BOB KEESHAN DEAD AT 76:

BOB KEESHAN DEAD AT 76: Keeshan played the gentle Capt. Kangaroo for decades on TV–I grew up watching him, and you probably did too.

Philadelphia television in the early 1970s also had the Captain’s counterpart from a different branch of the service: Capt. Noah, as well as Captain Kirk, who began his endless reruns on Channel 17 in 1970.

Good rank to reach if you wanted to be on TV!
