I have the puppet of Sir Kreemy Knut - well actually two versions for the puppet was changed when a new artist drew the graphic. The puppets were made by Buster Stavordale. The Staavordale Marionettes appeared at the Festival of Britain, and also toured, with the Sharp's Puppet Theatre. S.K.K. and the Parrot acted as comperes to the show.

This is my great-uncle. My father's grandfather, RJ Kelly, illustrated newspapers before WWI. One of his advertising jobs was for Sharps Toffee, basing the look of their mascot on his son Howard, my father's uncle, a dapper man by all accounts. My father can remember seeing these ads and being told, "that's your uncle Howard."
