First puppet?

Kevin told me he thought this was the first "puppet" he built, probably at age 12 or so. The little fellow under "glass" (plastic) is carved 3-D from wood and has a moving mouth which opens and closes when a string below the picture is pulled. I believe Kevin used a cartoon character from one of Dave Miller's "Ventoons" as his inspiration. For 25 years or so the piece hung in my shop. Recently it has been on the wall of Kevin's shop.
