There may be some worthwhile stuff to read about on the Czech puppet
tradition, which derives some of its main characters from mystery plays
and such. One of the three magi, for instance, is portrayed as a
simpleton.  This simpleton goes on to appear in puppet shows for
generations to come, even being reincarnated-one could say-as Good
Soldier Schweik.

You might try: Speaight, George. The History of the English Puppet
Theatre. 2nd ed.  Carbondale: Southern Illinois UP, 1990.. I've found it
useful in my study of pantomime.
