    It is a typical hand puppet..........there are two finger tubes on the top jaw and one on the bottom jaw.............he opens his mouth not much different than any other puppet.

    this one

    That's Cyril, the Monster of Ceremonies, and his "handler"
    doctort13.

    Cyril was the host/MC for the very first puppet slam in Cincinnati, and helped raise over $300 for the Cincinnati Area Puppetry Guild.

    He's a simple glove puppet made of fleece. The eyes are painted ping-pong balls, and the mouth plate is "fun foam" covered with black felt.

    I designed him, and did the patterns and simple sewing. My wife Lara helped make him look cooler (purple fins & eyelids) and she did the trickier sewing.

    His voice is similar to Bullwinkle with some Frank Zappa thrown in.

    The puppet boy looks cool. Is he made of foam? What sort of performances do you use him in?
