…or at least the guy who played him, Bob Keeshan would be 84 today.

It’s Bob Keeshan’s birthday.

Captain Kangaroo

His show ran on CBS from October 3, 1955 until Decmeber 8, 1984.

He was a children’s television pioneer.

I loved that show.

Mr. Greenjeans, Mr. Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose, Mr. Baxter, Baby Duck, Kathy, Artie, Slim Goodbody…I miss them all.

I was three when it started and 32 when it went off the air.

I remember hearing the music and running to the TV and staying there the entire time.

Yeah, I miss it.  Kids today, they really do have it worse than we did.
