Puppet And Stuff Puppetry Forum

Over the last couple of weeks we have started participating on the Puppet's and Stuff forum. Cicero, Nice and I have found it to be a great community of puppeteers and puppet makers who are very welcoming to interested parties. You will find people there of all levels of puppeteering, from the professional to the beginner. There are quite a few people there who are interested in Christian puppetry. Check it out!

Latest Video Efforts

Here are the latest videos we have done that have been shown on our local TV station. We have one more "in the can" that will be shown at an as yet undisclosed date.

Buga Buga: Rock and Hole

This video introduces a new cast of characters, the Buga Buga tribe. Their language consists of the words "buga buga", and they illustrate biblical principles through their capers. If you have any doubt as to what they are illustrating in this video, check out the reference at the end.


This one is just a little comedy bit that aired before the Buga Buga clip. It is based on one of my favorite Smothers Brothers routines. Below is a translation:

Junior: Hey Max.
Max: Hey Junior
Junior: Is it my imagination, or do I smell chocolate.
Max: It's not your imagination, it is really chocolate. I fell into a bucket of chocolate this morning.
Junior: You fell into a bucket of chocolate?
Max: Yes, an enormous bucket, full of chocolate. It was terrible.
Junior: I can imagine. And what did you do?
Max: I yelled "FIRE!"
Junior: Hang on...you fell into a bucket of chocolate and yelled "fire"?
Max: That's right.
Junior: And why did you do that?
Max: Because nobody would have helped me if I had yelled "CHOCOLATE"!

Back to Posting

Ok, I keep meaning to post here, but life just keeps getting in the way. There has been a flurry of puppetry related activity here, however, and so we have a lot of content that could go here. Hopefully we will be able to be more consistent from here on out, and post more material for believers seeking to make a difference through puppetry.

Last weekend we administered our sixth puppetry school here in Brazil. It was a raging success. Cicero, our technical director, put together this little promotional video featuring photos and clips from last week's event. Enjoy.
