Before They Were Stars: Michael Keaton on “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”

While struggling in his early days as an entertainer in the 1970s, Michael Keaton took a job as a cameraman for a public television station in Pittsburgh and eventually became a production assistant on the one and only Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Keaton would make the odd appearance on the show, including this sketch about a flea market auction, where he plays one of the telephone operators. You can first see come onto the scene at the 1:25 mark of this clip. He’s the guy wearing a plaid jacket and giant red bow tie.
