Woman Uses GoDaddy Super Bowl Commercial To Quit Her Engineering Job And Do Puppetry Full Time

Full disclosure: I didn’t watch the Super Bowl. That being said, I am doing a bit of catching up on the commercials to spin out of it. You might be familiar with web hosting company GoDaddy’s usual approach to marketing. Turns out, they decided to go in a different direction this year. And it’s surprisingly positive.

The Wolverine Puppet Musical You’ve Always Wanted [VIDEO]

Gotta be honest, I wasn’t one hundred percent sold on puppet Wolverine, brought to you by the same guys who explained Joseph Campbell‘s monomyth through puppets, for the first minute or so of this video. But then he started singing a version of “The Music of the Night” from The Phantom of the Opera about all the different teams he’s fought on. That’s when it got me.

Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth Theory… As Explained by Puppets [VIDEO]

Are you familiar with Joseph Cambell‘s monomyth theory, a.k.a. “The Hero’s Journey,” as described in his landmark mythology text The Hero’s with a Thousand Faces? The basic idea is that the same character types and plot beats repeat themselves in story after story. It could be Star Wars or Happy Gilmore: The hero’s journey is there. If you’re still a little shaky, or if you need a refresher course… or, heck, if you just like puppets and/or mythology, Fafa the Groundhog and Mario of Glove and Boots are here to explain it to you by acting out scenes from Harry Potter, The Hobbit, The Wizard of Oz, and more.

Knit Sarlacc Hand Puppet is Fuzzy and Somehow Still Terrifying

This is exactly what any puppet-loving Star Wars fan needs– a knit monster that will digest you slowly over thousands of years. We all know that the only thing the Sarlacc really wanted was to give Luke a big fuzzy hug! Right? …Right?

This creepy little monster was made by Deviantart user Pandacatification.

Nine Gives Eleven a Rose In the Latest Episode of Doctor Puppet [VIDEO]

The new episode of Alisa Stern‘s Doctor Puppet is both dramatic and disgustingly (in a good way) cute. Keep your eye out for references; I spotted Seven’s hat and umbrella in addition to a Weeping Angel-esque garden statue. And, of course, the roses. Drop us a comment if you spot any more.

The Puppet Version of Manos the Hands of Fate Just Hit its Kickstarter Goal

Manos: The Hands of Felt started when puppeteer Rachel Jackson made a bad pun and then decided that it had legs. Like, lots of puppety, Muppet spoofing, parodic retelling of the making of Manos: The Hands of Fate and its revival as a Mystery Science Theater 3000 mainstay legs. So she turned it into a live show, and now a DVD release of that live show has just hit its funding goal on Kickstarter. There are still five days to go in the pledge drive, though, and I feel it is my duty to remind any Torgo fans out there that they can pick up a digital download of the movie for only $5.

Here’s a Teaser for Next Week’s Community, Where the Study Group Turns Into Puppets [VIDEO]

Community‘s gone downhill somewhat in season four, but if there’s one phrase that can get me excited about a show again it’s “puppet episode.” Watch the study group hum along to the smooth sounds of Daybreak in this teaser for next week’s “Intro to Felt Surrogacy.”

(Apologies on behalf of Hulu if you’re geoblocked; their vids are U.S. only, and this one’s not on YouTube. Nothing we can do about it.)

See How the Guy With the Coolest Job Ever Created Jurassic Park‘s Spitting Dinosaur [VIDEO]

I will never get tired of watching behind-the-scenes dinosaur footage from Jurassic Park. Never. There’s a reason the special effects of that movie have aged so well, and that reason is puppets. The Stan Winston School, which made the dinos we all know and love so very much, previously released a video about the making of the Velociraptor. And now the spitting dinosaur (or Dilophosaurus, if we’ve being technical) that kills poor Nedry gets its turn in the spotlight.

Favorite part: “This is one of the coolest tongues I’ve ever done.”
