Kids today would not enjoy 'Howdy Doody'

My nephew will have nothing to do with a cowboy marionette that can not shoot fire out its rear like a Pokemon. Clarabel is literally the stuff nightmares were made of back then!

I did not know the first Clarabel was Bob Keeshan. Keeshan gave up the stellar role of Clarabel to become Captain Kangaroo. This show was far more a feel-good acid trip for the children. Tho I doubt The Captain'd be a hit here-and-now either.
