These commercials appeared in different forms on What's My Line. I wonder whatever happened to these puppets? The Four Shavians for Remington Shavers.

That's a really good barbershop quartet, whoever they were. And the puppets are done by Bil Baird. The way I know his name is from the musical from the 60's, The Sound of Music. If you've ever seen that, there is a scene where the children put on a show with marionettes, and that was his work. I remember seeing his name in credits.

Ohhhhh! Wow!! Now that I think of it, those puppets do look similar in face to the Sound of Music ones! Neat bit of information! I like it! 🙂

Yes, they do have the same style of faces. And speaking of Remington commercials, here is a famous one from the 70's that is a little unusual because the head CEO of the company is doing the commercial. I imagine they sold a lot of razors with these ads.
