Wednesday Trivia Question

What is the name of King Friday XIII’s son in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood?

If you grew up on Mr. Rogers or have watched the show with your children, you no doubt know the royal family of the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. King Friday is the imperious monarch but what was the name of his only son?

An easy one this week, I think. The answer is Prince Tuesday. Born in season three of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood to Queen Sarah Saturday, Tuesday was named for the day of the week on which he arrived. Interestingly enough, Prince Tuesday is one of the few puppets to “age” on the show. Originally, he was depicted as a baby (for obvious reasons). Later, he was a toddler and then, from the late 70s onward, he was elementary school-aged.
