WALT AND THE CAPTAIN — In spite of a little height difference, it’s a “jump ball” called between Bob Keeshan as Captain Kangaroo and basketball’s Walt Frazier, back court star of the New York Knickerbockers, when the latter makes a guest appearance on the “Captain Kangaroo” series, Thursday, Dec. 30 (8:00-9:00 AM, EST) on the CBS Television Network.
