Yus! I still have my 1970s vintage Sweep hand-puppet! and it still squeeks!
My brother had a silent Sooty hand puppet and I had the squeaking Sweep. Some alliteration there, kids. anyway, I think our Sooty & Sweep would pretty much just hand wrestle each other. This might be my imagination, but I think Sooty would gang up with my bother's Emu doll and attack Sweep! Nah, probably not.
