Puppet Scripts

Question: Can we use your ventriloquist dialogue books such as Gramps & Granny Giggles for puppet shows? We are starting up a puppet team. If so how many puppets in some plays?

Answer: Yes, most ventriloquist dialogues can be adapted for use by two puppets from a puppet stage. Gramps & Granny Giggles, however, is not a book of dialogues. Rather, it is a collection of jokes and gags written in dialogue format so performers can add one or more to their favorite dialogues. Here's just one, for example:

F: I've finally reached the METAL age.
V: How's that?
F: I've got GOLD in my teeth, SILVER in my hair, and LEAD in my pants.

The above joke was obviously written for use with a gramps or granny puppet, but if you simply change the pronoun the joke can be used by any type/age puppet when referring to someone of the senior crowd. Just as funny or even more so.

The book, Gramps & Granny Giggles - Vol. 1, is among those I have listed for eBay auctions ending this morning. I also have several Puppet Script books listed. Be sure to check out: The Puppet Show Vols.1 & 3. Click Here
