Instant Jerry Mahoney & Knucklehead Smiff Collection


Well the title got your attention. This is a sale for a pair of 24″ tall ventriloquist dolls. First is an early composition Jerry Mahoney from the 1950’s. He does have some age cracks and chipping but his mouth still works when you pull on the string.

He is all there and still looks very good. The second is the much rarer Knucklehead Smiff also 24″ tall. They are dressed in the style suits used by Paul Winchell when he released his toy figures in 1966. Knucklehead’s mouth does not function because the pull string is missing.

He has a few paint rubs on one eyebrow and he is from the early 1960’s. The figures display very well and if you are a Jerry Mahoney fan are a must for your collection.
