Hugo – Man of a Thousand Faces

Released in 1975 by Kenner, Hugo was a hand puppet whose appearance could be altered using a variety of accessories, including wigs, facial hair, false noses and chins, and eye glasses. He came equipped with a non-toxic glue stick that could be used to stick the pieces to the dolls head temporarily.
