Personal Award: Bob Keeshan

CBS Television

A personal Peabody Award goes to Bob Keeshan, known to millions as “Captain Kangaroo.” For a quarter of a century, he has not only brought superior entertainment to children of all ages, but by his personal appearances and speeches, Mr. Keeshan has promoted quality children’s programs on American television. His contributions to the industry are unique and merit recognition again by the bestowal of a Peabody Award.
