Subject: [Puptcrit] Topo puppet

Several years ago we had an exhibit of Rene and his Artists.  One of the
puppets was the 'Poppin Fresh' dough boy that, if I recall correctly,
Rene said was operated like Topo.   It was used in 'Mark Wilson's Magic
Circus' circa 1970.   It 'stood' on Mark's shoulder and they bantered
between acts...a 'live' commercial.
So you may want to get in touch with Rene and ask him how it was done.
