Umm... I thought Bob Keeshan was Clarabell. He also played Captain Kangaroo. Keeshan died in 2004.

Per the CNN article:

Anderson followed Bobby Nicholson, who later played Doodyville's J. Cornelius Cobb, into the role. The first to play the mute clown was Bob Keeshan, who later became known as Captain Kangaroo.

There ya go.  Smile
