Tünnes und Schäl

Two figures from Hänneschen-Theater, the puppet theater of Cologne.
Tünnes ('Tony') is good natured and has a rural, farmer-type of common sense and cleverness. Schäl can refer to the squint-eyes of the two figures or also a term meaning two-faced or iniquitous in the Kölsch dialect.
