    Don't think that would happen. Those puppets were made almost 30 years ago and are probably mostly toast (have you seen Scred? He's deteriorated very badly). I like that concept though. Maybe if you ask they could build some Gorch-esce puppets for the show.

    I suppose they could always be rebuilt.

    They'd most likely make Gorch-esce puppets because the performers have to be able to pick up anything and add their own flair to each suggestion, therefore the character essence from those puppets cant be to strong in order for each performer to create a believable and hysterical persona for any of those puppets. Another thing is being intimidated by picking up an already established character (established by the masters!) or trying too hard to focus on capturing that original personality instead of the performance's flow. That's why you don't see per say Harvey Muskrat or the Southern Colonel in Stuffed and Unstrung. The puppeteers would be too flustered.
