General Information on Paul's Puppets

   Seen here in 2003, Bernie Paul going through one of the drawers of puppets he had made. The shot on the right shows an entire drawer of puppet heads, allowing the attaching of these heads to generic bodies, to help fill out the cast  for various plays.


    Bernie had entire drawers of puppets heads and various pieces. He could tell you just by looking at a puppet or a piece what play that belonged to , and how the story went.

 Bernie would love to show off the puppets and explain in great detail how he made each one work. Above, the stick puppet " Jimmy Cricket "  is being shown, while on the right, a puppet head designed for a local wine ad on tv,   shown in the 1950's,  is being shown off.  Below, you can see a shot of the stage, and below right, Bernie shows the sections of the puppet body he created.

   Punch and Judy

   Bernie Paul made the set of puppets for the classic English puppet show " Punch and Judy " but never actually did the show, according to the Puppet Master in 2004. " This was not a good show for children, where Punch strikes Judy throughout the show with a stick and throws the baby out". However, Bernie did create the puppets on the right, which were carved by hand.
