This hat is made of wire coils that have been covered with red and white felt to match the character’s iconic look. The piece includes restored electronic components operated by a switch and controller. These pieces have been added to allow the hat to function as originally intended. The hat now runs on four AA batteries. The hat features a plastic cover on the inside with inset magnets. These magnets attach to a fiberglass skull cap that would attach to the actor’s head to secure the hat to the Cat costume. The fiberglass piece is padded on the inside to allow for a reasonable level of comfort when in use. Though light restoration has been done to allow the mechanics to function, the hat remains in great condition.
This item comes with a Hero Prop Certificate of Authenticity.
