In the late 1970s, Spain got its own version of the vintage hand puppets made by Child Guidance in the USA, to tie in with the Spanish dub Abrete Sesamo.
Vicma produced hand puppets of Epi (Ernie), Blas (Bert), Trudy (Betty Lou), Sherlock Hemlock, Profesor Siesta (Professor Hastings) and Felipe el Sonrisas (Guy Smiley).
Version two also included Koko el Pupas (Grover), Oscar and Triqui el Monstruo (Cookie Monster) and Toccata and Mordicus.
Finger puppets were produced of Bert and Ernie.
Also they produced soft plastic finger puppets like Child Guidance had produced in 1973 and 1974.
The puppets were also used in posed photos in European merchandise, including puzzles and magazines.
