(He had a 'twin' named 'Double Doody' believe it or not)
And, of course there was 'Flubadub' a bizarre bird-like marionette and the grouchy 'Mr. Bluster'.
Among the 'real' people on the show was Indian Chief Thunderthud and the gorgeous Princess Summerfallwinterspring who was played (for two years, 1947-1949) by Judy Tyler (born Judith Mae Hess in Milwaukee on October 9, 1933).
Judy was born into a 'show biz' family, her mother danced in the 'Ziegfeld Follies' and her father played trumpet with the Paul Whiteman and Benny Goodman Orchestras.
In 1957 she co-starred with Elvis Presley in 'Jailhouse Rock'. Just prior to the film's release she was killed in a car wreck with her second husband, actor Greg Lafayette, on July 4, 1957 on U.S. Route #287 just north of Rock River, Wyoming.
Her death affected the young Elvis to such an extent that he was never able to watch the film.
