The New Captain Kangaroo!
It is with a lot of pride (and no small amount of envy) that I announce that my friend Pat CashinÂ (and blogger behind http://www.clownalley.net ) is the new Captain Kangaroo!
He acquired the trademark, and is set to do all kinds of great things with it, including (hopefully) make a boatload of money with which he will then give away to clown causes everywhere.
Seriously, I can’t think of a person I would rather entrust withÂ the preservation of classic and kind comedy, such as the original Captain Kangaroo embodied.Â It’s a great fit.
In case you didn’t know, Captain Kangaroo ran for nearly 30 years from 1955-1984.Â It was created by Bob Keeshan, who had portrayed Clara-Bell on the Howdy Doody Show and also portrayed the famous Captain.
Pat Cashin has acquired the trademark, and will be portraying the Captain in a new updated set of Captain Kangaroo shows, cartoons, webisodes, and anything else they can do.
