When Toulon says to Tunneler that he is always the first in line for dinner, it is hinting that he was a slave to the Nazi mines when he was a human and was starved to death by them. See more »
In the beginning when Lt. Stein confronts the Toulons, Tunneler and Jester are featured in a few separate moments watching the confrontation from behind a curtain. In this same scene, Elsa Toulon puts Six-Shooter into the puppet cabinet, and Tunneler and Jester can both be seen already inside the cabinet as well, essentially putting them in two places at once.

At the end of the credits, Six-Shooter's laugh can be heard. See more »
The most imaginative and best-acted title in the long-running PUPPETMASTER series, Part 3 is actually a prequel that details how Andrte Toulon came to create his puppets during the dark days of World War II. The Nazis wants to use Toulon's secrets to create an army of the undead, and that's when the fun begins. Toulon sics his killer puppets on the Nazis, to spectacularly bloody effect. The puppets are the good guys in this one. What also makes a huge difference here is the introduction of Guy "Mr. Sardonicus" Rolfe as Toulon, a role he would essay in two more sequels. Rolfe is a great Toulon, a charismatic and even sympathetic character who loves his deadly puppets as only a papa creator could. Rolfe lent an air of integrity and distinction to the series. Part 3 is a great little B-horror addition to the series that was shot on the Universal back lot instead of Europe to surprisingly solid effect. A must-see.
