Sidney Kittinger's Puppet Theatre on WWL-TV in 1957

Sidney Kittinger's Puppet Theatre TV series on WWL-TV in New Orleans was highly acclaimed. Sidney designed the puppets and sets and his wife, LoWayne, wrote the shows. Reporter Ted Liuzza lamented the show's demise due to a lack of sponsorship in his column on December 27, 1957.

Sidney and Anna Gaule operated the puppets. Blond haired Cheri Lee was the show's only "human" star.
