Sixty-five years ago this week, a new children’s television show was launched on the CBS networok. Its creator was a man who had actually been part of the supporting cast of The Howdy Doody Show. His name was Bob keeshan. But the world knew him for decades to come as Captain Kangaroo.
I actually interviewed Bob keeshan twice. This interview was the second time, in early 1995. He had written a book for a book filled with ideas for activities they can do with their kids.
That as you’re about to hear, the captain had plenty of practical advice for happy parenting and happy kids.
So here now, from 1995, Bob keeshan.
Captain Kangaroo was seen every weekday morning on CBS for 29 years, then on PBS for five more years.
