Original production Howdy Doody marionette, not seen on screen but associated with the original television production. The piece was originally consigned to an auction by an electrical engineer who worked on the show in the 1950s. This piece was an identical doll to those used on screen, built by the show's prop man Scott Brinker with hands and boots likely by Velma Dawson. The remaining clothing is from the 1970s when the puppet was used on tours of college campuses. The neck shows a more recent repair. The engineer was given this puppet to experiment with having the marionette electrically wired so that they could manipulate his movements with radio controls.
