Captain Kangaroo (CBS)




Captain Kangaroo
 1957 | CBS Television

Captain Kangaroo is virtually the only genuine children’s program left on network television—certainly the only one which puts the welfare of the children ahead of that of the sponsor; which instructs children in safety, in ethics, in health, without interrupting the serious business of entertaining them at the same time. The Peabody Award for outstanding television youth and children’s programs goes, therefore, to Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan), broadcast by CBS.
