The Crocodile

From The Brighton Toy and Model Index
Punch and Judy characters: Punch - Judy - The Baby - The Clown - The Constable - The Hangman - The Devil - The Crocodile - The Doctor - The Forgotten Characters


The Crocodile is primarily concerned with the string of sausages and will steal them from Punch and bite him on the nose. A few Professors will do a variation where Punch gets confused and believes the Crocodile is actually a cat.

Sometimes Punch will defeat the crocodile and sometimes it will beat him. The Crocodile scenes tend to involve heavy audience participation, with the children shouting to Punch to warn him about the Crocodile while he remains oblivious.
