Canadian puppeteer John Conway (1922-2003)

Did you know:  Canadian puppeteer John Conway (1922-2003) is the innovative and talented artist behind the memorable characters Uncle Chichimus and Hollyhock. These two puppets were icons of the early 1950s and appeared on the very first broadcast of the CBC Sept. 8, 1952. They quickly became the broadcasters unofficial mascots and were among the first Canadian television celebrities to become house hold names.
