That guy is awesome!
You know you are a magician when you have boxes full of lecture notes you have never read, but still are excited about going out and buying more.

A friend of mine sent me this.
That guy is great.
I have shown it to a couple of people. I assume this guy is somewhere in Europe.

That could be great for ventriloquists too.

Very clever--something that could have been goofy is, when done so well, terrific entertainment. Great!

The popular guesses are either Barcelona or New Orleans.

That is the Ramblas, Barcelona. That guy is certainly a lot better than when I first saw him, which was about 8 years ago.

Great bit! The last guy I saw with a puppet was in Colorado and he would have a lady lay on the ground and then dand on her belly. At the end he would have to grab the puppet off of her because it would start humping her leg.

Very funny... I miss that guy.

To be honest, that's his. I wouldn't touch it. Even though he's in Barcelona and it's doubtful anyone is going to realize you're stealing someone else's material, it should be enough that YOU know!

If I were to be inspired by this, I would get a different marronette figure and find a different song.

I I were to choose to "steal" something from the routine, it would be the crying at the hat! That's just too perfect. (My daughter said if she saw the puppet doing that, she'd have dropped in some change just for that!

Love the tipping "The Hat" section. Honestly, the best marionette puppeting I have ever seen done. And my hometown has a professional puppet theater.

If you don't mind, can you PM me the Googled site you are refering to? I build marionettes, and would like to look at what you found.

I am partially done with a disjointed skeleton (his head, arms and legs come off and rejoin the torso during the act). My skeleton's skull it molded paper mache... I began by sculpting the skull from clay, and cast a negative in plaster. Then the actual marionette head was made by layering glue-soaked paper strips into this mold. The body, torso and limbs are made from Crayola Model Magic Compound formed around wire armatures.

You can find some of the old Pelham 'disjointed Skeletons' around...sometimes on eBay. I used one on the street in the mid 60's and they are great litle puppets.
Do a Google for Pelham Puppets. Head rises off body and arms and legs come off body as well.

That vid though was really choice performing. With that little act you wouldn't need more than that litle bone head to make your take. Thanks for the link!

Michael...let's collaborate! I'll sculpt you some heads and hands and stuff. Smile

The Pelham is kinda small...here's a nice one:

That is some outstanding puppetry!

Now that Doug is talking about making something, all I can think of is a singin', dancin' Chupacabra doing tejano, or, for a cheap shot, "Tequila:"
