Wake Up with Captain Kangaroo (1981)

I miss the Captain, he was a staple of my youth. I like the Sci-Fi theming and George the Talking Computer is an interesting addition to the cast, but that voice is difficult to take in large doses. He kind of sounds like he might be related to Cookie Puss from Carvel.

Oh and did you notice that the beamer control looks a lot like a sawed-off Merlin?

  1. Retroist…that clip brings back some memories, friend. Did you happen to notice besides the Merlin “controller” that when the good Captain is typing in Dennis in the computer the beeps are from Simon? :)
