NPR's Cokie Roberts is shown in her home office in 1990 with her dog, Abner, and cat, Tabasco.

As Morning Edition marks its 40th anniversary, the show revisits some of its perfect imperfections.

Among them is a blooper from 1990, when Cokie Roberts' basset hound, Abner, demanded his breakfast outside her home broadcast studio. The unscheduled appearance turned Abner into a public radio folk hero. Listeners couldn't get enough.
