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...

*Sigh* If Twilight Zone doesn't get released on DVD it will be a crime. A CRIME I TELLS YA! I loved the Perfect Family episode. I thought it was excellent and had an AWESOME ending.
