Chances are if you are a baby boomer you spent hours of your early life with this fellow. Captain Kangaroo was a daily visitor to homes across America.
On this day in 1955, Bob Keeshan, The Captain, signed on with a children's program that would run for two decades.
Who doesn't remember Grandfather Clock, Mr. Green Jeans, Bunny Rabbit, and Mr. Moose.
By the way, The Captain taught all his viewers to say "please" and "thank you."
