"High on a hill lived a lonely goatherd, Lay-ee ode lay-ee ode lay-hee hoo." Whenever the Sound of Music was on TV when I was a kid I had to sit through all that singing just to watch the best part of the movie ... the marionette show. The actual puppets made by Bill Baird are on exhibit at the Charles H. Macnider Museum in Mason City Iowa. The museum has an awesome collection of his work including Winne the Pooh and the Wizard of Oz. This is just a small sample of his work. If you're in the area its a must see just so you can say, "I saw those!" when the Sound of Music comes on during the holidays.
