This is the intro for items C11670 and C11671 Hollywood on BroadwayMarionettes by Frank Paris and Sky HighchiefFrank Paris and Sky Highchief are two of the most respected and talented Master Puppeteers and Puppet Artisans of the last 50 years. Frank Paris was Buffalo Bob’s predecessor and can be credited with the creation of the NBC Puppet Show that eventually became the Howdy Doody Show. The Hollywood on Broadway puppets were used in television variety specials of the same name which aired in the 1970s. The puppets, originally numbered 65, and were created with all the magic of the Paris and Highchief team expertly mimicking the most famous of Hollywood stars. Exceptional detail and artistry in the likenesses, faces, bodies and accessories raise what was considered a craft to the highest art form.
