Oh Captain, My Captain


FoxNews reported yesterday: Captain Kangaroo Dies at 76

John Cox writes: "Bob 'Captain Kangaroo' Keeshan (1927-2004) was my first TV hero. He created a place of unlimited creativity and laughter that still inspires me. Along with Mr. Green Jeans, the Town Clown, Grandfather Clock and Tom Terrific, I'll always cherish the warmth he exuded in those precious 30-minute visits to my childhood.

"I dearly hope that the Captain is in a place surrounded by children's laughter and the heart-felt love he generously bestowed on his adoring, baby-boomer audience."
