    While I'm way to young to know the Captain myself, my mom was kind of sad today. (kind of)

    You know guys like Capt. Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers are easy targets for making fun but their passing means that there are 2 less nice people in the world. I had fond memories of that show. Corny by todays standards but good. I never really got into Dancing Bear, but Bunny Rabbit was cool.
  6. WHY GOD !?!?!!

    WHY ???

    Good post.

  8. :(

    I will never forget Captain Kangaroo, Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose, or Mr. Greenjeans.

    Good times as a wee one, they helped make the world a better place. So did Fred Rogers.

    Here's hoping that history repeats itself, and our children have good influences like we had.

    I grew up in Seattle, so I had the Captain, Mr. Rogers, and the local J.P. Patches. J.P. is now the only one still around, and that makes me sad.

    RIP Captain!

    Never saw the show mysewlf, but rip.

    That was in poor taste, and if you really wanted to know a simple google search would have turned up this:

    Hugh Brannum (Mr. Green Jeans) died of cancer on April 22, 1987 at his home in Sailorsburg, Pennsylvania. He was 77 years old.

  13. sorry, didnt mean to offend. Someone told me he did...guess now I know.
  14. Speaking of...

    Anyone hear about the rumor that Frank Zappa was the son of Mr. Green Jeans?
