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

Okay You Primitive Screwheads

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.
