Puppet Kaos - where Kelvin Kao plays with puppets and tell random stories

School Pageant: Flower

Recently I’ve talked about the voiceover gig, Huell Howser, Spring Sing, 1000 tweets, and Star Trek. But somehow I haven’t talked about puppets that much. Actually I’ve been watching videos and reading about puppets too. (I came across an awesome podcast about puppet making.) Just haven’t written much lately.

Here’s something from Sesame Street that’s sort of a crappily (yep, that’s a word) executed school play, but it’s downright endearing (as always).

I realized what Prairie does in this video is what Kermit does all the time on Muppets: putting on a show while trying (okay, failing) to keep the crazy cast under control. Then again, that’s always fun to watch. Oh, and here’s a spoiler (that’s not quite a spoiler): Cookie Monster ends up eating what’s in front of him.

    Wow, I actually remember seeing this on TV when I was a kid. That’s so weird. I miss the Muppets.

    I think my principal feels like that sometimes, with us being her “cast”…

    @Melissa: Actually, they recycle their clips, so you can see the same clip in multiple episodes, new and old (and podcast too).

    @Michelle: But that simlply makes it that much more rewarding when things finally come together!

    I just noticed something: When the three glove hand puppets came out together at the end, each of them was puppeteered by one person only, so you only see the left hands move, without any right hand action!
