From Vermont, Peter Schumann cofounded the Bread and Puppet Theater in 1963. He began making crankies in the 1960s and is responsible for naming them crankys (spelled with a "y"). These early crankys inspired a "first
wave" of cranky artists.
The Bread and Puppet Theater is based in Glover, Vermont. They celebrated their 50th anniversary. An article from the Christian Science Monitor
in 2014, when the Bread and Puppet Theater were celebrating their 50th anniversary. Read it here.
