Captain Kangaroo: Why Everyone Was Enchanted By This Show

Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings

Another popular cartoon that aired on “Captain Kangaroo” was another British cartoon, “Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings.” The cartoon was based on a series of children’s books by Edward McLachlan that featured a boy named Simon who had a magic chalkboard on which his drawings become real and he is able to enter their world. While the original British airing featured the different narrator, Keeshan did the narration for “Captain Kangaroo.”
