My brother and I where on the Captain Delta Show in the 1960′s.I remember,I won the treasure trove.I won a Penny Bright Doll,Wonder Bread products,Tower of Shoes(KEDS).I also posed for pictures with the new up coming talking doll Baby Doll Chatty Cathey in lobby of KOVR(Arden Way).I have still pictures my dad took off the T.V. screen of the show. I remember coming off the gang plank and him ringing the bell ,when coming onto set.We had McDonnel’s food during the cartoon break.I had very fond memory’s of that time.To bad things have changed for kids these days.Are there video tapes from back then?
I was on the Captain Delta show when I was, I guess, 5 or so. That would have been 1968. The set looked like the wheelhouse of an old Delta steamboat (a couple of which were still around in those days, too). I won a View-Master, if anybody remembers those.
Catain Sacto was Fred Wade & Harry Martin.
Martin also played Bonanza Bill
i remember captain delta hosting a kids show in the mornings when i was in elementary school in the early to mid 60s. there were cartoons like “clutch cargo,” “beanie and cecil,” “gumby,” and “koko the clown”. no one seems to remember this show.
Jim Keating just passed away last week at age 85.
Does KOVR keep the Cap’n Delta show archived? If so, can the general public get copies? I was on an eisode in the early 70′s and wold love to get copy. My dad had to use a 8mm camera to record a picture of the TV, no sound.
Any one remember Captain Satellite ? Bob March was the actor. In the early 60′s Captain Delta was on at 4:00 PM then later in the years was switched to a morning show. There was also a Captain San Francisco also.
I never heard of the people you talked about, We had a Capt. Sacto, he use to fly in and land on a aircraft carrier then go down below deck and the show would start
Captain Satellite (Bob March) & Captain San Francisco were SF Bay Area Kids Shows. The Captain Delta Show moved to a morning show when ABC-TV put Dark Shadows on at 4:00 PM. Captain Sacto was play by KCRA -TVs Harry Martin. It was filmed in B&W. There was also a Diver Dan and Skipper Stew kids shows in Sacramento in the 1960′s.
My sisters and me were on in ’66 or so. Would love to know if the video still exists.
Are you sure it was ’66? Because the time I was on I remember very clearly that there were four of us kids, and the other three were all siblings. But I would have been 3 in ’66 and I’m pretty sure I was older than that. I won the Treasure Chest (or whatever it was called): I got a View-Master, a really deluxe one. One of the siblings was the Pepsi-Pal and got the case of Pepsi.
I was actually on the Captain Delta show and would like to know if there are any video of the shows. I only have audio of my appearance and my sisters on another show. I was the pepsi pal winner and got a case of pepsi. Back then that was a major win. LOL
oh My God, I have no idea what made me think & then look up Captain Delta this morning, but i do sometimes try to remember his monkey’s name….(he did have a monkey, didn’t he? or am I confused)……………………
I don’t remember anything about him, Just remember watching him. I do remember seeing is face stareing at you it was kinda funny. He had a big red beard and red hair. I remember him at his son’s Chris baseball games. We just kept making comments like look isn’t that Capt n’ Delta?
I remember Capt’n Sac’to. I watched him in the afternoon after school. He flew in and landed on a carrier. It was my favorite cartoon show.
I WAS VERY YOUNG BUT WAS ON THE GAME SHOW WITH OTHER KIDS ON MY BLOCK. I won a Hot wheels track with car and my sister was on there with me! Captian delta kids game show. The girl down the street was on with her brother and they won cases of Pepsi!! Wonder if they still have any tape of the old show??
I thought some had the answer. I know he lived in Orangevale. In about 1966 I was team mates with his son Chris Agress in Orangevale little league. The team was called the missiles. Why I’m making this inquiry I don’t know, I just started thinking about him.
F.Y.I. The Cartoonland Show with Cap’n Delta was a six day morning and afternoon show including Saturday.
It was dropped due to competition from “Sesame Street” which was also an expensive network children’s show.
Thanks Dave for the memory. The last and most dynamic Cap’n Delta, Jim Keating is still living in Stockton. Jim did it from 1969 through 1973. He spent 20 years with channel 13 as an announcer, director, producer and on air personality.
it was a kid program where 5 kids sat on a bench, I was one of those kids, I won the case of pepsimy whole neighborhood was included. I would like to know where that old footage is,and can we see it?
And why did he disappear over night from channel 13 where he was Captain Delta to be replaced the next day with a new Captain Delta without any explanation only to resurface several months later on channel 40 as Cap’n Mitch when it came on the air? Don’t you guys think the Captain’s Locker segment was a little strange? Don’t you remember the Cap’n Mitch would always say “You can never tell what you saw in the Captain’s Locker.”? He would go in there with a kid, there would be the roaring sounds while the camera shook and when the door opened the kid and the captain came out of there, the kid would be holding a prize and Cap’n Mitch would be repeating to the kid, “Now remember, you can never tell what you saw in The Captain’s Locker”. Highly suspect in my opinion.
Mitch Agress quit as Cap’n Delta because he wasn’t allowed to make outside public appearances The name Cap’n Delta was copywrited and owned by Mc Clatchy Publishing. After about a year or so he appeared on Channel 40 as Captain Mitch.
There were 3 of them. It WAS a morning show and they are all still alive. The first one was Mitch Agruss (later to be known as Cap’n Mitch on Channel 40, then later on 58). When Mitch left KOVR, the next Cap’n Delta was Charlie Duncan. When he left, the third and final Cap’n Delta was Jim Keating. Both Mitch and Jim act in local area theaters. Charlie is retired and I see him every other month at the “Broadcasting Legends” meeting. I was a guest on Cap’n Delta in December 1968 with Mr. Duncan as the Cap’n.
Thank you Ron and all the rest of you. I remember he had a red beard and hair. Am I right? we didn’t get a color TV until Jan 1st in 1969. So all my memories are just from little league. We played most of our games at Roberts or Andrew Carnegie Jr. high. Boy that was a long time ago. Thanks again for all your help.
Wasn’t Harry Martin the first Captain but his name was Captain Sacto?
you guys are idots. that show was on in the afternoon
It was recorded in the afternoon and then showed the next morning.
Yes he is very much alive and well, living in Stockton. The kids and I saw him this morning at the moose lodge.
thanks, there were many fond memories watching him and the cartoons let me know it was time to leave for school
