This item is an original. Top Motion Animation Puppet from a 1950's or 1960's American movie or television show. Unfortunately, we do not know what movie or television show it is from.
It is a high quality fabricated puppet both inside and out based on the artistic design and the construction for that time period. The puppet, because of it's age, is not animatable in regard to the exterior.
Is in very good shape and could be used again. The exterior is made from latex rubber and cotton and.The eyes are made from acrylic or glass spheres and have been painted. Armature is made from steel and aluminum and aluminum armature wire for the tentacles armatures. My Uncle Rex Merrick worked for Universal studios in California in the 50's and 60's.
These monsters came out of a box that had been stored for years after his death. Uncle Rex used to scare us with these monsters when we were being too loud at night. He would bring one, two or all three in, depending on how rowdy we were, and set them on our dresser, nightstand or bookshelves so that we would calm down and go to sleep. With a stern warning he would say'if you're not quiet the monsters will get you.
He told us that each one of these was used to make movies. I remember the movie the cyclops was in because when we would watch it we would say'there's Uncle Rex's monster. I originally had three of these creatures.Out of those two only one was I able to locate the movie it was in.
