For many of us, our memories of Ruth Prins as “Wunda Wunda” or “The Story Lady” are in black and white. That’s how we saw her at the time on our black-and-white TV sets.
Here are color photos of her costume and many of her cloth puppets and stuffed animals. First are her hats, then three versions of her costume. her daughter Debra says the costumes were made by a German seamstress, Bobbi Johnson, whose husband Lloyd worked for KING-TV.
