Red Buttons (born Aaron Chwatt, February 5, 1919–July 13, 2006) was an American actor, comedian and songwriter. He played Bracken in C.H.O.M.P.S.


Aaron Chwatt got his stage name when he was a lad working at Dinty Moore's Tavern in the Bronx as a singer/waiter. He had to wear a uniform with 48 buttons, and with his red hair, people started referring to him as Red Buttons.

He joined ASCAP in 1963 and wrote several popular songs (which he often personally performed), including "Strange Things Are Happening" and "The Ho-Ho Song".
