The baby in striped pajamas held captive by the Goblin King is now an adult doing some awesome puppet stuff! Toby Froud takes us into the Froudian world his family has created, his current adventures at LAIKA working on Paranorman & Box Trolls, and his award winning puppet short "Lessons Learned."

 

Check out all his awesome projects - Stripey Pajama Productions

30+ years in creature design, building, performing. Toss in over a decade of writing & directing The Muppets. Add in some epic facial hair and kick-ass hats and you've got your very own Kirk Thatcher! We were beyond honored and thrilled to chat with the Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge judge! A truly great, awesome and fun guy with copious amounts of knowledge and great stories!  Enjoy!

We return to the world of creepy puppets with two of our favorite past guests.

Lara Maclean shares with us the tale of the Golden Ann, the all too real scene from Sesame Street which left Lars with some weird childhood dreams. Mark Gale chimes in with another scene featuring The Count doing a little home invading that left him scarred as a child.

 

Watch the videos here to experience it for yourself!
