This little nugget of puppety goodness, though its been in circulation on the web for a while, recently resurfaced over at PuppetBuilding.com. The article was originally published in a 1969 issue of Women’s Day Magazine and includes a play, The Purple-Necked, Black Bearded Blatch, written by Jerry Juhl, and patterns and instructions for four puppets, the characters in the play. You can’t get much more “vintage Muppet” than this!
Here’s the article – Script, Pattern & Instructions
And, for your convenience, here’s the pattern pieces, full-size and ready to be printed – Full Size Pattern Print
Judging from the size of the pattern, it appears the puppets are just the right size for kids. Have fun!
