Happy Birthday Captain Kangaroo

Susan Moore, TSM

In chatting with friends recently, we asked each other, ‘Who is the most famous person you’ve ever met?’ As you can well imagine, I blew everyone away when I named MY person. Captain Kangaroo, Mr. Green Jeans, Bunny Rabbit, and Mr. Moose were some of my best friends as a little girl.  I watched them on black and white television most mornings in my pajamas with a cup of cocoa.

Bob Keeshan was always kind and polite and charming on the show, and even more so in person.  He was one of the stars on a promotional ship cruise that my husband and I were invited to in 1998. All I could say to him was, ‘I love you’…then I teared up…and he hugged me.  My radio career has given me many opportunities to meet famous people and Captain Kangaroo is at the very top of my list…he would have been 86 years old today, he died in 2004.

Thank you for warm and oh so sweet memories, Captain.
