The Professor brings along many of his animal friends that he has met along his journeys. Near the end of the show your kids will be really surprised when the Professor produces a 150 pound baby elephant puppet! This show stealer is named "Packy" and after some comical antics, Packy actually performs some magic, too!

Let the Professor make YOU your child's hero by having him perform at their next party! Please book early, for the Professor schedules weeks in advance.
