    Your Thoughts: Muppets on WWE Raw SuperShow October 31

    It is always nice to see the Muppets out and about. But Disney needs to be extremely thoughtful about how they are used. I just personally didn't find validity to the interactions between the wrestlers and the Muppets. Even in the original Muppet Movie, all of the cameo guests were still "in the...

    Your Thoughts: Muppets on WWE Raw SuperShow October 31

    That's exactly what they couldn't do, beaker. The muppets couldn't do anything even remotely like what they'd usually do because it would give lie to the wrestlers getting beat up by puppets. Which is why the muppets had to take the fall, to use a wrestling phrase. I watched the show and was...

    Your Thoughts: Muppets on WWE Raw SuperShow October 31

    Personal opinion: This was AWFUL. And not because of the performances by the Muppets. It was awful because in order to make it happen, the Muppets got screwed. Basically it came down to wrestlers picking on Muppets. That's disrespectful of the property. It was like watching the high-school...

    News on TVTV

    More news: We leave tonight for Pennsylvania where we'll be attending the National Haunter's Convention (for people who 'do" Halloween and haunted houses). They invited me out to talk about puppetry (as it relates to halloween and haunted houses) and gave us a large booth! I also have...

    News on TVTV

    Hey guys, Just a quickie update (for those of you who are prone to care! LOL!) on Transylvania Television: We are currently putting all our efforts to assembling a package of six to ten half hour shows using some of our previous material and some all-new comedy pieces. Why? Well, we got...

    In case you missed it, we've decided to keep the halloween special up indefinitely. So you can still reach it at the URL http://blip.tv/file/4314185 -Gordon

    FS: Muppet Cannon

    We'd probably ship it, but you'd pay for crating and shipping costs. Somewhere in the area of $100 for crating. Shipping would have to be determined by how much it all weighs and where its going. More description: The prop is built from chip board and cardboard sono-tube. It was...

    One of the most important things to keep in mind, especially if you're just starting, is that its okay to just build a test puppet first. I always do. Its just an exercise in getting to know the pattern and how to put it together. When a seamstress is doing a new, unfamiliar pattern she'll...

    Favorite Non-Henson Puppets and Puppeteers

    Obviously I'm not doing my job properly. Nobody's mentioned the retro-monster comedy that's not for kids. Hmmmm. I'm not making an impact on puppet fans. That's a serious faux pas on my part in marketing. -Gordon

    Furry Puppet custom built puppet for sale

    Wow. I have a script that could use her for TVTV. Ugh. No promises, but I'll look into what might be offered. How big is she? That'd be a concern. Most of my puppets tend towards the smaller side. Even LeShoc. -Gordon

    Where in the world is Antron Fleece?

    Well, D'Snowth, I guess I can only say that if you want something specific, and nothing else will do, you're going to encounter the need to pony up for whatever it is you're trying to get. It sucks that faux furs aren't as in-vogue as they used to be and are harder to get at typical fabric...

    Another CPA workshop?

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows if there was any talk, rumor, scuttlebutt, dirt, gossip, or hearsay about Steve Whitmire (or other Muppet performers) doing any other workshops at the Center For Puppetry Arts? It'd be superb to have an opportunity to do something a little more complex...

    Where in the world is Antron Fleece?

    Mendels has a pretty darn good selection of furs. My wife found some fur for me to re-build Furry Ackermonster with that's nearly perfect. And he's built from leftover fur from Seasme Street Live... which is all custom stuff. -G
