The theme song was an old French (Medieval I think) tune that Allen got the sheet music for from the music department at Memphis State. We recorded it (royalty free) in the studio with musicians from the music department. Penny flute, lute, cymbals on a stick, and viola. Possibly more. The other puppet was Troyolus the Train Loving Troll. Both he and Ponce de Lion were gifts from Tom Tichner, former puppeteer at 'KNO and the man who created the puppets for "Lilliom" on Broadway. Both puppets were voiced by high school student, John McDonald. — Holden Potter, "All Aboard" creator and producer.
