Paul's Puppets, a marionette theater show, was the creation of Bernard and Edith Paul of Linthicum Heights, Maryland. The couple was married in 1930, the same year they began their traveling puppet show. Edith wrote the scripts and made the costumes, while Bernard built the sets and made the puppets. Together they provided the voices that brought the characters to life. Paul's Puppets entertained children at schools, churches, and hospitals around Maryland.
Eventually, they moved into the growing medium of television. Sponsored by Hutzler's department store, the Paul's Puppets TV show began on January 8, 1948 on WBAL-TV in Baltimore Maryland. The 15-minute segments were seen every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 6 p.m. until 1957.
After the television show ended, Paul's Puppets continued performing at the store's main and suburban branch locations into the 1960's and 70's.
