Most people have heard of Koko, the Stanford-educated gorilla who could speak about 1000 words in American Sign Language, and understand about 2000 in English. What most people donâ€™t know, however, is that Koko was an avid Mister Rogersâ€™ Neighborhood fan. As Esquire reported, when Fred Rogers took a trip out to meet Koko for his show, not only did she immediately wrap her arms around him and embrace him, she did what sheâ€™d always seen him do onscreen: she proceeded to take his shoes off!
I never watched the show, since I was in school, but now wish Iâ€™d known him. Link
