Bob Keeshan, AKA 'Captain Kangaroo', Dies at 76
This guy...look, I grew up watching his show, and laughing at 'Bunny Rabbit' (even had a puppet just like it) and at 'Mr. Moose' and his ping-pong balls. I recall Mr. GreenJeans and his talks about things. Dammit, I miss that show...one of the last children's shows that wasn't an advertisement for a toy or just plain inane. This is also the man that created and played 'Clarabell The Clown' on the old Howdy Doody Show, for those that can remember back that far. And all this from an ex-Marine.
This was the kind of show I'd have HAPPILY Let my children watch. We miss you already, Bob...rest easy.
