Free McFeely Rogers(not joking -- that's his name) graduated from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and was ordained a minister of the United Presbyterian Church in 1963.

He said, "I went into television because I hated it so, and I thought there's some way of using this fabulous instrument to nurture those who would watch and listen".
Yeah, somewhere along the line.
