    'Captain Kangaroo' Bob Keeshan Dies at 76
    By CHRISTOPHER GRAFF, AP




    ''Captain Kangaroo'' entertained and educated children for 36 years.

    QUECHEE, Vt. (Jan. 23) - Bob Keeshan, who gently entertained and educated generations of children as television's walrus-mustachioed Captain Kangaroo, died Friday at 76.

    Keeshan died of a long illness, his family said in a statement.

    Keeshan's ''Captain Kangaroo'' premiered on CBS in 1955 and ran for 30 years before moving to public television for six more. It was wildly popular among children and won six Emmy Awards, three Gabriels and three Peabody Awards.

      Hey, reruns would be so much better that some of the kids shows on today, good idea I watched him everyday too. And bought a couple of his books.
      Sorry about the "late"post, I'm sure I'll hear about it:o
      I wanted to attend the funeral if it was public but the family stated it would be private.
