    Was Mr. Rogers a bigger influence on Brady's generation? Or, was Captain Kangaroo a greater influence on Belichick's generation?

    Now, I'm from Belichick's generation and Captain Kangaroo had no influence on me. In fact , I thought Mr Greeen Jeans was kind of a perv.

    In Boston we had Major Mudd. He was great, so I never watched Captain Kanageroo. And I hated Mr. Rogers because he was such a goody-two shoes. I only watched him because he came on before ZOOM (Box 350, Boston, MA 02134.)

    The Captain and Mr Rogers would have pretty much influenced the same generation. I doubt Tom Brady has ever seen either of them.

    Gotta say the Captain, back in the 50's there wsn't as much media, no cable and so on Mr Rogers had to deal with the Muppets and a wider variety of competition. Mr Rogers had to be 1 tough cookies to compete with those Muppets, and don't forget Barney trying to take him down later, vicious stuff. All the Capt had to deal with was Bozo the clown, who was a walkover.

    Capt K ruled his day more than Mr Rogers.

    I don't think so. CK was on the 50 and trough the 60's before MR came to be.

    MR started in the 70's and by the early 80's CK was gone. So one was in Brady's adolecence and the other was in BB's. Could have been so me minor overlap.

    Maybe BB is a little too young but CK's main competitor was Howdy Doody.

    Howdy and Buffalo Bob (Bills fan?) and Clarabell (jest fan?)

    Dilly Dally reminds me of a certain poster on this board.:singing:

    The 'Roo was also still going throughout the 1970s, daily winding up his giant box of toothpaste that played the jingle "Colgate fluoride MFP/Helps prevent a cavity/And it tastes great naturally!"

    Mr. Rogers began on PBS in the 1960s, and had done a similar show even earlier but with less reach than PBS gave him.

    This thread is of questionable quality, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to point out that Mr. Rogers was a hero.

    But, didn't Mr. Rogers become "hot' in the 80's? Where Roo was about over by the mid 70's.

    Otherwise, this thread would have been meaningless.:rofl:

    Well this was pulled out of the groove yard of forgotten threads.

    However, it was intended to be a thread that explores the possilble influences on our HC & QB.:rolleyes:

    That was kind of my point in my earlier post. I grew up in the 70's watching both Fred and the Captain (although I didn't watch Fred that much. those puppets gave me the creeps.). But I think they were both pretty much done by the 80's.

    Anyway, let's let this thread go back to sleep.

    Don't forget Willie Whistle from Channel 38. Back in the day when Channel 38 was known for Bruins game, Million dollar movies ( introduced by what's his name) and Willie....Boy am I aging myself..................

    I think the local versions were far more interesting. I grew up in Keloland watching Captain 11, today's man of the future.

    Mr. Whistle was seldom able to convey a thought clearly and concisely. I was more of an Uncle Gus man.
