* [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Rudely Treated by the Network]]: After years of loyal service to CBS, the network rewarded Captain K in 1981 by pushing the show into an earlier time slot and cutting its running time and budget, all in order to use his traditional time slot to air a CBS Morning News Show to compete with NBC's ''The Series/{{Today}} Show'' and ABC's ''Good Morning, America''. This irritated Bob Keeshan to the point that he left the show as soon as his contract expired. A bit of poetic justice: The CBS News show traditionally runs third to the two other shows.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: In 1974, a contract dispute with CBS nearly got the Captain's show canceled. CBS had Hanna-Barbera prepare a pre-schoolers animated show to replace it. The dispute was settled, the Captain stayed, and word is that Joe Barbera threw a celebratory banquet even though his show wouldn't be made because "I didn't want to be the man who got ''Captain Kangaroo'' canceled!"
