Sunday-viewing of the portraits without the crowds allowed a look at chalk artist Kati Texas' "Ugga Mugga" – her creation for sponsor KEET-TV. "Ugga Mugga" means "I love you" and comes from children's programming on television. Daniel Tiger from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood has a song called "Ugga Mugga means I love you" and the term also dates back to the children's show Mister Rogers Neighborhood where Daniel Striped Tiger and Lady Aberlin used Ugga Mugga as a way to say they loved one another, in an episode that aired on April 8, 1958.
