Won’t You Be My Colorful Neighbor?

Fred Rogers of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood had a colorful career and a colorful honor to go with it. In 1996 he was honored by the Binney & Smith factory in Easton, Pennsylvania when he was chosen to pour the 100 billionth Crayola crayon.

The special crayon was created in the limited-edition color Blue Ribbon. The commemorative replica of the crayon can be found at the Fred Rogers Archive in Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
