That's sad, and sad for anyone who can't see the full range of colors. However, his world was his normal. He certainly coped!

Never knew that

I didn't know that either. And yet, he was able to show children all the beautiful colors in this world.

I just googled "Mister Rogers" and clicked on "images". Sure enough, the two sweaters he wore most often were either red or green.
