The Bil & Cora Baird TV Show

Posted by Michael Pinto on May 13, 2007 in Animation |

There’s an amzing article on tv puppet pioneers Bil & Cora Baird (and their marionettes) at Michael Sporn’s Splog:

More Marionettes

“Bil & Cora Baird had ruled the theatrical environs on TV (Bil & Cora Baird Show and Peter & the Wolf) , in theater (Flahooley, Baker Street) and on film (Sound of Music). Yet when the very successful scene in the film, Lili, where Leslie Caron talks to Bil Baird’s marionette, moved to Broadway as the musical, Carnival, it was Jim Henson who built the puppets for the show. A sea change had happened. The marionette had become a hand puppet.”
