Captain Kangaroo First Year Progress Reports

DATE
Year: 1956
Decade: 1950s
Century: 20th (1901-2000)

Captain Kangaroo 1956 progress reports. Lot consists of three identical progress report booklets and a large promotional piece sent to advertisers during the show’s incredibly successful first year.

Booklets were sent to advertisers to promote commercial airtime sales during Captain Kangaroo’s time slot. They cite ratings and statistics persuading advertisers that the children who watch the program will influence their mothers to buy advertised products while shopping together.
