Robbie

Mouth Puppet

Robbie is one of the "Graveyard Gil Players" and he was the fill in for the one and only Robert C. Fullerton in the music video for "Afternoon Reflection".
"Afternoon Refection" is a sweet little song that we used in "Bernice, Too".
And check out Robert Fullerton's music HERE.
Pick up "Bernice, Too" on DVD HERE!



And a quick behind the scenes picture!

My Brothers Army.


My brother Michael was a huge G.I. Joe fan.  
The action figures in the 1980's, the comics, the cartoon.  All of it.
As he hit adulthood Hasbro started releasing a line of figures call "Hall of Fame" where they took the most popular characters and did them in the original 12 inch style figure of the 1960's and 1970's.  These started about a year before he died, and he immediately wanted to collect them.
So he did!
What is in this picture were all the figures he got as they came out, and a couple I eneded up buying after he passed to keep his collection going.  He love these things.
More came out, but I stopped buying them.  Maybe someday I'll track the others down.
For years they have been in a box in storage.  It was time to get them out.  I always wanted to display them since he loved them so much.  Now, they are here protecting my office.
Yo Joe!

Josh

Mouth Puppet
Portrait for the upcoming series "The G-Spot"

Now that "Bernice, Too" has been released and I've done some relaxing I'm going to get back to posting puppets on Saturdays again!
This is "Josh" from a series Elmwood is a part of called "The G-Spot".
Although we're not the production company behind this series we are very involved. We're providing the puppets and a puppeteers and a ton of behind the scenes help.  This puppet is of the main character, who is the manager of "The G-Spot" - which is not as naughty as it sounds!  The G-Spot is a retro video game and collectables store.  And the series follows him on his day-to-day adventures in the store.
More to come! 
In the meantime check out the man the puppet is based on, Josh A. - HERE!

What time is it?

I was cleaning my closet a few months back and found these watches...  
And memories came quick.


Early 1993 "The Muppet Movie" and "The Great Muppet Caper" were re-released on VHS after being out of print for a little bit.  And they came with these watches.  My brother got them both for me for my 18th birthday.  Haha

18 and getting Muppet videos.  Yup.  I turned 47 in February and I'd still want this gift.  


I wore these too.  From the looks of it I wore the "Caper" one more.  And the batteries are in the boxes.  Maybe I'll order batteries and see if they still work!

This puppet is based on my late cat, also named Blue!  She won't be popping up anytime soon in "Animal Behavior"...  But she will be eventually!
Here's a picture of her...  And with Ripper!
