Remember Waking Up in the Morning to "the Captain?"


Tribute to the Captain Kangaroo show starring Bob Keeshan as the captain, and Hugh 'Lumpy' Brannum as Mr. Green Jeans aired weekday mornings on CBS for nearly 30 years, from October 3, 1955 until December 8, 1984, making it the longest-running nationally broadcast children's television program of its day.

The original theme song to Captain Kangaroo (titled "Puffin' Billy") was used from 1955 to 1974.
