A Perky Pig Marionette made by Pelham Puppets.

The "Pinky and Perky" line of SL puppets were first introduced by Pelham in 1962.

On the original TV show, Pinky wore red and Perky wore blue, but this distinction was not particularly clear on black-and-white television, so Perky wore a beret. However, in the early run of these puppets, Pelham released Pinky with a hat and Perky without.

After 1970, both of the pigs were given hats (as shown by this Perky model).
