Humphrey B. Bear

I can remember the very first time I saw one of these Humphrey B. Bear hand puppets, I thought someone had pulled the head off a Metti Humphrey and knocked up a homemade hand glove to make it into a puppet.

Humphrey Bear, the same, but different

As more of these trickled onto eBay over the
years I realised they weren't homemade at all.

I've had my forensic team (me) pull this one apart, found
no makers mark or tag anywhere.

The head is exactly the same size as the Metti and Netta
large Humphrey (even though it doesn't look like it from the picture)
and the markings on the head are identical.

Who made these Humphrey B. Bear hand puppets?

I can't say with 100% accuracy as I don't have any concrete
proof that it's a Metti or Netta as I've never seen one advertised or
one tagged...But, who else could have made him?

If anyone has one that is tagged please send
me an email so I can put this one to rest, thanks.
