Mr. Green Jeans and Captain Kangaroo. What a pair! Mr. Green Jeans seemed so normal compared to the Captain.

I loved Captain Kangaroo. It was always a bummer though because he often had neat projects to make with empty shoe boxes and I could never find an empty shoebox! :(

I always resented that CBS took him off the air so they could put on a host of unsuccessful morning news programs...

There is a restaurant in Toronto called Mr. Green Jeans. I never knew it was named after anything.

Couldn't you also pick up an activity pack that went with the show? I remember getting those at the checkout counter at the A&P.

But maybe I am thinking of Romper Room, which came on afterwards.

I was never a fan of Captain Kangaroo and I really didn't like romper room. I loved sesame street though.

I'm with you Jon. I was never really into the Captain.

Sesame Street and The Electric Company were my faves.

Definitely dug The Electric Comp[any, except for Spiderman. As a kid, he freaked me out because he wouldn't talk.

I've always wondered about the thinking process of Sesame Street in regards to The Count. You're going to take an undead ghoul, that will gladly drain every ounce of blood out of your body, and have him teach children to count.

The problem with having an open mind is that people keep trying to put things in it.
