Mr Fred on Captain Kangaroo?

There was no Mr. Fred on Captain Kangaroo.

There were only three characters named Mr. anything:
  • Mr. Baxter, played by actor James E. Wall - seen from 1974-1981.
  • Mr. Green Jeans, played by actor Hugh Brannum - seen from 1955-1984.
  • Mr. Moose, portrayed by puppeteer Cosmo Allegretti - seen from 1976-1981.

This is not exactly true. There was a blobby cartoon guy on a screen that the Captain would talk to and his name was Fred.
