TV Personality
    (January 5, 1910-April 19, 1987)
    Born in Sandwich, Illinois
    Member of Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians
    Recorded the children's records 'Little Orley Stories' and 'More Little Orley Stories'
    Hosted 'Uncle Lumpy's Cabin' (1954)
    Portrayed Mr. Green Jeans on 'Captain Kangaroo' (1955-84)
    His nickname was 'Lumpy.'
    He smoked a pipe (but only off-camera).
    He was falsely rumored to be the father of Frank Zappa, apparently due to a Zappa song titled 'Son of Mr. Green Genes.'
    He joined the Marine Corps band during World War II.
    In each 'Captain Kangaroo' episode, he would introduce a live animal and teach about farming and caring for the earth.
    Bob Keeshan said of Brannum and Mr. Green Jeans, 'It was his own personal character. It represented everything that he felt strongly about.'
