Bucket Gulch or BUST!

Bucket Gulch or BUST!

Bucket Gulch or BUST!  Wump Mucket Puppets western-themed puppet show Tales from Bucket Gulch is ready to hit the road, with the cast members very excited to be performing a new show for our fans this summer.  We are thrilled to be featuring a new puppet star too, Sarsaparilla the Cow!  The show opens with a lively tune and a tall tale about biscuits told by Miss Jacqui the Jackalope.  Next Unka Unka and Kitty will be digging for gold.  What will he find?  This is followed by the story of The Cow Who Wouldn’t MOO, starring Coleman, Reg, and Sarsaparilla.  There’s even a funky dance break for everyone to dance too!

Sassy, as we like to call her, recorded an interview with fellow cast member Coleman the Sasquatch at Cincinnati’s NPR radio station 97.1 WVXU last week.  Be sure to listen to it on the “Around Cincinnati” program, Sunday June 3rd at 7 PM.  We think that you will get a kick out of this radio interview, it was LOTS of FUN to record with host Jim Stump.  Listen to the program online at: WVXU.org

Our puppets will be on TV too!  Be sure to watch Coleman, Sassy, and their puppeteer Terrence Burke, as studio guests on Good Morning Cincinnati at Local 12 WKRC TV.  We’ll be LIVE on Tuesday June 5th at 9:40 AM.  Watch the fun as we chat and MOO about our performances at local libraries in June.  These appearances are always exciting, with Sassy looking forward to be making her Cincinnati live television debut.  Don’t miss it!  You can watch online at: Local12.com/watch

Be sure to come and see Wump Mucket Puppets this summer.  We have many FREE shows to attend throughout Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, even New England!  Tales from Bucket Gulch is a great family show, perfect for children ages 3-10 and the young at heart too!  Our complete tour schedule can be found right here.

Be sure to get one of our new coloring pages drawn by artist Lara Rumizen.  These are only available at the puppet shows.  When you have colored it in, please share your art with us on the official Wump Mucket Puppets Facebook page.

See ya at the puppet show buckaroos!  Bucket Gulch or BUST!

Here’s Sarsaparilla the Cow

Here’s Sarsaparilla the Cow

Please say hello to Wump Mucket Puppets newest puppet star Sarsaparilla the Cow, we call her Sassy too.  She will be performing in our brand new show “Tales from Bucket Gulch” this summer.

This is a publicity photo of Sassy and Coleman the Sasquatch, and was taken by Michelle Jellison.  The puppet was build over a couple weeks in March 2018 by Terrence Burke.

Sassy was created with art supplies and fabric that were on hand at the Wump Mucket Puppets studio.  When designing the puppet, it was decided that there are many black and white cow puppets out there, yet not very many bright green and pink stripped cows.  So far the reactions from our pals has been very favorable.

She will be a featured puppet star in the story “The Cow Who Would Not MOO”, which is included in our western-themed “Bucket Gulch” show.  Come see Sassy and her co-stars this summer, and find out why she would not moo.

Meet and greet fun

Here are a few photos from a recent show while we meet our fans.

Our audience means so much to us, and we enjoy meeting with you very much, hearing your thoughts about the show, or give one of the stars a scratch on the back.

Find out if we are performing near you by visiting the Wump Mucket Puppets schedule page.

Sasquatch SLAM dunk!

Here’s a fun photo of Coleman the Sasquatch taken before our performance at The Goddard School in Cincinnati, Ohio this morning.

While Coleman may be a bit short to make a “Squatch dunk”, I will share that I did play on a church league basketball team when I was in high school many decades ago.  Our team wasn’t the best in town, yet we all had fun playing together.  I recall my best game, we were getting stomped on.  Everything I threw towards the hoop went in.  I had a “ball”.  That’s what it’s all about!

Wump Mucket Puppets can bring LOTS of fun to your school, library. or special event.  Please see our contact page to get in touch with us.

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!

Wump Mucket Puppets - Coleman the Sasquatch and Tiernan Burke

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!!!
