Sad news to talk about today. Bob Keeshan, who entertained and taught millions of children over 30 as Captain Kangaroo, has passed away. His family is only saying that his death is due to a long running illness.

I loved Captain Kangaroo. My generation is probably the last one who really knows who he was. With Mr. Green Jeans, Bunny Rabbit and Mr. Moose, I watched his show almost religiously. I loved it when the ping-pong balls would fall from the sky. Along with Mr. Rogers and Sesame Street, Capitan Kangaroo was one of my earliest teachers. Bob Keeshan will be greatly missed.
