If you grew up in the Los Angeles area, you likely recall the Bob Baker Marionette Theater’s legendary puppet shows — a staple of local pop culture and children’s birthday parties for decades.
Over the weekend, Metro Art and the Theater premiered the above video, Bob Baker Day Meets Union Station. Featuring many vintage puppets and classic songs, it’s a nice ode to L.A. and our region’s busiest transit hub.
And, for those who last saw a Bob Baker show at a birthday party, the video even has a song-and-dance number featuring a singing cake on a little red wagon.
We hope the video brings everyone some smiles and takes you back to another time and a place we dearly miss. For even more virtual adventures, with the historic station presented in 3D, visit the week-long Bob Baker Day here.
