Bob Keeshan (better known by many as Captain Kangaroo) died Friday morning. Very sad. As a kid, I got so many laughs out of Mr. Moose and his buckets of cascading ping pong balls. And some folk from the show went on to help create other great shows like Sesame Street and The Muppet Show! Pioneers in children's television, really. Teletubbies and Barney and whatever else there is out there today just don't seem quite the same.
