Punch and Judy Everything you want to know about the famous puppet show, ranging from scripts to history. For more Punch, see also The Punch Page (many resources, but not updated since 2000); the Punch and Judy College of Professors (professional Punch & Judy performers); and "Prof." Glyn Edwards' Punch and Judy Page (homepage of a Punch & Judy puppeteer).

I've been on a Punch and Judy kick too, triggered by two weird and excellent books: Russell Hogan's Riddley Walker, and Neil Gaiman's Mr. Punch.

I thought it was just a Marillion song...

As a kid, I would occasionally have really terrible nightmares that I couldn't get out of - they all started with the same Punch and Judy skit. As soon as I saw that curtain open, I'd struggle to wake up before Judy started hitting Punch. If it got that far, then the next dream would be REALLY bad, stay-awake-with-the-lights-on-the-rest-of-the-night-bad.

As an adult, they still scare the crap out of me.
