Mr. Bungle - Puppets behaving badly

Avant-garde band from Eureka (without the exclamation mark), California that managed to acquire a certain cult status.

Where did Mr. Bungle get the band name from - mr-bungle puppet - Lunchroom MannersIn 1950 a number of American primary schools showed an educational film, Lunchroom Manners, that among others was meant to get the importance of washing hands before dinner across to the children.

The film-makers showed a loutish puppet show character, Mr. Bungle, and let him make all mistakes a dining child could ever make.

The puppet showed a remarkable similarity with Punch, all the more so because we have never seen him wash his hands.

Active: 1985-2004, USA
