When: Weekday Mornings - 7 or 8 a.m. (changed with the seasons)
What: Captain Kangaroo
Where: CBS (WANE TV, Channel 15)
I have never been a morning person. One show I wouldn't mind waking up for though, was Captain Kangaroo.
I loved Mr. Green Jeans...I love when Mr. Moose would tell a knock knock joke and the punch line would lead to ping pong balls falling on top of the captain. I loved my dancing bear, I loved the town clown.
I loved this opening which ran in the late 60's and early 70's (it never failed to amuse me).
When they 'sexied' up the intro song, I was even okay with that.
Mr. Moose & a knock knock joke
This is a clip with Mr. Green Jeans - from 1978 - but hey - what would a posting about Captain Kangaroo be without a glimpse of Mr. Green Jeans?
The Dancing Bear!!!
Remember the Town Clown?
