Bob Hope articulated armature and replacement animation heads from Bekins Van Lines commercial. A collection of Bob Hope puppet elements for a Bekins Van Lines commercial. The sculpting is attributed to Henry Lion. The collection includes 25 Bob Hope heads with “Bekins” hat, two Bob Hope heads without hats, one Bob Hope master head mold with rod, and the functional poseable articulated armature measureing approximately 14 in. tall. The armature is dressed in tan work clothes, with hand-stitched “Bekins Van” on the back, and features leather gloves and shoes. Atop the figure is a plaster head with “Bekins” hat; curiously, this is the “Punchy” head used in George Pal’s Together in the Weather (1946) Puppetoon.
