Lights! Camera! Puppets!
Cyril the Sea Serpent with Terrence Burke.
Early tomorrow morning a new chapter in my adventures in puppetry begins.
The entire cast of Wump Mucket Puppets have been hired by the City of Cincinnati’s Department of Public Services to be the “spokes puppets” for the city’s new trash collection rules.
There are a total of five PSAs (public service announcements) being shot over two days in six locations around our great city. Our co-stars include members of the Department of Public Services, Cincinnati broadcasting veteran Clyde Gray (former WCPO-TV anchor/CGA Public Relations Strategies), and Mayor John Cranely!
When the production is completed, the PSAs will be provided to broadcast television stations, websites, and social media to help inform the public of the changes in trash and recycling collection in Cincinnati.
We are thrilled to be a part of this production, and hope to be able to share a few photos from the shoot on our official Wump Mucket Puppets Facebook page.
One final thought, I seem to recall a few other puppeteers who’s careers got a big boost by appearing in commercials back in the 1950s and 1960s. Can anyone remember who they were?
Now I can honestly say, “I love trash!”
Wump Mucket Puppets FUNday Monday #10 3-10-14

Here’s this week’s video, I am rather proud of it:
Thanks for watching everyone. If you have a silly little joke to share with Coleman and his special guests, please leave it in the comments below.

No snowstorm can stop Coleman the Sasquatch and his pal Eleanor from trying to tell a silly joke…

FUNday Monday # 8 2-24-14
My goodness! Wump Mucket Puppets’ FUNday Monday is now two months old! Thanks to all our pals for watching Coleman and his super special guests every Monday. Who’s that guy wearing the silly orange hat with Coleman in today’s video?
We are very happy to share some silliness with you, so won’t you share a joke, riddle, or silly poem with Coleman? Send it in so we can continue our quest to make every Monday in 2014 a FUNday!
Perhaps we should ask for jokes or riddles of a particular theme or idea? Sound good? GREAT! Let’s see who’s wearing their thinking cap (or reading this silliness) by asking our pals to send us a riddle or joke about one of Coleman’s favorite things… SNACKS! Please remember to keep your silly joke submission family friendly, we have many young pals.
Thanks for watching everyone. We’ll see you in March, Puppets ROCK!

FUNday Monday # 7 -with less snow
What a Winter it has been in Cincinnati! Cold! Snow! Ice! Good thing we make these little videos on sunny days when the weather is nicer. This week we are back at the Mt. Airy Forest playground. It’s an odd name since there are NO mountains in Cincinnati!
Here’s this week’s silly joke:
Thanks to Tiernan for being this week’s super special guest. Did you catch a peek of Eleanor sneaking up on the guys at the end? You must have eagle eyes. Please share a silly joke with us, we love them! Puppets ROCK!!!
