Captain Kangaroo's costar James Wall passed away due to illness on Wednesday at the age of 92.

Wall played the friendly neighbor, Mr. Baxter on the iconic children's series between 1968-1978.

He started off working on the production team in 1962, but lobbied for the role of Mr. Baxter, making him the series' first African-American character.

He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Dolly.

So sad. Our thoughts are with his family.
