Hugh Brannum (January 5, 1910 – April 19, 1987) was an American vocalist, arranger, composer and actor best known for his role as Mr. Green Jeans on the children’s television show 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 (although, since the show was broadcast in black-and-white for much of its run, this was lost on viewers). He was a talented and inquisitive handyman who provided assistance at the Treasure House. He frequently visited the Captain with the latest addition to his menagerie of zoo animals.
