LUCY CAT (10106)

Uh oh. See that cat? The one with the bum eye, playing the fiddle for pennies by the bus stop? That’s Lucy. Better check your wallet and hide your pet fish, ‘cuz she’s bad news. Don’t let that sad tune fool you -- she’s been giving the slip to the Constable since she was lapping sour milk from an old tambourine with the rest of her unfortunate litter. She’s in with that shifty band of alley cats who caterwaul behind the music shop at all hours of the night. On Thursdays they hold closed door “Knitting Club” meetings. That’s what the sign says anyway. Lucy is 11 inches tall and has movable arms. He is available here by himself or in a PUPPET SET with five of his companions.



Lionel Lion is not your average lion lounging around the jungle while his favorite mate brings home a wildebeest to serve for dinner... No, you won't see Lionel standing on an outcropping of rock looking down at his subjects below. Not interested in pursuing his heritage as "King of the Jungle," Lionel migrated to London here he went to Oxford and majored in business applications. Now the successful CEO of a large railroad company (electric, of course), Lionel is looking toward retiring "away from it all." Perhaps, he confides, "... on an outcropping of rock..." somewhere in a jungle, far, far away. While Lionel is a Giant of Industry, here he is only 12 inches tall. Our Lionel Lion has a very expressive movable mouth. Click on the image to see a more detailed picture of Lionel.



Grandson of the famous lion who roars at the beginning of motion pictures, Lampwick was named after his father Lampwick Lion who stared in the local San Jose, California children's morning TV show: "Hocus Pocus."


LEON LION (#32017)

As Leon likes to point out to just about anyone who will listen, lions are generally known as "The King of Beasts." Adding to Leon's prominence, is the little known fact that most packaged goods carry his trademark somewhere upon them (ie. Tear along the dotted Lion). Leon is 10 inches tall and, no.. he doesn't come with any dots!



The "King of Beasts" is well represented by this up and coming new actor from the Broadway play: The Lion King (c). In fact, Leonard is so good at acting that you won't believe that he is just a 13 inch tall Hand Puppet. If he choses to do so, he may convince you he's a 15 foot alligator... or maybe a 5 inch parakeet! He's THAT good.

Ted here likes to tell people that he's a thespian because of the startled look he gets. He then goes on to explain that means 'actor' and that's his profession. His most famous role was in television when he starred as the "Put a tiger in your tank!" tiger for a major oil company. He says it was a bit cramped and his fur smelled of gasoline for months afterward... but it paid well. Our Theodore Tiger is 12 inches tall and has a very expressive movable mouth.

People are always asking Twiggy how he got his black stripes and his answer is always truthful and simple: "I was born with them!" So one day Twiggy decided to spice up the story a bit and see if anyone caught on. He said that he was born with back fur and on his first birthday his mother gave him a paint set. Since the prettiest and brightest color in the set was orange, that's the color he decided to paint his fur. Of course his mom was very upset with her new orange colored son so she took him to the river where she scrubbed him with soap and sand for three whole days trying to get the orange paint off. Unfortunately, she could only get small stripes of the orange off and so that's why Twiggy says he looks like he has orange fur with black stripes. Twiggy is 10 inches tall.



Terry's dad, Ferocious Tiger and his mom, Voracious Tiger, in keeping with family tradition, named their infant son Terrible Tiger. And, as often happens with such labels, they soon prove to be quite inappropriate. Terrible was anything but terrible. A more cuddly, lovable, polite vegetarian there never was and because no one could say his name and keep a straight face, everyone agreed to call him by his nickname 'Terry' instead. Still, Terry does retain one family trait and that's his terrible roar.



As most of you know, cats do not like the rain... mostly because rain is so... wet! Big cats are really no exception to this rule. Of course, big cats like Thunder Tiger here, often go fishing by splashing out into rushing streams and scooping fish right out of the water... but no-one says they have to like doing it. On the contrary, Thunder would much rather have his fresh fish (with tartar sauce and a lemon wedge on the side) served to him on the nice, dry, bank of the stream . Thunder is 12 inches tall.



Named after his favorite TV show 'Crusader Rabbit', Rags has been fond of rabbits ever since he was a little tiger cub and was adopted by a family of fluffy bunny rabbits. Even though Rags soon found that he could out-hop and out-run his half-brothers and sisters, he didn't do very well at what most fluffy bunny rabbits refer to as 'their main calling' which is to offer baskets of colored eggs to children during Easter.* Every time Rags would say "Happy Easter" the children would run and hide because it sounded so ferocious. It is unfortunate that in tiger language, "Happy Easter" sounds almost exactly like "I'm Going to Eat You." As a result of this, Rags now only speaks when you pat his head.

This puppet has a Sound Box hidden inside. Just press the back of his head and Rags will speak to you! If you are brave enough to hear Rags speak right now, press the button under his picture.

CHEETAH (2913)

The cheetah is the only feline with non-retractable claws and pads so they cannot grip things. This means that they cannot climb vertical trees, but they can reach easily accessible branches. The reason for this difference becomes clear when you note that the cheetah has by far the fastest land speed of any living animal — between 70 and 75 mph and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to over 62 mph in three seconds. Can you imagine what a stuck claw could do here? Our Cheetah Hand Puppet is 19 inches long and 12 inches tall and has a movable mouth. Click on image for a larger view.

One day these three Domestic Shorthairs decided to form a group and break into show business. They practiced their tunes for many nights before testing out their talents on real live people. Everyone at the audition was very polite and clapped loudly. But the problem is... no one ever wants to hear them sing a second time. Go figure? On the left is Tony (NP8074M), in the middle is Perry (NP8076M), and on the right is Bing (NP8073M). Each is 15 inches long.
