Soupy and Pookie

I now realize that one of the cool things abourt watching kids' TV in the Sixties was all the music you got exposed to, especially jazz. I remember seeing Dizzy Gillespie, Willie The Lion Smith and Billy Taylor on Captain Kangaroo and Soupy Sales snuck some jazz records into his routines as well. Here's a bit from Soupy's show featuring Pookie the Lion doing Clark Terry's "Mumbles". He then finishes up with a bit of the Animals.

I remember the Captain Kangaroo episode when they demonstrated a theremin. Good times!
