Continuing on in my childhood television show theme songs this morning is none other than Captain Kangaroo. Captain was played by Bob Keeshan. He also played the parts of Mr. Doodle, the clown and Mr. Pennywhistle. It ran on CBS from 1955 to1984. The show was built around the treasure house where the Captain would engage kids in lessons using skits with people and puppets. My brother and I loved this show. We drank a lot of tang and ate sugary cereal many a morning watching the Captain. A great childhood memory. picture from google pictures, information verified on wikipedia

I never liked Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans. Just me I guess.

I loved this show too. My husband grew up in Danville, IL and they did not have Captain Kangaroo. Poor guy.
