Punch and Judy - Doug Anderson the "Magic Clown"

Look, I know that Punch and Judy have been a puppet tradition for decades, but when you put it on a record without the benefit of watching it, it's just a story about a guy who repeatedly hits his wife and baby with a stick. He also almost hangs, but tricks the policeman into getting his own foot caught in the noose. By the time it's all over Punch has gone to Hell (I guess that's what the picture is showing) and (SPOILER ALERT) kills the Devil! And it's all narrated by Doug Anderson the "Magic Clown" who does his best to remind us that it's all pretend. Enjoy!

The policeman's foot gets caught? They've already cleaned the story up considerably from those fun-filled days of yore when the policeman got hung by his neck until dead.
