Availability[edit | edit source]
There are a total of 40 episodes made but only 10 have been found so far 6 of them being released on 3 individual Home Videos under the short lived "Treasure House Series" line there was also a Birthday special that took place in Sea World called Captain Kangaroo's Birthday Party at Sea World, which was lost until March 7, 2021 when it was uploaded to YouTube by user skullzproductions.
On April 14th, 2021 a Discord user under the name ChristopherT2004 found two screener tapes from Saban at a swap meet including both episodes 17 and 22 of the show and both would be uploaded to YouTube 10 months later on February 21st and 22nd of 2022 by skullzproductions.
Paul Pistore who played Mister Moose confirmed that all the episodes along with it's spinoff Mister Moose's Fun Time were vaulted by Disney after they bought Fox Family and made it ABC Family later known as FreeForm mostly due to the fact this show advertised rival Florida based theme parks Sea World and Busch Gardens so it is unknown if the show will ever return.
On March 2nd, 2020 a pilot from 1996 was unearthed featuring Dave Rudolf as the titular captain looking quite similar to Bob Keeshan, Paul Pistore confirmed Dave was dropped because test audiences thought he was a bit creepy and was later recasted by the late John McDonough for the show.
