*Horn’s Punch & Judy Show is the oldest Punch show in America. This show was started in Baltimore in 1897 by a man named Edward Ross. All of the Punch performances begin and end with merry tunes from Professor Horn’s hand-cranked, organ-grinder’s music box. Including the music, the total length of the show is 20 minutes.
