Toy “Pugs” Fight Rousing Battle (Jan, 1933)
Toy “Pugs” Fight Rousing Battle
A PUGILISTIC encounter by puppets two feet high and manipulated from the sidelines is the latest in amusements. Dressed in prize fight garb, they stand up in the ring and swing gloves at each other. Their actions are guided by wheels in the grips of the men playing the game.
A referee in the ring judges the points scored in the five rounds of one minute each. The point of the chin is the susceptible place for a “haymaker,” and when that is struck the manikin goes down for the count.
