Show Description: Little Chucky loves to watch TV Westerns. One day, he meets a mysterious cowboy who takes him to a remote town that is being harassed by a seedy group of outlaws. Chucky, pretending to be a local hero, rides into town on his trusty goat, outsmarts the bad guys, and brings justice back to the people... using bananas as his weapon of choice! Three puppeteers and over a dozen handmade puppet characters will have you cheering on the little guy in this hilarious adventure tale!

Mouth and Rod Puppets. Recommended for all ages 4 and up.
