I enjoyed Captain Kangaroo, also.

I remember a local show similar to this in Atlanta, officer Don or something, came on in the afternoons after School. My mother got me on the show, and somehow got me on the Birthday row. This row of seats were in front, and the kids seated there got interviewed by Officer Don. Officer Don was dressed up like a policeman and had cartoons, and promoted safety or something like that. I'll never forget his face when he asked me when is my birthday, and I told him December 4th. It was early September, and live TV.

I know that Captain Kangaroo was geared toward pre-schoolers, but I watched him till I was about 10 or 11.

I have two memories from this show that make me smile up to this day:

1. When Mr. Moose dropped ping-pong balls on the Captain's head.

2. The many ways Bunny Rabbit always tricked the Captain out of a bunch of carrots. And..........Bunny NEVER ate the greens of the carrots!
