Not very "PC" nowadays, the shows display violence and end with a hanging scene!
|Punch & Judy is a puppet show usually performed outdoors.|

|Now joined by Mrs. Punch|
The hanging scene, for the sake of good taste I haven't shown
the macabre climax of this gruesome part of the plot!
|Mr. Punch being visited by a ghost following the hanging scene.|
To non-British viewers, or anyone not familiar with the full plot of a traditional Punch & Judy show, this may all sound very bizarre.
A non-violent alternative show is usually offered to the audience these days but usually declined in favour of the full, violent version.
Oh yes, it's primary target audience is for children!
