In another thread I decided I was going to try and remember any bits or gags I did when I did kids parties. And that was in the early 70s. I had one of the Card Ducks. I don't remember reading Pretty Sneaky, but I had some gags I would do. I'm assuming Don Alan beat me to them, but, just in case, here they are:

Along with one card that was just a regular letter, I would force a Y and a U. So the first person, with the regular card was asked to think of his letter. Of course, just before that I would say the traditional, "Make your mind a blank" and the duck would pull out a blank card. Now he would think of the letter and the duck got it.

Next I would go to the one with the Y and ask, "So tell me your letter and the duck will find it." Of course, they answered Y and I could continue the gag of saying, "Because the duck needs to hear the letter." With kids that gag could go on and on because they would laugh at the magician's error. Well, after finding the letter I would go to the U kid and say, "Well, now you know. All you have to do is say your letter out loud and duck will find it" And they would say U and I would go, "No, not me. You have to say it. Say it" and once again U and the gag goes on with "No, I don't say it. You say it." They say U and I say, "No, I don't mean you say you I mean you say your letter." And on and on.

And I did a lot of this in Miami with bilingual kids so sometimes I could add a C and think they were answering with a Yes when I asked if they knew their letter and could call it out.

Anyway, that's what I remember from those old days.

One of my favorite quotes: "A critic is a legless man who teaches running."

I agree that the Hamilton version is great!! Mine is about 65 years old and works perfectly.
