Tony Hawk on Captain Kangaroo

Not much to say about this 1981 clip of Tony Hawk on the old children’s show Captain Kangaroo. I didn’t know the Captain was still on the air in 1981. It’s a little disappointing actually, since Tony’s appearance isn’t live on set with the Captain. Instead, it’s just video footage of tony skating Del Mar on a Steve Caballero board no less. The Captain’s crew even managed to record an old sea chanty titled Skateboard Johnny, not to be confused with the song Skateboard Johnny featured in this collection of 70’s skateboard tunes, or this UK child molester named Skateboard Johnny. Watch the video after the jump.

Tony Hawk on Captain Kangaroo TV show in 1981


  1. I knew you would like this one, Kilwag. 😀

    The clip is a bit surreal – or maybe it is just me flashing back to when I was a kid and actually watched the good Captain on a regular basis. I was hoping for some of that falling ping pong ball action, too.

    Quite possibly the best episode since Lumpkin. Ifuking love that song.
