Floppy Returns To Iowa State Fair
CREATED Aug. 7, 2013
Des Moines, IA - Governor Terry Branstad will have a special guest at the Iowa State Fair.
Floppy, the beagle puppet, starred on "The Floppy Show" and came to life through the ventriloquism of Duane Ellett.
When Ellett died in 1987, his family donated Floppy and other puppets to the State Historical Society.
After the fair, Floppy will come to Omaha for repairs at the Gerald R. Ford Conservation Center, then it'll be returned to the State Historical Museum.
The Iowa State Fair starts Thursday, August 8th.
