Community Promises All Puppet Episode

Just What You've Always Wanted


Community‘s fourth season ratings have not been the greatest. In fact, the Halloween episode grabbed the lowest ratings the show has ever had. And while I wouldn’t preface this statement with “in response,” this is not a situation in which I’d fault the folks who run Community these days for bringing out the big guns:

All. Puppet. Episode.

In case you haven’t been any where near the internet in a while, Community is no stranger to the mixed media approach, with episodes featuring stop-motion animation, 8-bit style video game imagery, and even a foosball tournament in anime style. Frankly, it’s shocking the all-puppet episode hasn’t come up before. The episode’s conceit was revealed during the Community panel at PaleyFest, a television festival held at the Paley Center for Media. From Deadline:

An all-puppet episode featuring extensive use of the performers in puppet form will air in April and include a cameo from Jason Alexander (though not as a puppet). As the panel closed, the cast mates brought out their puppet lookalikes to revel in the moment.

So what you’re telling me is that Jason Alexander isn’t a puppet? Man. I could have sworn.

Would you guys turn in for a puppet episode? Would you do it if they confirmed a puppet Dean?
