The NBC Saturday Morning Preview Revue (1974)
I cant find anything online about the origin of all those slightly sexualized string puppets. I dont see how they could have made all that just for this one TV Special, surely those puppets were part of some already established act somewhere. At a theme park maybe?
The credits say “Krofft Puppeteers” but that would just be the really big suit puppets we associate with Kroft wouldnt it? Who did those string marionettes?
Oh wait I just watched another youtube video about ” Krofft vs McDonalds” and we see a shot of Sid and Marty Krofft with a string puppet behind them… heres a video documentary with a string puppet on the wall:
OK so the Kroffts did all that. But I still think the vegas showgirls and the circus skit must have existed before this.
