Captain Kangaroo classic navy blue suit screen-worn from the early years of the program. In fact, the jacket is credited with inspiring the Kangaroo moniker due to its oversize pockets. The grandfatherly Captain delighted viewers with surprises or carrots for Bunny Rabbit produced from the giant pockets. Prior to the red suit jacket, Captain Kangaroo wore navy blue for the first 17 seasons of the series. Custom suit includes single-breasted jacket with four brass nautical-style buttons and grey trim in approximate size 40; navy blue trousers with matching trim in approximate size 38 x 28; black suspenders. Accompanied by a light blue pocket square and metal pin embossed with the Captain's name and face. In very good condition save for moth holes to right side of jacket between top two buttons and top of right shoulder.
