Captain Kangaroo Handwritten Documents

Year: 1974
Decade: 1970s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

The documents (hand written by Bob Keeshan) summarize Bob Keeshan’s public appearances promoting ”Captain Kangaroo” in 1974 from his own personal papers.

Highlights listed within the pages include many guest appearances on radio and television shows, meetings with mayors, and engagements as Grand Marshall of several parades including the Gimbels Thanksgiving Day parade. A note reminds the reader, ”…Oh, by the way – during this period the show was in studio production…”

Document concludes with a list of the cities Keeshan was already scheduled to visit the following year. The busy performer’s promotional efforts paid off with Emmy nominations beginning in 1974 and continuing for the next ten consecutive years, with wins peppered throughout the decade.
