(Tony Urbano Productions, 1978) An incredible pair of vintage puppets created for the New Mickey Mouse Club television series in 1978. These puppets depict "The Sleuth" and "Professor Nefarious", inspired by Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty, and were used during segments on the New Mickey Mouse Club. Created by legendary puppeteer Tony Urbano, these puppets come with their original storage crates and have been restored to functioning condition. The Sleuth puppet was operated by Mouseketeer Lisa Whelchel, whose original luggage tags are still on The Sleuth's storage crate. The puppets measure approximately 36" tall and are in very good condition with minor wear from use. Special shipping arrangements will apply, please contact us for estimates and information.
