Arty Smartypants

Arty Smartypants is the Bunraku Puppet Jester, who is also known as ‘‘The Great Smartini’’, who wears smarty pants. Although he has never visited the library, he occasionally would make appearances in the series.


Like Martha Reader, Arty has blue cap ‘n’ bells–like hair. He wears a yellow necktie with green diamonds, has two eyes (one swirly pattern, other regular), two ears, one big ear and a small ear, two arms made of popsicle sticks, two brown shoes, and checkered trousers he calls ‘‘Smarty Pants’’.
