Hurvinek was created to be Spejbl´s sole child. Hurvinek first appeared on stage together with Spejbl in an encore to the evening performance of the comedy "Honest House" by Rudolf Nesvera played in the Pilsen Puppet Theatre on May 2, 1926.
The present figures of Spejbl and Hurvinek were made in 1964 based on a design of Radko Haken, a famous member of the ensemble. His design added more poetical features to the original grotesque figures.
Please, note that each marionette is an original piece of art and it may slightly differ from the pictures above. For example the clothes or the hair colour may be different, depending on the availability of the materials.
