Coleman the Sasquatch

Our resident little joker in the Wump Mucket Puppets troupe. Would you believe that this puppet is 35+ years old? Just don't tell him that.

Wow He looks great for his age. !

Yes he does look great, must be the exercise he gets stealing picnic baskets!

I ordered new faux fur a few days ago to build a new "Coleman" with a better mouthplate, and probably

arms.  I bought the original around 1973-74 at a fun fair that I attended as a child.  I added the googly eyes, and of course his personality.  For many years this puppet lived in a box without a name, then when my daughter was very young I pulled him out to be the companion to "Cyril the Sea Serpent".  The act just grew from there.  Eleanor used to call him "Furry Guy" (we still do at home).  When I started performing in public last year I dubbed him "Coleman" in tribute to cryptozoologist Loren Coleman, and after the camping gear that I used as a boy.  Thanks for all your positive comments!
