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!!!
It’s a new year! Yippee! I look at it as a blank sheet of paper waiting for a doodle, a song, or a skit to work into the puppet show. I have already started a list of goals to work towards and would love to share a few with you, our fabulous friends and fans!
New puppet characters! In the new year we will introduce two new member to our growing cast of silly puppets. Both have been “on the drawing board” for a some time and it’s due time that they joined the fun! First will be this guy, Unka Unka the Caveman!

Next will be our second Sasquatch character, who will be named Cousin Snavely. The voice is sounding a bit like actor Charles Nelson Reilly. He playedHoratio J. HooDoo on the 1970s kid’s TV show Lidsville. Here’s the opening theme on YouTube.
Watch out for Sasquatch!
Our third puppet project with be a much needed rebuild of on of our most loved characters, Coleman the Sasquatch. This little guy is over 35 years old! It’s quite amazing that he has held up as long as he has. The mouthplate inside the puppet is deteriorating with every show. We’ll be sure to share this process as his rebuild begins.
Of course that’s not all! We have a couple of fun new skits and songs in the works, which we think you will enjoy. Here’s a short video with a sneak peek of a few of the tune ideas:
Wump Mucket Puppets Coleman the Sasquatch and Eleanor
We are pulling out all the stops tonight! Coleman has called in his number one fan, Eleanor Burke, to make a video to help the Wump Mucket Puppets reach and BEAT their goal of 300 likes on the official Wump Mucket Puppets Facebook page. Not only will the 300th person to like our page have a tune recorded on video for them to show the whole wide world that they are pals with the wacky (yet wholesome) Wump Mucket Puppets, but we will throw in this incredible pack of Anastasi trading cards:
