Ismael Moncada : I wish Bob Ross would've visited Koko. Maybe they could've painted together, and that would've been beautiful

Joe S. : Mr. Rogers. A class act all around.

SecondAdam Bomb : When Koko brings you in for a hug, you're going in for a hug.

1Fastpaced : I'm reading the comments and Koko is a better person than most of you are. :l She's not even human.

Richard O : To all the idiots bashing on her trainer for "forcing her to talk about love", I am sure Koko got to meet Mr. Rogers for more than 46 seconds. And in that time she probably got to speak freely about the cuff links. You guys will fight about anything.

Whoami691 : "What's that?" Holy shit... Did Koko just ask a question!? This is huge, no species other than humanity has ever been recorded asking questions about a certain subject, it shows a willingness to learn. This gorilla is special, truly special. I think she may have just broken a boundary there. No experiment ever conducted has ever recorded an ape making 'small talk' yet there it was.

dcw 490 : We need more people in the world like Mr. Rogers. It would be a less hateful place.

filmnoir50 : RIP, Koko and Mr. Rogers - two species, one message of love and caring. These are two beautiful beings whom I wish were still here.

Aon Brogan : Mr. Rogers is the reincarnation of Jesus Christ I am almost certain of that. There has never been such a kind hearted man to have ever existed.

zack ferguson : The most violent species in the history of Earth is us.

oliver miller : What if mr rogers was the second coming of jesus and no one noticed?

EasyThere Pilgrim : Everyone loves Mr. Rogers.

Bob Ross : I'm not a religion man, but someone PLEASE canonize Mr. Rogers as a saint.

Roberto Simeone : wish you could live forever Koko..

matt25675 : man that would be so trippy...having a non human creature grab you with hands like that

Ethan Savickas : Mr Rogers: A Saint

Seth Ronalds : you know what I like? Mr. Rogers actually talks to Koko. not down to her, but actually to her. when she asked a question, he was talking to her like he would to you or me.

bradc002 : At this writing, both Koko and Mr. Rogers have passed away. Nice to see them both here. RIP to both.

A. J. : i really miss mr. rogers :(

Cindy J : I wish I could have met Mr. Rogers...... and Koko also.

TrailRatedNurse : I am amazed that Koko asked a 'what' question. I have read that no ape has ever been observed asking a question; Joseph Jordania is one such published work on this topic. When did Koko develop this cognitive skill?

Frodo H : So adorable

Tina Tyler : damn that Coco and dammit mr. Rogers you're both so beautiful you make me cry I know there's a special spot in heaven and in the spiritual world for both of them

SeleDKa : Koko is soo cuute...and so emotional!! Just like... a real human. Wow, it's really cool. Hello from Russia!

Ungoverned Truth : Hello Neighbor

Senpai's Special Play Toy : Dammit, if Mr Rogers was still alive he would be a great Ambassador or President! Imagine him singing with Putin, David Cameron and Kim Jong Un!

Phoebe Congloebe : Sadly both Mr. Rogers and Robin Williams, both good friends of Koko, have passed away a few years back, but Koko is still alive and well. Whenever it's Koko's time of passing, I hope she realizes that she's in good company. :)

Lex : I love Mr Roger's too 💕💕

Mr.Nice Guy : Honestly I want to be just like him

Kaelyn Armstrong : I happy cry every time I see a video with Koko

NomadRepublic : "What, honey? Oooh, she's saying love, good, love, Mr. Rogers squeeze my nipples or Koko snap neck"

SWLinPHX : Koko's bond with Mister Rogers shows she has the innocence of a child who would watch his show.

Fuzzyscarfandmittens : Mr Rogers was actually her favorite celebrity. She watched him every day. And when he showed up here she had him take off his shoes because that's what he always did when he came inside. Koko was actually fangirling all over him.

MrGameAndPlay : when  kokos  senpai notices

Ell monroe : beautiful....and I think he was quite relieved when koko grunted and the lady said thats a happy sound!! phew.wonderful wonderful.

Elizabeth Elliott : That Sun cufflink was handed down to Mr Rogers from his grandfather. It was very special to him, it seemed. And the gorilla went right for it. That gorilla could feel someone else's emotion and happiness and sense of connection. That was brilliant.

Allykins17 : Rest In Peace, Koko. I hope you meet with Mr. Rodgers and Robin Williams again up in Heaven.

A2Z11tree : My friend used to live down the street from Mr. Rogers when he was younger ahaha
