I had to share this picture with everyone here. I hope everyone can see this picture. Take a good long look at each child. They interpret things different when a puppet gives them a reason for an emotion. Nothing else does that. If it was a monster, they'd all be screaming, a cartoon, they'd all be laughing.

That is a fantastic photo.  I'd never seen it before, but I believe you interpretation is dead on.

Thats great Sonny....... It does appear that each child has a different look or expression on there face. It is true a picture is worth a thousand words.

Great photo, Sonny. The looks on those faces is one of the reasons that I loved teaching kids. They are a laugh a minute, and still have a sense of wonder. Here are a couple of links to larger versions of the picture...

The French government subsidizes some puppet troupes, and some public parks have permanent outdoor puppet stages. They often perform shows starring the traditional French puppet character Guignol and his friends. They originated in the city of Lyon in 1808, and aren't exact counterparts of Punch and Judy, but are similar.

PS
Speaking of children's expressions... I always thought that this photo by Diane Arbus was a classic...

I live in Lyon...but on the outskirts of Chicago, Ill. Is this telling me something? WOW!

Thanks for the background on this photo.

Lets designate a childs picture page for puppet shows. I think a neat collection of children's face watching  puppet shows would be great. Seeing those faces just makes me want to build puppets and do shows. Great feeling.

Cool picture Sonny. It highlights to me that even though it was taken back in 1963, kids and there reactions to puppets have not changed in 46 years.
As I'm pretty sure some of the kids in your photo were at my last Tall Ted show.
