51. Monkey Boys

ROAD TRIP!

Dan & Nate drove out to the Philadelphia, PA  area to visit the awesome shop of the even more awesome Monkey Boys! Marc Petrosino & Michael Latini were kind enough to take time out of their crazy busy schedule of designing and building puppets, creatures, props, practical effects and more, to sit down with D & N and give them a tour of their shop!

They talk about how the company was formed, some of their big projects, a very well known and naughty plant, Jedis and dumplings! Mmmmmm....dumplings.

The Boys get a chance to sit down and talk to the wonderfully talented Leslie Carrara-Rudolph (Abby Cadabby - Sesame Street)! We talked for a record 4 hours and had to dice up the great conversation into a few parts! So enjoy part number 1 where Abby says hello to Dan's daughter, and we talk about everything but puppets... but don't worry... we get there!
