Hilbert, the monster, is in charge of protecting
Mr. Pinkelton's secret hoard of carnival memorabilia.
Gregor Pinkelton has been working at carnivals since 1908,
and Hilbert was a gift from Mary Herr, a bearded woman he met during the Depression.
If Hilbert is not standing guard, Gregor is positive that someone will pilfer
his stash of collectibles.
