Think Muppets, or Nickelodian and then think 40 to 50 years ago, and Bob Keshan, as the friendly, gentle, funny, story teller, Captain Kangaroo, was ours.
There were regulars on his show, Mr. Green Jeans, who, correct me if I am wrong, was Tom Posten and many other characters.
Classic quality childrens programming, a precursor to and model for all others to come.
We love you Captain.
That was my 8 year old self stopping by for a reprise.
