I am once again heartbroken! First we lost Mr. Rogers and now, less than a year later, we’ve lost Captain Kangaroo! I was a kid in the 70’s and both of these men had a big impact on my life. I watched both shows whenever they were on and learned many lessons while still having fun. And that’s the key: they were educational yet fun, and strong in traditional values. Both of their shows are examples of the best of kids’ tv. Too much of what passes for children’s tv today is nothing but violence and potty humor or liberal indoctrination.
They will both be missed by many, many people.
