Mr. Rogers Takes Breakdancing Lessons from a 12-Year-Old (1985)

February 13th, 1985 shall be remembered as a truly beautiful day in the neighborhood, for that is the date on which Fred Rogers learned to breakdance (sort of). In no time at all, 12-year-old instructor Jermaine Vaughn had Mr. Rogers waving, moonwalking and learning how to press play on a boom box so he could demonstrate some “very fancy things” regarding the first pillar of hip hop.
