Find out about Germany’s answer to Mr. Punch …

Kasper is a famous, traditional character in Germany. He appears in puppet plays and books and is very similar to our Mr. Punch.

Kasper has a big nose, colourful clothes and a permanent grin on his face. He never leaves the house without his whip to fight against witches, dragons and even crocodiles! Kasper might be naughty sometimes, but he’s got a heart of gold, and often helps to solve problems.
