Passings: Bob Keeshan, aka Captain Kangaroo

This makes me sad: Bob Keeshan, who played Captain Kangaroo, died today at the age of 76. I used to love Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans.

Link to the New York Times story on Bob Keeshan

Jim Henson, Mr. Rogers, Captain Kangaroo . . . all muchly-missed contributors to my childhood television experience. Crikey, I'm welling up at work.
