    This really brought back so many memories. I’d almost forgot about my many days of growing up with Mr. Peppermint and his crew. Those days were long before the Saturday morning were filled with anime cartoons, childrens’ dramas, and paid programming. I can recall loving waking up to Mr. Peppermint and Captain Kangaroo… Puppeteering was king, and animated graphics were only beginning to become computer generated (life before Windows 95 and computer aided design). Thats when shows were about building character and learning arts and crafts. I am deeply saddened to hear Mr. Haynes has passed, but I must say that I hadn’t thought about him for years. His death makes be want to celebrate his celebrity because he ruled the morning long before the boom of cable and satellite channels. Reading about his life and career has really reopened parts of life I haven’t thought about in years. Mr. Peppermint thanks for all your years of positive TV, I only wish my children could have that luxury of watching theater on the daily. Although your life here is gone, you legacy lives on…
