Norman Hetherington

7th December 2010

We say goodbye to one of Australia’s leading puppeteers. Many of us know Norman Hetherington as Mr Squiggle – the man in the moon.

Norman’s presence at UNIMA 2008, the World Festival of Puppetry in Perth, rounded off his amazing life of dedication and ability to entertain people of all ages.

It was a joy to watch Norman sit in his exhibition of famous puppets at the State Library and share his stories and experience with anyone and everyone.

We will miss him and his warm friendly manner.

The puppetry world and millions of fans will mourn his passing, but his art will live on for future generations.

All of us at Spare Parts have been touched by his vision and will remember him well.
