    That's interesting...I guess I haven't seen a lot of the middle years of Bear, I've mostly seen early episodes and last-season ones, so the difference seemed very marked to me and I would never have expected Bear Pattern Baldness as a possible cause. ;) Thanks so much for the info!

    Great, photos, all James. I have to ask you do you take a different approach when building the marionettes as opposed to the hand and rod puppets, or is basically the same with just more consideration for the movement? I particularly love the Griffin and Dragon marionettes....absolutely beautiful detail...

    umm, i guess i do,

    i can be more loose with neck and body lengths and withs, since a hand does not have to work it, weight is an issue as is making joints that wont get stucks and will move well with little effort on the puppeteers part, they can be much more complicated

    Thanks for the response, James. I was showing my sister your site last night and she also was very impressed. What were the Canadian puppets (the bear, pig, etc.) made for? Those were a personal favorite. :)

    Wow! My daughter loves BEAR!!!
    She has some autistic traits, and there is nothing much that gets her attention. But Bear does!!!
