DEBUT 2000

Captain Cabbage is a vegetable drill instructor who appeared in a 2000 episode of Sesame Street, leading his squad of vegetables through marching in the Sesame Street Healthy Food Parade.

When he and the vegetables stop in front of a lonely Big Bird, he proceeds to do a roll call, but discovers the yellow squash is absent. Big Bird, who resembles the vegetable, decides to grab a drum and fill in. With a blow of his whistle, Captain Cabbage leads Big Bird and the other vegetables through cadences as they march down the street.
