Premise

One of the most popular and longest-running children's shows on morning TV, the series was hosted by Bob Keeshan, who once played Clarabell the clown on `Howdy Doody.' Known for his kindly demeanor, the Captain spent nearly 30 years in the Treasure House, where he welcomed familiar faces such as Mr. Green Jeans, Dennis the handyman, puppet friends Mr. Moose and Bunny Rabbit, and occasional celebrity visitors. Retooled as the `All New Captain Kangaroo' in 1997, with John McDonough.
