The Sooty Show Sweep Hand Puppet
About this deal
The franchise focuses primarily on three different characters, with the most prominent being the titular character himself – Sooty.
Sooty and Matthew Corbett had appeared on a Christmas episode of They Think It's All Over, attacking Nick Hancock with Sooty's water pistol after Hancock ruled against them in one game.The franchise itself also includes several other puppet characters who were created for television, some of whom became the backbone to performances, and features additional elements including an animated series, two spin-off series for the direct-to-video market, and a selection of toy merchandising.
Sweep, also white not grey, who walks on all fours like a normal dog, but can stand as a biped to play the bugle and so on. Corbett proved popular with viewers and became the overall winner, landing him a job as a regular performer on the BBC children's show Saturday Special, where his puppet immediately appealed to children, turning him into an overnight success. He has since focused on ensuring the survival of the brand with new stage shows and television programmes.There is also the press reports which are critical of the conduct of the Metropolitan Police officers, although they are not individually named. While Creighton remained a part of the programme for a number of series, Longman was given a physical role as co-star in several episodes, alongside her role as Soo's voice actor, with the programme featuring several stories that ventured out into new locations. The overall change involved the use of black dust (or 'soot') upon the ears and nose, which inspired Corbett to change the puppet's name from Teddy to Sooty.
