Transylvania-TV Halloween Special

You have until November 1st to watch the following Halloween special. Don’t let the puppets fool you: It’s not for kids. A Vampire gets it on with a Mummy (spoiler alert) and there’s something about pickles and a Pumpkin prince but it’s fun otherwise.    

Freddy Takes D.C.

…Follies, that is. For those unfamiliar with the program, D.C. Follies was one of two (the other being Sid & Marty Krofft’s Red Eye Express) shows made in the 80’s by the creators of H.R. Pufnstuf that teamed human actors with puppet versions of famous politicians and celebrities. D.C. Follies was arguably the most successful …

You’re no better than Puppetose Street

Longtime readers of the site know it’s no secret that that we love puppets. Especially the inventive use of a low budget and twisted humor from the warped world of Puppetose. Given the Halloween season, I thought it would be good to share one of my favorite episodes of PuppeTose Street, wherein the gang visits …

Ghost Hunting with the Muppets

It’s no secret that we here at Gravedigger’s Local 16 love puppets, especially the Muppets. So you can imagine how delighted I was to find this ghost-hunting demonstration by Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker, straight from the official themuppetlabs Youtube channel: I was originally going to save this for the next installment of my “horror …

An Evening With PuppeTose

An Evening With PuppeTose ‘An Evening With PuppeTose’ is the darkest of the PuppeTose Theatre productions we’ve reviewed so far; it’s also perhaps the most intelligent of the four. What makes it so astounding is that it is the chronologically second, following 1999’s ‘Valley of the Robots,’ with ‘Random Stories Grab-Bag’ and ‘PuppeTose Street’ following …

PuppeTose Theater Presents: Random Stories Grab-Bag

PuppeTose Theater Presents: Random Stories Grab-Bag There’s a neat scene in ‘Premonition,’ the first of three stories in PuppeTose Theater’s Random Stories Grab-Bag. A dragon stalks the character Helgi, a soothsayer within a castle and despite there being no real frame of reference other than both are the trademark PuppeTose puppets.  Through choices in editing, …

Brother, can you spare a dime?

Maybe you saw this mentioned on an Attack of the Show segment recently but there’s a site called Kickstarter, where creative sorts can set up an account to help find funding for their projects. Transylvania TV, something I mentioned a while ago, has something set up for their Halloween Special. If you like their stuff, …

Valley of the Robots

The Valley of the Robots Written and Directed by Ross Wilsey If granted the power of omniscience, I doubt anyone would notice a difference in my attitude. Perhaps I would be a little bit meaner, a little less joyous at knowing at all times the common atrocities occurring within the universe, about how effortlessly a …

2010 (corpses to bury)

(and only two cups of coffee left.) Goodness Ghoulies, where has my head been? Weird Jon and the Atomic Mystery Monster come back and I disappear. Dig, dig, dig. 2009 ended with the finale of Season 2 of Transylvania TV and the X-mas special of Spook House Dave. Check them out. If you scrounge up …

Transylvania TV: ON THE AIR

One of the related YouTube videos to Spook House Dave’s channel led to ‘Transylvania TV’ (or TVTV), a puppet show from Minneapolis. More adult themed in nature (language, content, nothing too graphic) it’s not for kids despite being very similar to your Sesame Street/Muppet fare. They have a DVD of their first season out (as …

Spook House Dave

Puppets. Funny puppets. Or, so I think. Some of the jokes are corny but I like Umberto. Kind of has that ‘Edwardo’ from ‘Foster’s Home’ vibe going on. They’re doing a full 31 Days of these short clips over at ‘Spook House Dave‘ so head over and check them out.
