happy Birthday, Mr. Rogers by RustedRabbit Happy Birthday, Mr. Rogers by RustedRabbit
That's right, March 20th is Mr. Roger's birthday. So I wanted to draw something this year to commemorate a wonderful, genuinely caring person. Why is he a pony? Cause I didn't have enough time to design a human caricature and the more you read about this guy the more it seems like he was born in super-happy ponyland.

Plus, drawing ponies is fun :) I assume Scootaloo is telling them a super-awesome story about Rainbow Dash and how epically amazing she is, while Sweetie Belle proves once again that she can't NOT be adorable.

Anyway, here on March 20th - first day of spring (not that you can tell in Canada) and the birthday of one Fred Rogers (and many, many more people - remember this; whoever you are, someone, somewhere, likes you just the way you are. Here's a good pick me up if you're ever feeling down;

Him, Bob Ross, Carl Sagan, Julia Child... I'm only learning about these even-tempered and wholesome Americans now. *Sigh.*

If there was any one person who would get ponyfied and not only not have a problem with that, but also encourage it to continue to spread his knowledge and love to others, I can't think of it being anyone other than Mr. Fred Rogers.  R.I.P Mr. Rogers, no matter how good or bad a day we had, you'd always be there to be our neighbor.

If Fluttershy and Mr. Rogers teamed up on Discord, I think he would be 100% more reformed than he is now. (He's not nearly as bad as he used to be, though I still think he has his moments. So if Mr Rogers had gotten ahold of him too, Discord would have finished his 180, I'd say. heh.) Anyway, this is just...wonderful. I like this and shall take it to heart. I wish Mr. Rogers was still with us so that he could continue to be our are missed, sir.

Mr Rogers as a pony. All arguments are invalid.
