A troop of puppeteers were caught mistreating their puppets by a girl backstage after their show. Before the girl went to sleep that night her sadness was so strong that her curse came true. that curse was that the puppeteers would know what it felt like to be hurt and mad to do things out of there control.
The oldest written records of puppetry can be found in Ancient Greece. dating from the 5th century BC.The Greek word translated as “puppet” is “νευρόσπαστος” which means “drawn by strings or string-pulling”
