    My brother was on Romper Room back in the day. Captain Kangaroo sort of scared me. Not in a terrifying way, but the same way Mr Rogers Land of Make Believe scares/disturbs me.

    If you're from the Phila area, one can't mention Captain Kangaroo and NOT mention Captain Noah and his Magical Ark or The Gene London Show. Both shows kicked CK's butt.

    Counting flowers on the wall,
    That don't bother me at all.
    Playing Solitaire till dawn,
    With a deck of fifty-one.
    Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo.
    Now, don't tell me I've nothing to do.

    Great show. Grew up watching it every morning. I heard he recently did an appearance. I have a bobble head of him on my desk at work. Found it down here in New Mexico.

    Okay, while we're at it, anyone remember the Soupy Sales show? My brother and I enjoyed that one.

    That was a local show, though, in the Chicago area.

    I haven't tried it recently. Also you have to understand, I was a very uncoordinated kid. It took me years to figure out how to comb my hair, I couldn't coordinate my brushing action with the reverse image in the mirror. Strange, I know, but that's how it was, I think I was 8 or 9 before I could do it myself.

    Did you know that Captain Kangaroo was Clarabelle the clown on the original Howdy Doody show?

    Did you know that weatherman Willard Scott was the first Ronald McDonald?

    agreed

    I guess the "Now" in Now-Playing doesn't mean what I thought it did.
