Rumors that he was drowned under a large pile of ping-pong balls have so far been unsubstantiated.

RIP, Cap'n. :(

Was I the only one that thought he died several years ago?

Anyway, Thanks for the memories, Captain.

I say this constitutes a reason for a Bereavement Day to be taken.

That sucks. Captain Kangaroo was a great entertainer.



Wait…if it’s MLK Jr. Day AND Pat Patterson’s Birthday…who gets the token win here?-- Matt "Excalibur05" Hocking on a match between Mark Henry and Rico

MH: What’s a clever way to say that I have a penis?
CJ: Uh…Mark, nobody’s going to buy that shirt.
MH: How about if I say that I’ve got…a…uh…?
CJ: Coming up with T-Shirt ideas is hard Mark, why not leave it to the WWE marketing department.
MH: I know! I’ve got it!
CJ: Got what?
MH: Stank! That’s Mah Stank! I’m gonna make a fortune!!
CJ: “That’s Mah Stank”?
MH: On the front it’ll say “Can You Smell It?” and on the back it’ll say “That’s Mah Stank”. Everybody’ll buy it because they’ll think it’s a Rock shirt.
CJ: You know…you might be on to something there, sad to say.
MH: I can’t wait to show mah stank to Trish.

You know, I have a feeling that Spanky didn’t quit, he was fired. Why? So they could repackage Mark Henry as “Stanky.” Think about THAT!

Unlike most of you, I saw him when he started. It was great fun watching him as I grew up. It was totally different then anything else out there. RIP.

That would have been a fitting end...

Good luck Cap'n.

Mr Rogers, and now the beloved Capt! How sad! I was going to bring a carat cake to the wake, but it fell in the oven.

So sad. I'll miss him, and all the knock-knock jokes he had with Mister Moose.

RIP.

As a tribute, PBS needs to put out some "Best of Captain Kangaroo" DVD's, man.

I'm gonna miss you, Bob Keeshan.

Me too. And I was surprised that he was just 76 - I woulda guessed 10 more. Everyone here does know he was Clarabell on Howdy Doody, right? Well, I wasn't around for the start of Captain Kangaroo (that was 1955, and I was a mere twinkle until '57), but I saw a lot of the Captain, Bunny Rabbit, Mr Moose and Mr. Green Jeans.

Happy times. In Chicago as a kid, Ray Rayner, then The Captain, then Mom's boring soaps, then Bozo! Afternoon- Garfield Goose and the Cubs! (and if a rainout, then Bob Bell(Bozo) as an old man running Stooges one-reelers) A Kid, a summer, and only 4 channels!

I was young enough I don't remember *much* of the good Captain, but I remember him being as much of a fixture of my preschool TV viewing as Sesame Street, Mr. Rogers, 3-2-1 Contact!, and The Electric Company.

Damn. Ping pong balls...

The time you wear them also depends on what you do. If you do what the doctor asks (rubber bands, headgear at night, retainer afterwords) then you'll stay right on track. If you play sports at all, get a mouthpiece.
