“He was the unofficial baby sitter for generations of latchkey kids, a humble host in a yachting cap whose tranquil voice could take the edge off even the harshest sugar high.” From: Cap’n Mitch lives on in our small-screen memories
Oh man, I hadn’t thought about Cap’n Mitch until I saw this, but I used to watch him all the time when I was a little kid. I remember that once, he was supposed to come to my preschool — they made a big deal out of it, but he didn’t show up. I briefly held a grudge about that, but I continued to watch him on TV, and managed to forgive him. Sail on, Cap’n, sail on.
