10 Puppets that Made it Big on Television

1

Kukla, Fran, and Ollie

Kukla, Fran, and Ollie was a children's show that first hit the airwaves in 1947. Kukla, the leader of the group, resembled a clown but wasn't one; Ollie was Oliver J. Dragon, a feisty dragon with one tooth; and Fran was not a puppet but a big sister figure who kept the two in line. Rounding out the cast were other puppets, including Madame Ooglepuss, a former opera diva; Beulah Witch; and Fletcher Rabbit. Although the show was originally created for children, it quickly became more popular with adults for the character development and humor.
