Cosmo Allegretti, who created and voiced puppet characters like Grandfather Clock and Dancing Bear on the children's television show "Captain Kangaroo," has died
. He was 86.
Other characters voiced or acted by Allegretti included Mr. Bunny Rabbit, Mister Moose, Rollo the Hippopotamus, Miss Worm, Cornelius the Walrus, Dennis the Apprentice, et. al. Mefites over a certain age will remember the carrots that Mr. Bunny rabbit continually swindled and bouncing ping-pong balls that fell in response to corny knock-knock jokes from Mr. Moose.
