Original concept art by Rolly Crump, of one of the Marionette designs for Knott's Bear-y Tales.
Initially when the attraction was designed as the 'Gypsy Faire', the story involved Jessie and Sascha who make puppets in their marionette factory. This story line would later evolve into the Bear-y Family selling Jams, Jellies, and Pies. The marionettes themselves were scrapped as the center focus, and instead were relocated as part of the Puppet Show in the Country Fair scene in the finale.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
