richlmo Obit: Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan, 1927-2004) (39) RE: Obit: Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan) 23 Jan 04

I feel like I have lost a relative , he was such a HUGE part of my childhood. I loved every thing about the show. You really didn't mind being sick , home from school, because you got to watch the whole show! Mr. Moose, Mr. Greenjeans, Grandfather Clock..
What I remember most were the books he read, " Cats,Cats,Cats", might not be he right title, but if you are still reading this, you remember,too. And , "Stone Soup"...., I found this book for my daughter , 20 years later, but it wasn't the same one the Captain read.
Mr. Rodgers was a loss, but " The Captain" was the original.
There is no doubt that he is in heaven.
