B' àbhaist dha Sàra Mhoireasdan agus Donnchadh, a cèile-pòsta, a bhith a' taisbeanadh chuirmean-cluiche Punch agus Judy ann an diofar àiteachan air a' Ghàidhealtachd, a' gabhail a-steach Ulapul, an Dòrnaidh agus Loch an Inbhir. Bha Donnchadh bho theaghlach fhèistearan siubhail; thòisich a sheanair, Iain Moireasdan, aig Soircas Pindar nuair a bha an soircas air chuairt ann an Cataibh agus bhiodh athair, Uilleam Donnchadh Moireasdan, a' taisbeanadh chuirmean-cluiche Punch agus Judy ann an agus mun cuairt Inbhir Nis. Bha na Moireasdanaich ainmeil cuideachd airson an sgilean ann an seatadh chnàimhean.

Anns an earrann èisteachd seo a chaidh a chlàradh anmoch sna 1970an, tha Sàra Mhoireasdan a' bruidhinn ri Greum Farnell mun dreach sònraichte a bha an teaghlach aice a' cur air taisbeanadh Punch agus Judy.

Interviewer: Just coming back to the Punch and Judy, I've been reading a bit about it, and it seems to be in other shows quite rare for the Devil to beat Punch.

Eh, oh no.

Interviewer: In your show it was Punch that -

No, no,

Interviewer: - was beaten, wasn't it, by the Devil?

It was Punch that was beaten. And it's Punch that's always beaten. You see, it's a bible story. You only go so far, and then the Devil's there in the end, to get you. I remember in Auldearn, there was a minister there - Mr. MacWilliam - and we'd been out there two or three times, and he told on one night, he says, 'You know, I thoroughly enjoy your Punchin show.' He says, 'I have been over in France', an he says, 'I've seen Punch and Judy done with live figures and it's exactly as you do it.' He says, 'It's exactly as you do it. You do the proper Punch and Judy', he says, 'All these yins with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck' he says 'are not in it at all.'

We used to have the dog, Toby, but to the Honourable Mrs. Smythe, of Ness Castle (she's dead now of course) she bitterly [dis] approved of it. But yet the dog wasn't hurt, wasn't hurt in any way, because you were talking to the, the dog and he wasn't hurt in any way. He just sat up there and Punch would speak to him and he would, 'Yow, yow, yow, yow, yow', you know, barking and that sort of thing? This was him answering Punch. But there was no ill treatment to the dog, none whatever. It took a long time to get used to without the dog, because he knew at once, whenever the things were being packed, that he was going. Left behind, rather broken hearted. In fact, he died of a broken heart. My husband was in the Second World War.

Interviewer: So was it after the Second World War that the dog was done without, or - ?

Oh no, before the war, before the Second World War started.

Interviewer: And was it because this Mrs. Smythe disapproved or was it - ?

She disapproved. She was one of the head ones of the - She was a very good friend of Duncan's and that, and thought that rather than cause any ill feeling, might as well -

Interviewer: So that must have been what, the 1930s, or something like that, was it, that the dog was - ?

Yes.

Interviewer: And he used to be always dressed up in the collar and - ?

Oh yes.

Interviewer: Yes, yes. What sort of dog was he actually?

A terrier.

Interviewer: Ah yes.

Little fox terrier.

Interviewer: Uh-huh. And it was just a case, really, of him barking when Punch was - ?

That's right, when Punch would speak to him.

Interviewer: Yes. And did he used to sit there all through the show or was it just at one part?

Yes. No, he would sit up there.

Interviewer: And he'd be on what you call the pelmet, was he?

Yes, just on the ledge that's across there.

Interviewer: On the ledge. So what happened to him at the end, d'you know, when the Devil gets Punch, what happened to the dog? Where was he?

Oh yes, that was the sort of the finish of the show. Yes
