I see millions of ping pong balls dropping on the Captain.

Bunny Rabid didn’t have a voice. He was mute.

I used to wake up at 6:00 AM on Saturday mornings to watch that show. The ping pong balls for some reason were the most hilarious thing on TV for me.

Was royally ticked when they switched it out for Romper Room.

I hate to hear this. However, I just wish all the Mr. Greenjeans stunt doubles around here would do better at keeping their d******* cows put up!

I saw the show in black and white on our 1952 Majestic TV. I never saw it in color.

Sadly, there's probably quite a few folks on here that don't know who we're talking about.

FWIW, I always thought Dancing Bear was a fag.

Here's Captain Kangaroo's theme song--something most Baby Boomers will remember:

Puffin' Billy--The Melodi Light Orchestra (1953)

To this day, when things come crashing down and go bouncing around, while my oldest brother might make reference to Fibber McGee, I just say “ping pong balls”.

Tom Terrific... Rocky and Bullwinkle... Somebody or other whose name eludes me at the moment and his pet boy Sherman...

Great stuff, long before - and much better than - the crap on Sesame Street.

That's Mr. Green Jeans (Hugh Brannum) with Dancing Bear (Cosmo Allegretti) in 1960. I grew up on Captain Kangaroo, as well as Sally Starr, Popeye, Olive Oyl, Brutus (Bluto), the Three Stooges, Gene London, Mickey Mouse, Bertie the Bunyip (with Sir Guy de Guy), Clutch Cargo, Tom Terrific, Mighty Manfred the Wonder Dog, Wee Willie Weber, Clyde Crashcup, Crabby Appleton, Poindexter and Mr. Peabody, Pete Boyle, and the Little Rascals.

I'm guessing most of the above are dead except for the cartoons. Heck, even Pete Boyles son (who played the Dad on 'Everybody Loves Raymond') is dead.
Yikes, I'm old.

Oops. That was Mister Peabody and Sherman. Poindexter was in the Felix the Cat cartoons. I also forgot to mention Caspar the Friendly Ghost, Johnny Quest, and Rocky & Bullwinkle in my list. And probably a handful more that will come to mind after I hit 'post'.
