The Superior Space Port (also known as the Captain Video Space Port) made by toymaker T. Cohn, Inc. in the early 1950s. The metal space-theme fort with its associated plastic vehicles and space men (and aliens), which were made by the Lido Toy Company, was merchandise related to "Captain Video and His Video Rangers," a weekly television show that aired on the DuMont network from 1949-1956. "Captain Video" was considered the U.S.'s and world's first television show with a space flight theme. Such space-themed forts illustrate how heavily space science fiction drew upon another American popular culture genre, the Western.
Collector Michael O'Harro donated this toy to the Museum in 1993.
