  • Captain Kangaroo teaches small children about the world around them in a manner that is easy for them to understand but is never condescending.

    Before Mister Rogers, before Sesame Street, there was Captain Kangaroo. To give an example of how influential a show this was for children, I'll relay a personal story. I don't necessarily recall many details of a lot of old shows I've seen. One that I remember clearly however was an episode of this show that I watched as a very small girl in which the Captain had an owl expert on as a guest. That was where I first learned that an owl can turn its head all the way around. Or at least I went through life thinking that's what I had learned. Apparently it turns out owls can't really do this, it just appears that they can because of the way they turn their heads. But the point, I guess is, that I remembered seeing the owl on the show, and it fascinated me and has stayed with me all these years. :)
