Captain Vegetable is a superhero on Sesame Street who encourages kids to eat vegetables. He looks like a rabbit with a cape and always carries a carrot and a stalk of celery. His home base is a secret garden somewhere in New Jersey.

He debuted on Sesame Street in 1982, in the eponymous song "Captain Vegetable," where he was performed by Jim Henson. His converts included Andy and Eddie. The Captain popped up a few times later on throughout Season 15, performed by Richard Hunt.

Captain Vegetable is made from two different Anything Muppets: the Lavender (for Jim Henson's portrayal) and the Large Lavender Live Hand (for Richard Hunt's portrayal).

In Episode 4013, John Leguizamo portrayed Captain Vegetable as a super vegetable hero. Garbed in a veggie-themed outfit, he sang the same tune as his predecessor. Accompanied by Elmo, Captain Vegetable stages an intervention for candy addict Sandy.
