It wasn't until later years that I realized, when my wife pointed it out to me, that I had a particular fascination with clocks. I hadn't particularly noticed it before, but as a child, I was indeed aware of the importance of time and the spending of it wisely. But while my fascination with clocks as an instrument of time had to be pointed out, I recognized instantly, as I viewed the footage that became the contents of this DVD, exactly where that fascination came from. It was from Grandfather Clock, the kindly faced grand time piece character who would alternately wake and sleep and reawake and who oversaw all the goings-on in "The Treasure House" on the set of "Captain Kangaroo". My watching the show as a young child in the 1960s had resulted in the adoption of a number of different moral values, all kindly imparted by the grand old man of childrens television Bob Keeshan, and it's apparent now that chief among those values adopted was a respect for time as symbolized by Grandfather Clock. My parents decades later had the unique fortune of having dinner with Mr. Keeshan, and they had the opportunity to tell him how much I and my siblings enjoyed the show. I regret not having had the opportunity to tell him myself how much the kindness dispensed on his show was appreciated, but I know that he would feel that our continuing to watch and enjoy these shows in the spirit in which they were broadcast would truly be thanks enough.

Captain Kangaroo was an American children's television series that aired weekday mornings on the American television network CBS for 29 years, from 1955 to 1984, making it the longest-running nationally broadcast children's television program of its day. In 1986, the American Program Service (now American Public Television, Boston) integrated some newly produced segments into reruns of past episodes, distributing the newer version of the series to PBS and independent public stations until 1993. The show was conceived by Bob Keeshan, who also played the title character "Captain Kangaroo", and who based the show on "the warm relationship between grandparents and children". Keeshan had portrayed the original Clarabell the Clown on NBC's The Howdy Doody Show, the first kids’ television program, during its early years. Captain Kangaroo had a loose structure, built around life in the "Treasure House" where the Captain (the name "kangaroo" came from the big pockets in his coat) would tell stories, meet guests, and indulge in silly stunts with regular characters, both humans and puppets. Keeshan performed as the Captain more than 9,000 times over the nearly 30-year run of the show. The May 17, 1971, episode had two major changes on the show: The Treasure House was renovated and renamed "The Captain's Place" and the Captain replaced his navy blue coat with a red coat. In September 1981, CBS shortened the hour-long show to a half-hour, briefly retitled it Wake Up with the Captain, and moved it to an earlier time slot; it was moved to weekends in September 1982, and returned to an hour-long format. CBS cancelled Captain Kangaroo at the end of 1984.
