Punch and Judy early Christmas gift

Santa Claus, Punch and Judy (1948) Christmas Puppet Show. Puppets teach little children that it's funny to beat others to the ground with a club. If you are wondering why your parents used a paddle on your ass, this is probably a good answer as to where they got the idea. Enjoy!
Punch and Judy is a traditional, popular English puppet show featuring the characters of Punch and his wife Judy. The performance consists of a sequence of short scenes, each depicting an interaction between two characters, most typically the anarchic Punch and one other character. The show is traditionally performed by a single puppeteer, known since Victorian times as a "professor".
The English Punch is associated with the Greek Pan who is associated with Herne, the Hunter in Celtic mythology. We all know who grow up on Herne Hill in London.
