Part animal and part mechanical, Hieronymus the hippopotamus is feeling under the weather. Fortunately, his companion doctor/mechanic is only too eager to play a tune to cheer him up. Big, friendly and always open to a tickle, our pedal-powered giant hippo puppet will bring spectacle and smiles to any event.



Hippochondriac is available for walkabout performances of up to three 40-minute sets per day.

Suitable for outdoor settings or large indoor spaces.

For bookings, please contact our agents Fool’s Paradise.
