I have the most wonderful memories of that show, I grew up with it and my children did as well. For years I never knew that Bob Keeshan played Clarabell on the Howdy Doody Show.

tv show.


Gentle,funny,entertaining,

creative and meaningful.


The type of good kids tv

show that you'll never see on

PBS TV Today!

Mr.Keeshan was the first

performer to playClarabelle

on Howdy Doody from 1948

to 1952(or 1951..depending on

which kids tv history book that

you read?)

He was replaced by Bobby(Nick)

Nicholson in 1952.

Mr.Nicholson hated playing

Clarabelle and he asked the

show's producer Mr.Roger Muir

to hire another actor to play

the clown and him(Nicholson)

to create and perform his own

character.


Former jazz bandleader and

entertainer:Lew Anderson took

over the role of Clarabellein 1954

and Nicholson took on the role of

Corny Cobb.

Mr.Anderson playedClarabelle

on Howdy Doody on NBC TV from

1954 to Saturday September 24,

1960.


He would play the clown again

on The New Howdy Doody TV Show

in antional syndication from 1976 to

1977 and in many personal appearances

with Buffalo Bob Smith(And oftimes with

Mr.Milt Neil)during the late 1970's and into the

1980's and 90's.

I loved Captain Kangaroo! I always had good memories of watching it at my grandma's home...she took care of me when Mom was at work and also after school as I grew older, and I spent lots of mornings at her home, watching the Captain and Mr. Green Jeans and Bunny Rabbit. It's a show that always made me feel comfortable and thereby comforted. He had a great way with kids.

Never missed a show. As much a part of my growing up as Mr. Rogers. God bless the memory of them both.
