Notes / History Perhaps the oldest puppetry tradition in Europe, the Punch and Judy show evolved from the 18th century commedia dell-arte.

In the early shows, Mr. Punch appeared without his wife. He is famed for fighting everyone from his partner, the local doctor, the policeman, the hangman and finally the devil.
