Thank you to Glenn & Marianne Taylor

Thanks to Glenn & Marianne Taylor for adopting Rickie-Tik. Mr. Berger bought this sweet little dummy from ventriloquist Peter Rich in July of 1964.

Peter Rich (1921-2005) and Mr. Berger corresponded from 1938 until Mr. Berger's death in 1972. In one of their first letters, Mr. Berger states that he had just 11 dummies and that he was interested in exchanging scripts with Peter.

Frank Marshall made the 30 inch Rickie-Tik dummy as part of his catalog of standard figures (see ad below). This particular dummy had been repainted by someone other than Frank when Peter sold it to W.S. In 1975, Ray Guyll repaired the mechanism and repainted the figure.
