Philadelphia TV Pioneer Captain Noah Dies at Age 90

Sad local note:

Produced at the Channel 6 studios, the show at its peak was syndicated to 22 other stations across the nation. Locally, the Magical Ark’s audience in the early 1970s was larger than Captain Kangaroo and Sesame Street combined.

Organist Larry Ferrari provided the music, which included “Send Your Pictures to Captain Noah” and their theme song, “I Can Sing a Rainbow.”

When I was a kid, Captain Noah was the show to watch. Over 3,600 episodes.
