Episode Description

The Gorilla, KoKo, was taught sign language by Dr. Penny Patterson, an animal psychologist and eventually had over 1000 words in her vocabulary. When Robin Williams died, she mourned him, because he was her friend. KoKo also knew Mr. Fred Rogers. This month PBS aired a special program, Mr. Rogers: It's You I Like, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. One of the most powerful segments, was Fred Rogers interacting with and communicating with KoKo. She wanted to sit on his lap, but Dr. Patterson told her that she would crush him. So Fred hugged KoKo and at one point they were totally wrapped around each other. Of the 900 shows Fred Rogers did, the one with KoKo was among his favorites. At the end of their visit, KoKo signed to Fred, I love you. It was clear that Fred was thoroughly enjoying himself. He told his audience: "She really has feelings for people and things.” Please join us Thursday to learn about the wisdom, compassion and souls of animals.
