I remember Captain Kangaroo and the Tom Terrific cast of characters: There was, of course, Tom and his "thinking cap" (with a wild series of sound effects when Tom was thinking) as well as "Mighty Manfred--The Wonder Dog" (Tom's ever-faithful companion) who spent most of his time eating and sleeping. The villains of the series were various--but the one I remember was Crabby Appleton (who was "rotten to the core"). The theme song lyrics included: "I'm Tom Terrific--the greatest hero ever. Terrific is the name for me 'cause I'm so clever"..."When there is trouble--I'm there on the double. T-E-R-R-if-ic! My name's Tom Terrific". Gee........now I feel REALLY old!
