This scene from Captain Kangaroo is a re-enactment of the Roosevelt Franklin Elementary School bit. Is it a pre-existing story or something? - Oscarfan (talk) 05:47, July 1, 2013 (UTC)

Matt Robinson receives writing credit (in a list of staff writers) on some of the 1985 videos, some of which reuse material from the 70s and some from the 80s. It's not a pre-existing story, and we know Robinson wrote the Roosevelt skits. So he just reworked the story some years later when he changed employers (I don't know the exact date of this version, but based on the age of the cast members, it has to be at least very late 70s, more likely 1980s, but we can leave that out and just say "later run" or something). So we can basically consider it a Muppet Mention, even if that wasn't quite the original intent, same as we do cover songs on TV shows, whether the cover acknowledges the Muppet source or not. -- Andrew Leal (talk) 06:27, July 1, 2013 (UTC)
