"...countin' flowers on the wall..."

Is a paradigm worth 20 cents?

Re: Sad day...

Aww. Me, too. I grew up on Captain Kangaroo. I didn't realize the show ran through the 80s into the 90s, though! Wow! Shoot, I was watching it in the 60s!

Re: Sad day...

That is sad . Kinda like the passing of "Mister Rogers". Don't see many harmless, truly well meaning peeps out for the children's cause any more. After a quick Google inquiry I just found that the Captain's start in show biz began by playing Clarabell the Clown on the Howdy Doody Show
Anyone else out there ancient enough to remember that chit? Anyone out there willing to admit it?
