Jester is one of André Toulon's living puppets and is featured in each of the Puppet Master films to date. He is often credited as the leader of the puppets.


The puppet stands at 1'8" and weighs 1.5 pounds. Before he became a puppet, Jester was a man named Hans Seiderman, a bookkeeper who loved to play pranks and tell jokes and who was killed by the Nazis when his jokes went too far. He was used for evil under puppet masters Neil Gallagher, André Toulon, and Dr. Magrew, all whom he turned against in the end.


Jester is like the watch man of the group, looking out for danger, keeping the enemy occupied long enough for the puppets to strike.

Power Ability

Jester has the ability to rotate three portions of his face: his forehead, middle face, and chin. He can show five expressions: happy, devious, sad, angry and surprised. Jester can fit through small places where the other puppets can't.


Out of all the puppets, Jester has the most designs. In Puppet Master 1-5, Jester had red clothes, his sleeves were mixed in red and black, and he had a red hat. In Puppet Master 6-8, Jester was all red, mixed on his sleeves were red and blue, and had a blue hat. In Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys, Jester was all orange. In Puppet Master: Axis of Evil, Jester is red, with his sleeves mixed with red and green, and he has a curly red hat.

Common Companion

Jester's most common companion is Pinhead in films III-V, and Blade in Curse of the Puppet Master. Jester also spends time with Leech Woman in Curse of the Puppet Master. He is cared for by the other puppets. In Puppet Master, the puppets turned on their master because he threw Jester abusively, and in part II,the puppets tried to find the formula for the starving puppet.


Jester’s main weapon is his Scepter, though he only carried it in Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys. Most of the time he would just pick up anything he could use as a weapon, like a scalpel or syringe. In Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys his arm was damaged by a fire and was replaced with a strong mace attachment.
