Historical posts

I get lots of questions about videos from the old TV shows, but there is practically nothing available. There are a few things on YouTube. We didn’t have VCRs back in those days, so there are no private collections. Keep wishing.

It sounds like the poem The Blind Men and the Elephant, by John Godfrey Saxe.

My mother in law is looking for a book she said CK read in the 80's about and elephant that two things saw and describe two different things about each part of the elephant, ex not sure if it was two other animals would say for ex. his back was broad one say hairy. Hopefully this makes sense to someone.

I was born in 1953. I always liked the books he would read, and the song stories, like Angus McFergus McTavish Dundee, and Albert the Airsick Eagle.  Does anyone know the book that he would read where they would play the Manhattan Beach March in the background? Seems like it was about a boy who couldn't stop reading a book he'd just gotten.

Thank you! I loved Simon. But not many people remember Simon and his drawings. I am so glad I am not the only one to remember the words to the song.

Does anybody remember Simon from the Captain Kangaroo Show? He sang a catchy little tune . . . Now you know my name is Simon, and the things I draw come true; you can take me, take me, take me climbing over the garden wall with you. How do we still remember this stuff?!

Hello,
Captain Kangaroo is mu favorite television series! Actually, it was more than a series...it was a visit with my favorite television friends! I own some 16mm film kinescopes, which are incredibly difficult to locate. I've hear an unfounded rumor that videotapes of the series are located in an underground salt mine.
