With the one off return on Wednesday of my favourite TV puppet Ossie Ostrich, to the Hey Hey It’s Saturday Reunion show, I thiought I would post some clips of other famous puppet.
I have spoken about Bob Clampett’s Time For Beany once before. This puppet show from the late 40s/early 50s was said to be a favourite of Albert Einstein and Groucho Marx. Beany and Ceil also appeared in Clampett’s animated Beany & Cecil show in the 1960s.
These puppets aren’t as sophisticated as Jim Henson’s muppet, which would appear on television from the mid 50s, these being the more tradition hard wooden puppets.
