WHAT IS THIS PUPPETRY?!
I've been watching a lot of Henson stuff lately, if it's not apparent. My sister actually made a pretty impressive replica Cookie Monster which we puppeteer'd at a New Years party (he's a "sack" puppet so he requires two operators). The house had a mini-bar which made for an excellent stage, and I poured a shot for some guy. Maybe I can upload some of that poppycockery later on.
But in the meantime, you should check this out:
It's a pre-Sesame Street, proto-Cookie Monster which was used in an IBM training video, and in a sketch on the Ed Sullivan Show. Pretty funny stuff. And he has TEETH.
And there's explosions. So there's that.
