I don't know about you, but I grew up watching The Captain. (Lucky little Betsy McCall got to go meet him!) His show was on long enough that it spanned a couple of generations. You know, he came into our homes almost daily - and he seemed like such a nice man. You couldn't help but love him, like he was an extra Grandpa or favorite uncle! Mr. Green Jeans was equally nice. I think my favorite "character" was Bunny Rabbit, but we also got to enjoy Mr. Moose, Dancing Bear, the Grandfather Clock and more, all of them there for our amusement and education.
Sadly, we lost Bob Keeshan in 2004, but I have managed to find a few books to keep his memory alive.
And there's always YouTube!
Thank you for all the years of enjoyment, Captain and friends.
