PROPS: Hocus Pocus - Flying Witch Mary Puppet
Something from Kenny Ortega’s very fun film Hocus Pocus went up for auction. Which is a flying Witch Mary (Kathy Najimy) puppet from the film. “This articulated rod puppet is constructed from foam-rubber moulded around metal armature. It is adorned with miniature clothes of various materials, and affixed to a resin vacuum cleaner with power cord. The puppet is attached to a pair of metal rods which can be manipulated by puppeteers, and has a metal ring at the top of its head for another rod. This puppet exhibits some signs of wear throughout, including metal armature exposed on one of the feet, some small tears in its clothes, and an exposed plastic protrusion on one of its wrists. Dimensions: 53.25 cm x 30.5 cm x 20.25 cm (21" x 12" x 8")”
This puppet sold on September 30th, 2019 for $2,750 with a Propstore auction.
