Don’t be dissin’ the moose and bunny!

We’ve been groovin’ to VH1’s I Love the 70’s tonight. It’s really cool how they make a decade I purport to hate into something kinda cool. Of course, a good chunk of the show is dedicated to making fun of everything from Charlie’s Angels and Starsky and Hutch to Donnie and Marie and Stretch Armstrong. But like those stupid lists they do (that I loathe), they had to put something in that made me grumble. In the show on 1976, for some inexplicable reason, they included Captain Kangaroo… and then proceeded to have their series of lahooooosers (sorry, Rob Zombie) trash him. What was wrong with Captain Kangaroo?? Mr. Moose, Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Green Jeans, Dancing Bear, Grandfather Clock? Hmph! Oh well, back to making fun of BJ and the Bear…

    The Captain was Da Man, until they changed him toward the end.

    Don’t be dissin’ the Captain, Rob Zombie.

    He was an important part of many people’s childhoods and he was an innovator. I have a couple of books about him and the history of the show. I did meet him a few years ago, he was actually a cranky old guy, but I got my picture taken with him, don’t know where it is right now, though.

    We’ve been watching that too. It’s kinda funny that there is so much that my kids…especially the 14 year old…don’t know about the 70s. Makes me feel old!!

    And Cap’n Kangaroo DID rock.

    I loved Captain Kangaroo. I got a kick out of the Pet Rock segment.

    I believe that I’m the only lesbian in the entire universe that had a crush on Mr. Green Jeans.

  11. Mold with self doubt, whirlpool scenes, leave the screws alone, rummaging for donuts, and don’t diss the moose and bunny!
