We invite you to see this old recording of The Bil Baird Marionettes and Cora, who has released Gary Friedman through his magazine Puppetry News. See also the written report on the same issue Gary published on its website. Bil Baird was primarily known for his puppets, appearing with them on television shows with Ed Sullivan, Jack Paar and Sid Caesar and in his own 1950 series, ‘Life with Snarky Parker,” together with his wife Cora.

We also include the famous marionette puppet sequence for the song “The Lonely Goatherd” (in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music, 1965, an American musical film directed by Robert Wise and starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer.”) which was produced and performed by Bil Baird and Cora Eisenberg-Baird, the leading puppeteers of the day.
