Mister Greenjeans


NOTE: Mr. Green Jeans, played by the actor Hugh "Lumpy" Brannum (b. January 5, 1910 in Sandwich, Illinois - d. April 22, 1987 East Stroudsburg, Pa), was the right-hand man to Captain Kangaroo (played by Bob Keeshan) on the popular children's television program, Captain Kangaroo. Mr. Green Jeans earned his moniker from his distinctive apparel, a pair of farmer's overalls (later, jeans and a denim jacket) in his signature green. He was a talented and inquisitive handyman who provided assistance at the Treasure House.
