Icons Of My Childhood Keep Disappearing

When I was a rugrat, I used to think that Captain Kangaroo and Walter Cronkite were the same guy. They both lived on Channel 2, they both had moustaches, they both spoke in assuring basso profundo tones. It's just that he'd wear his captain's costume in the morning when we kids were watching, then put on his serious suit and demanor at night because dad was home to watch.
