Sam is the big spender who covets a bicycle he cannot afford. Pam wants a soccer ball, but cannot bear to part with her ample savings.

Sam and Pam are hand puppets animated by Jill York, 25, a bookkeeper at Bank of Benton in Kentucky. They will perform at a Benton elementary school today as part of National Teach Children to Save Day, organized by the American Bankers Association's Education Foundation.
