A new Captain Kangaroo show? (Thu, 17 May 2012 12:00:00 GMT)
Children’s entertainer and clown Pat Cashin has reportedly purchased the "Captain Kangaroo" trademark and is preparing to shop a pilot of a new show modeled after Keeshan’s legendary show. Staffers have a web site, Facebook page, and children’s blog.

Still watching out for video (Sat, 18 Apr 2009 12:00:00 GMT)
Captain Kangaroo videos remain rare. Maybe someday, CBS will release recordings, if they exist. For now, I hope you’ll post a comment with news of any items you come across.

Alfred the air sick eagle, never liked being up high, So delicate is he - that heights make him dizzy And he never liked to fly Singing....(repeat and ending goes higher) It's a waltz, 3 4th time. According to virtual piano these are the notes: D# C C# D# F D# C, D# D# D# D# C# C C#, A C# A# C C# D# - C# C G# A# C C# C A# C A# G# G G# The at the end of the repeat, so he never li---ked to fly, C A# (below) C# F G# (Above) G G#

Some-not all-lyrics to Alfred the Air Sick Eagle:
Alfred the air sick eagle never liked being up high. He'd get in a tissy n heights made him dizzy, and he never liked to fly
My father sang it to me when I was a child because I'm afraid of heights

Don't know the name of my favorite song. First verse: Look there daddy, do you see. There's a bird in his tuxedo. No, that's not what it is at all. That's an animal people call a penguin. I see ... but it still looks like a bird in his tuxedo ... to me. I also remember a verse about a horse in his pajamas who was actually a zebra. There were a number of more verses. Does anyone remember the remaining lyrics?

Wishing for the DVD collection (Sat, 10 Nov 2007 12:00:01 GMT)
I get lots of questions about videos from the old TV shows, but there is practically nothing available. There are a few things on YouTube. We didn’t have VCRs back in those days, so there are no private collections. Keep wishing.

It sounds like the poem The Blind Men and the Elephant, by John Godfrey Saxe.

I was born in 1953. I always liked the books he would read, and the song stories, like Angus McFergus McTavish Dundee, and Albert the Airsick Eagle.

Does anyone know the book that he would read where they would play the Manhattan Beach March in the background? Seems like it was about a boy who couldn't stop reading a book he'd just gotten.

I get requests for a couple of photos. They are larger when you save them to your own computer.

Thank you! I loved Simon. But not many people remember Simon and his drawings. I am so glad I am not the only one to remember the words to the song.

Does anybody remember Simon from the Captain Kangaroo Show? He sang a catchy little tune . . . Now you know my name is Simon, and the things I draw come true; you can take me, take me, take me climbing over the garden wall with you. How do we still remember this stuff?!

Hello,

Captain Kangaroo is mu favorite television series! Actually, it was more than a series...it was a visit with my favorite television friends! I own some 16mm film kinescopes, which are incredibly difficult to locate. I've hear an unfounded rumor that videotapes of the series are located in an underground salt mine.

Ping pong balls fell at the end of a Mr. Moose knock knock joke. Who's there? Justin. Justin who? Justin time (for ping pong balls).

what prompted the dropping of the ping pong balls on the show?? We are all wondering and can't come up with it.

Commentary that used to be on the home page part 1 (Mon, 01 Jan 2007 12:00:01 GMT)
We continue to honor Bob Keeshan to this day for his tireless and sincere work for decent children’s entertainment. Those of us who were children in the 70s or earlier, and who remember watching the Captain’s show as children, now have children of our own. My own kids are young adults. We who remember that type of programming need to remind programmers that decent entertainment still has a place. While brash programming has its attraction for kids, young children are not necessarily looking to be smacked in the face all the time, and they"d be happy with gentler shows if only those shows were programmed and if only families tuned them in.

In retrospect, there are things I would change about the daily life in my household during the 1990s when my kids were young. But without a doubt, we tried to avoid certain types of TV programming, and we were successful to a degree. My kids experienced different types of entertainment in different places, but at home, there were certain shows that we watched. There were shows that my kids were not allowed to watch, and that resulted in some discussion, but overall, the kids enjoyed the decent programming that we could find.

Commentary that used to be on the home page part 3 (Mon, 01 Jan 2007 12:00:03 GMT)
The 2006 controversy over VeggieTales adds to the frustration for the decency movement. If you don’t want your kids to be exposed to religious messages, OK, but only a small minority of American parents are concerned about that. Considering that kids are inescapably bombarded daily with obscene programming and ads, it’s just stunning that NBC would censor generic religious statements from a show like VeggieTales that is widely lauded for it’s positive themes. The networks can handle the publicity resulting from a naked Janet Jackson or Desperate Housewife during a football game, so it's hard to believe they can’t handle the VeggieTales issue.

It’s not specifically ping pong balls or grandfather clocks that make Captain Kangaroo important. The important thing is that kids can be entertained and morally educated in a gentle way. When the Captain’s show ended for the day, you weren’t motivated to beat up your sister; you ran down to your buddy’s house to play. What is a kid motivated to do after a half hour of Ren and Stimpy splattering boogers all over the screen? Hurrah for the Captain.
