flippo died not too long ago, i think.

is captain kangaroo dead? i'm pretty sure he is.

mr. green jeans? yep, him too.

remember Bunny Rabbit and Mr. Moose?

the question is, how do kids grow up to be decent human beings these days?

My kids ALL grew up with me singing to them...
"Wake up Mr Tree, it's very good to see you,
Wake up, Mr Tree, it's day-time, can't you see?"

My brother was on Flippo,
I WAS ON THE LUCY SHOW. Not Lucille Ball, but The Lucy Show out of Columbus. Someone tell me they remember!

And...did you guys think it was funny when Mr. Moose would let go with all of his ping pong balls?
I always felt kind of bad for the Captain.

The Katzbox said...

Bunny Rabbit had issues....those ping pong balls just screamed passive-aggressive....silly Rabbit, tricks are for kids....oh wait, that's a cereal commercial....

The Katzbox said...

Jette-VERY GOOD!!!!!

Diane said...

I need some Captain reruns.
