CAPTAIN KEVIN meets THE HAMPTOONS
We shot The Hamptoons out in the Hamptons, and one day received word that hallowed kid show icon CAPTAIN KEVIN was fishing off Montauk Bay! At the urging of producer Mike Campbell, our puppeteer Alan Semok called Howard Bacaaazeo (film historian and unofficial Mutual Media Broadcasting System keeper-of-the-kinnies) who contacted Captain Kevin Show producers $hel Marino and Roger Zeebok, who in turn confirmed the sighting. Well, Alan tracked down Kevin and convinced him to make a guest appearance in the Hamptoons Underground TV Studio. Kenny picked up Kevin at the dock ("it was amazing that my first sighting of Kevin since the glory days of childhood was on his boat," a misty-eyed Kenny shared with us.) Surprisingly, CK arrived in costume (he said he travels everywhere with it. "Just in case.") Howard quickly cut together a montage from his award-winning documentary "THE CAPTAIN KEVIN SHOW - - A KID SHOW RECALLED" and it was a BLAST! Lunch was provided.
