Ventriloquist Roger DeCourcey's Nookie Bear

I decided that I had to share pictures of this cute vent bear with everyone. Roger DeCoursey, a very well know ventriloquist from England, … made a name for himself using a stuffed teddy bear named Nookie. He even had his own TV show.

That bear became very popular and in the mid 1970’s and Roger put his bear on the market for sale. Today they are a bit hard to come by especially in the US as they were not exported as far as I know.

The bear stands 24″ tall and has moving mouth and crossing eyes which are operated by a pull string. For the mouth your hand goes inside. I just think he is the cutest and wanted all to see him.
