Prudence Kitten was created for the BBC by Annette Mills, best known for her partnership with Muffin the Mule. Unlike Muffin, Prudence and her friends were glove pupp[ets rather than marionettes.
After Mills’ death in 1955, her daughter Molly Blake took over performing with Prudence.
Prudence had a sister called Primrose and a brother-in-law – pipe-smoking merchant seaman cat – called Nelson. Her canine friend was called Puffer Dog.
