Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Bob Keeshan (Captain Kangaroo)

From your childhood comes this podcast with Captain Kangaroo. Bob Keeshan created and played the title role in the children’s TV program. Captain Kangaroo was the longest running kid’s TV show of the day. It ran from 1955 to 1984. Bob also played Clarabell the Clown on the “Howdy Doody Show.” We had this conversation on the set of a Captain Kangaroo show filmed at Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. I was offered interviews with the cast and what they called a new up and coming actor. I turned that one down. It turned out to be a big mistake. That actor was John Ritter, who became the star of the TV sitcom “Three’s Company.”
