A kangaroo is a marsupial , native to Australia. Its baby is the size of a jelly bean when it is born, and it grows and develops in its mother's pouch. Kangaroos are known for their powerful legs, and all members of the kangaroo family share this characteristic of strong hind legs and short foreleg…s. Kangaroos are herbivorous and the female kangaroo has a pouch for the joey (baby). Kangaroos are well known for their jumping capabilities and use their tails to help balance. A kangaroo cannot jump if its tail is lifted off the ground. There are over 60 varieties of kangaroo, from the largest, the Red kangaroo, through many varieties of wallabies, and down to the smallest member of the kangaroo, the musky-rat kangaroo. Consequently, their colour varies from reddish-brown to grey, some having darker extremities (feet, nose, tail), such as the wallaroo. A marsupial. A Kangaroo is an large Australian marsupial, it was once, one of the stable food sources of the indigenous people of Australia. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nCaptain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan) was the host of a children's television show that ran for 30 years (mid 50s to mid 80s). His sidekick was Mr. Green Jeans.
No. He washed out of Basic training on the unusual default- he was unable to swim, surely a design requirement for those who fight the battles on land and sea!
There are a great many things that a kangaroo can do. A kangaroocan jump on it's two back legs and carry it's young in a pouch forexample.
I had this record as a child and was searching the same as you. I recall this line. Myra, Myra who. My Rhinosaurus is hungry do you have a bite to eat, That's who. I know it was Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans and I used to play it on my show n tell record player. Just thought I'd answer your… post so you wouldn't think you were crazy. Good luck finding it. Thanks for proving I'm not insane as well, Gabe ( Full Answer )
Quite the opposite. He enlisted in the Marines but washed out of the corps- for inability to swim- a necessary skill to amphibious warriors!
Kangaroos are native marsupials of Australia. They move by hoppingand bounding, and can also move by walking. They are unable toeither move their hind legs independently on land, or to walkbackwards. Kangaroos also: . feed on fresh vegetation . graze . chew their cud . reproduce . swim . They… are also slaughtered by the million every year thepropaganda says it's for their meat but the truth is that is theirskins which are of value because they make excellent leather. Only20% of Kangaroo meat id edible for humans the rest goes to make petfood for dogs and cat, What a terrible crime this is and a terriblewaste of such a unique, magnificent animal. ( Full Answer )
Robert Keeshan, from the start. He wanted an intelligent male role model ( actually two with the agrarian sidekick Mr. Green Jeans- two different actors) as he felt there were too many feminine types in the kidvid arena at the time- not entirely substantiated. Unfortunately Captain Kangaroo did use …cartoons- and reguarily ran a number of them such as Tom Terrific- look up under that name. They did not dominate the program, but he did turn to them at times. ( Full Answer )
No. Warren Nugent is Ted Nugents father. Mr. Green Jeans was played by actor Hugh Brannum.
his assistant wears a right ear ring who kisses hook after an attempted suicide. hes emotional. has perfect things. is neat a neat freak. i think YES
most people who have kangaroos work for a place that raises them such as a zoo or wildcare
He was the little round guy on the screen. I was looking for the same info except I knew what he looked like but didn't know his name. Thanks for the help. I found this link that tells all about him. http://www.toontracker.com/kangaroo/fred.htm
Clarabelle the Clown on the (Howdy Doody) program. he created the role, but ditched it. it was a non-speaking role.
Supposedly he ( washed out) of the marines for being unable to swim under simulated combat conditions- doubtless a basic task for the Leathernecks, involving landing barges, etc. the Marine who could not swim- but floated out as Captain Kangaroo.
Captain Kangaroo was NOT a cartoon character but a live one, played by Bob Keeshan. The dog you are thinking of was a sort of side-kick on the Cartoon- Tom Terrific which was aired ( one believes primarily) on Captain Kangaroo- about the shape-shifting child superhero, Tom Terrific. Tom Terrific cam…e on with the resounding sound of Bahp-Bunk ( or Punk) bucketa- bucketa-bucketa- Bing! Tom Terrific! He wore a funnel on his head. The dog was ( Mighty Manfred the Wonder Dog)_as mentioned a side-kick of Tom Terrific. I hasten to add that Captain K was NOT a Cartoon character but a live actor. He did run cartoons * as did most live hosts of his type- such as Sandy Becker, Fred Scott and later, Soupy Sales. In later years , when on talk shows Mr. Keeshan tried to minimize the role of cartoons on his program, which is not true. While it is true that Captain Kangaroo was not a cartoon character, he did have an old English Sheepdog named BeBe. ( Full Answer )
Various juvenile tomes were handled on this program, often integrated with plot content, for example the Russian tale of the Cap vendor- Caps for sale- was integrated into a sort of lesson on different types and styles of occupational headgear. sometimes they would run cartoons, such as (Tom Terrifi…c) which came on with idiot sound effects ( Bahp Punk- Bucketa Bucketa bucketa- BING! Tom Terrific. He ( Tom T,) wore a funnel on his head all the time. Bty the way Caps for sale, which is in a way anti-capitalistic, the busy cap vendor"s wares are stolen by monkeys, was originally written in the forties and was, as stated, Russian. I also recall the Indian-travelogue Cartoon ( Paddle to the Sea) though it struck me a little odd- and possibly suicidal what will this Indian do when he hits open water? Captain Kangaroo was indeed a juvenile variety show and ran a great variety of different types of entertainment. ( Full Answer )
he is bisexual because he kisses Ianto and Ianto is a boy and he kisses Gwen and he is heartbroken when he finds out she is engaged to someond else.
He was a farmer who always wore Green Jeans, hence the name. with these two the show almost approximated a Juvenile (Johnny Carson) as they had occasional guest characters-live. Captain K read books on the air- and sort of para-cartoon things like the Paddle To the Sea, and various sub themes- for e…xample the somewhat communistic short story- Caps for Sale- was themed with a lesson on various types of occupational headgear.

No he is not. Frank Zappa's father is Francis Vincent Zappa, Sr. Urban legend says that Mr. Green Jeans, a regular on Captain Kangaroo was Frank Zappa's father. That is not true!!! While numerous people have answered this question, and Frank Zappa himself addressed the topic years ago, claiming th…at Mr. Green Jeans was NOT his father, the fact is we simply do not know with whom Frank Zappa's mother was sleeping. Without exhuming Hugh Brannum's and Frank Zappa's bodies and performing DNA tests, this question will never be definitively answered. In my opinion, there is far too much denial for there not to be something more to this story. And let's face it: as much as we loved Frank Zappa, he simply was not that reliable and we should not automatically assume that Mr. Brannum is not his father. Think about it. It would have been embarrassing to have Mr. Green Jeans as your father if you were as wild and crazy as Frank Zappa. Also, we cannot deny the fact that the cast of Captain Kangaroo enjoyed smoking pot, as did Frank Zappa. So, while Francis Vincent Zappa, Sr. was undoubtedly Frank Zappa's legal father, we simply do not have anything that proves he was his biological father. ( Full Answer )
There was not a captain of the airplane that dropped the atomic bomb over Hiroshima, Colonel Paul Tibbets was the pilot who assumed command of the aircraft, he renamed the B-29 after his mother, Enola Gay Tibbets.
There is no evidence to suggest this. James Cook had a wife and six children.
No he is not related to the Captain. He is also NOT Liza Minelli in drag NOR is he Eddie Haskel from Leave it to Beaver.........
Jack is apparently omnisexual, he likes anything regardless of gender or species, which is apparent in Utopia when he flirted Chantho the blue insect woman.
I do not believe that Bob Keeshan (Captain Kangaroo) was ever arrested. Bob Keeshan died in Windsor, Vermont, on January 23, 2004, at the age of 76.
Mr. Moose. He was a puppet. Cap also ran cartoons, which he tried to tone down as he was opposed to much of the material on some cartoons.
Bob Keeshan, who played the captain, did enlist in the Marine Corps Reserve in 1945, but was still in the US when Japan surrendered (he didn't turn 18 until the end of June 1945, so wasn't eligible until the war was almost over).
I love you, I love you, merry, merry moo cow, merry,merry moo cow, I love you, I love you.
doctor Zima.... Cosmo Allegretti was the Dancing Bear, Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose and Grandfather Clock on the show.
There was no Mr. Fred on Captain Kangaroo . There were only three characters named Mr . anything: . Mr. Baxter, played by actor James E. Wall - seen from 1974-1981. . Mr. Green Jeans, played by actor Hugh Brannum - seen from 1955-1984. . Mr. Moose, portrayed by puppeteer Cosmo Allegretti -… seen from 1976-1981. This is not exactly true. There was a blobby cartoon guy on a screen that the Captain would talk to and his name was Fred. ( Full Answer )
Mr Rogers (Fred McFeeley Rogers) never served in the military. Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan) was in the United States Marine Corps Reserve during the Second World War, but never saw any combat service.
Yes, it seems he was. Captain Moonlight was an Australian bushranger called Andrew George Scott. He came to Australia in 1868 and became a lay preacher in Bacchus Marsh, in Victoria. A bank was robbed and the gold was found with Andrew Scott. He was sent to prison in Pentridge, in Melbourne. I…n jail he met James Nesbitt and they became best of friends. When they got out of jail they lived together in Melbourne. Scott was lecturing on prison reform, but he was getting into trouble from the authorities, so the pair, along with two other young men, set off for New South Wales, where they hoped to find work. Unable to find work, they went back to the last place they had been turned away from, Wantabadgery Station, and held it up. The police arrived with reinforcements, thinking the Kelly Gang was there. Two bushrangers were shot, including James Nesbitt, and one of the police, Constable Bowen. Captain Moonlight carried the dying Nesbitt back into the farmhouse, and "wept over him like a child...and kissed him passionately." During his trial for the murder of the policeman, Scott wore a ring made of Nesbitt's hair. He wrote many letters in Darlinghurst Gaol before he was executed. The letters were never sent and were discovered by historians. "We were one in heart and soul, he died in my arms and I long to join him, where there shall be no more parting," Captain Moonlight wrote in a letter to one friend. In another he said, "He died in my arms, his death has broken my heart." And in another letter, "When I think of my dearest Jim, I am nearly driven mad." Just before his death by hanging on January 20, 1888, he wrote: "I want to rest in the grave of my friend, James Nesbitt. Gratify my last wish if you can. I have one hour to live." Sadly, his wish was not granted, and he was buried in Rookwood Cemetery, in Sydney. But there is a happy ending. In 1998 his body was exhumed and carried in a horse-drawn wagon, to Gundagai Cemetery, where he was buried next to his dear James Nesbitt. ( Full Answer )
Lieutenant James Cook (not yet a captain at the time of this incident) first recorded seeing a kangaroo when his ship was wrecked on the Great Barrier Reef near the present day site of Cooktown in 1770. He brought the Endeavour in to what is now the Endeavour River for repairs, and he and his crew… spent some six weeks repairing it. On 4 August 1770 , the name of the marsupial was recorded as "Kangooroo or Kanguru". The name was derived from gangurru, used by the local indigenous people, the Guugu Yimidhirr, to refer to the Grey kangaroo. Contrary to popular myth, the name does not mean "I don't understand you".

I served in the military (Vietnam) with a young man who claimed to be one of the dancing bears on CK. They were mostly college students looking for supplemental income. Since I don't have his consent I will not give his name. I'm not saying Cosmo F. Allegretti didn't play dancing bear just that ther…e was more than one who played the part. ( Full Answer )
While they never really specify if he is gay or not, he doesn't ever show any signs of being gay. So, no.
I've never seen it in stores but just about everything is for sale on the internet.
I can"t recall any. Captain Kangaroo did run cartoons, and also cartoons adapted from juvenile books, such as paddle to the sea- a variation on the Hiawatha legend. ( why the Indian made such a hazardous journey was not entered into) Indians, yes, Tom Terrific- a regular- Can"t recall any Mice. ther…e was a story about a man vending hats that involved monkeys ( Caps for sale, fifty cents a cap) but not mice.

Bob Keeshan (born June 27, 1927) who was "Captain Kangaroo" passedaway January 23, 2004 . I've added a related linkto his gravesite below .
There was a puppet rabbit called Mr. Bunny Rabbit. I never recalled this one. Cap Ran cartoons- as do most all juveniles shows- but never ran Bugs Bunny who is a Warner Bros. flagstaff!
These are lyrics from the song (Counting flowers on the wall) it is a catchy tune, a pity is the lyrics do not make much sense. Coffee is an adult beverage, and Captain Kangaroo a most juvenile kiddy show. A different perspective: It is a refrain from the song, "Flowers on the Wall," from the 196…5 Statler Brothers single released in September. The lyrics illustrate the emptiness of loneliness by highlighting the pointless endeavors of the speaker. It can be surmised that the speaker has recently ended a relationship with the second party to whom he is speaking. Lyrics: "Flowers on the Wall" Statler Brothers, 1965 I keep hearing you're concerned about my happiness. All that thought you're giving me is conscience, I guess. If I were walking in your shoes, I wouldn't worry none. While you and your friends are worrying 'bout me, I'm having lots of fun. Counting flowers on the wall, That don't bother me at all. Playing Solitaire till dawn, With a deck of fifty-one. Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo. Now, don't tell me I've nothing to do. Last night I dressed in tails, pretended I was on the town. As long as I can dream, it's hard to slow this swinger down. So please don't give a thought to me, I'm really doing fine. You can always find me here, having quite a time. Counting flowers on the wall, That don't bother me at all. Playing Solitaire till dawn, With a deck of fifty-one. Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo. Now, don't tell me I've nothing to do. Well, it's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright. Anyway my eyes are not accustomed to this light. And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete. So I must go back to my room and make my day complete. Counting flowers on the wall, That don't bother me at all. Playing Solitaire till dawn, With a deck of fifty-one. Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo. Now, counting flowers on the wall, That don't bother me at all. Playing Solitaire till dawn, With a deck of fifty-one. Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo. Now, don't tell me I've nothing to do. Don't tell me I've nothing to do. ( Full Answer )
No Mr. Greenjeans was. Captain Kangaroo (Robert James "Bob" Keeshan) was not a Navy Seal. However, he was a U.S. Marine who enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserve at the end of WWII. Keeshan never saw combat; he was still in the United States when Japan surrendered.
They did various road trips to differfent locales. I can recall the Massapequa Zoo and Kiddy Park getting the glad hand. I am not sure if the Captain Kangaroo staff visited the park, or Park attendants brought animals to the (treasure house) as the Kangaroon site was known. Captain Kangaroo took pla…ce entirely indoors- under the circumstances this was not a handicap as they occasionally used remote feeds- being in the (press box) at the Thanksgiving Day parade, for example). But, like many juvenile and indeed many early TV shows- it took place mostly indoors. ( Full Answer )
yes... yes the captain of america ending is gay because he never gets to be with the women he loves.
You don't. Kangaroos are protected by Australian law, and are not permitted as pets in Australia. They should not be purchased by people overseas to satisfy a whim for an exotic pet. These animals cannot be domesticated. Within Australia, they may only be kept by a registered wildlife carer w…ho has a licence. The Australian government has only permitted the export of kangaroos overseas for non-commercial purposes. This means that smaller, private zoos have been permitted to have them. Unfortunately, this has resulted in numerous kangaroos escaping from their enclosures (due to mismananagement and lack of understanding of the animals' needs), causing the development of feral populations overseas. Despite permitting the export of these animals, this still does not mean that kangaroos may be kept as pets. Anyone who sells kangaroos overseas is, in effect, flouting Australian law by exploiting them for commercial purposes . It also increases the likelihood of abuse. Reports coming back to the RSPCA in Australia indicate that some of these animals have ended up in shelters. Australians were outraged when, in March 2010, it was reported that a circus act in Texas involved goading a kangaroo into "boxing" with people. This was a clear case of blatant cruelty, and an example of the abuse to which exotic animals are often subjected. Kangaroos are not sold commercially in Australia as pets . Apart from registered and regulated animal sanctuaries and some research institutions , only registered wildlife carers may tend ill or wounded native animals for a time. Many unregistered people will take in injured wildlife and call them their "pets": while this is a marvellous caring gesture, it is still illegal, and the animals are generally released as soon as they are able to fend for themselves. Animals which are injured or distressed (e.g. during bushfires or floods, or orphaned when the mother is hit by a car) should always be rescued. For the good of the animal it is better to notify the wildlife authorities as soon as possible. ( Full Answer )
It is not recorded that Captain Kangaroo played Bob Keeshan or Mr. Green Jeans played by Hugh Brannum had any drug problems in real life. Hugh Brannum died of cancer in 1987. Bob Keeshan died of a long illness in 2004.
No Bob Keeshan, the actor who played Captain Kangaroo, graduated from high school in 1945 and joined the US Marine Corps Reserve. Before he finished training and could be sent overseas, Japan surrendered and the war ended.
Kangaroos cannot solve algebraic equations. They cannot hold their breath for half an hour. They cannot transmute lead into gold. There are infinitely many other things that they cannot do.
