What are we going to do Mr. Rogers and now the Captian!

I wonder if they will rain ping pong balls down on him!!!!
He always looked annoyed but I think he liked it!!!

What was the moose's name?

Fair winds and smooth seas, Captain!

OT: I met Mr. Green Jeans at Earth Day 1980, at my little college in the Poconos. Really laid back, cool guy.

EDIT: Why, Mr. Moose, of course!

The good captain is gone. I watched him when I was a kid. As goes Captain Kangaroo, so goes the original Clarabelle the Clown. He was a good, gentle man who was always an advocate for children.

Noooooooooooo, I remember back a couple years ago when somebody said he was dead :( . Liars.

Sad thing is that I thought he was dead already.
