Puppet Birds

Garfield Goose - White feathered puppet character created by Frazier Thomas for TV station WBKB in Chicago. Garfield lived in a mock medieval castle and pretended with his children viewers to be "King of the United States." Garfield communicated by making clicking sounds with his metal (tin) beak.

The "subjects" of his royal court included:

  • Frazier Thomas (the series creator) as the Prime Minister dressed in full regalia of medals and epaulets

  • Christmas, his nephew

  • Beauregard Burnside III, an aging, toothless bloodhound

  • Macintosh the Mouse, in charge of the castle's mailroom

  • Romberg the Rabbit, liaison between the puppets and the Prime Minister.

Begun in 1952, GARFIELD GOOSE & FRIENDS was the longest running puppet show on television. See also CHILDREN'S SHOW HOSTS: "Frazier Thomas"
