Tintookies from an Aboriginal word meaning 'little people who come from the sandhills', was an elaboratee marionette musical first staged by creator Peter Scriven at the Elizabethan Theatre in Sydney in 1956. After the success of this production, Tintookie became the generic name for any of the puppets used by the Marionette Theatre of Australia, formed by Scriven under the auspices of the Elizabethan Theatre trust in 1965. The theatre produced innovative large-scale puppet shows with an overtly Australian content for children for more than 20 years, including the landmark productions 'Little Fella Bindi' 1958 and Norman Linday's 'The Magic Pudding' (1960).
The original Tintookies were designed by Peter Scriven in the mid-1950s.
Various other characters were developed by Scriven and his colleagues in the
Marionette Theatre over the following decade.
