    The Elmwood Puppets
    (But I'm biased :))

    After that my Top 3, to keep is simple - Muppet style puppets only... And these are the current faves...

    Greg the Bunny Crew; they ALWAYS make me laugh and the puppets are great

    Wonder Showzen - I'm gonna get crucified here for that, since the puppets are ugly, and the puppetry is aweful, and the show is crude... But I couldn't take my eyes off it!

    and I really liked the Dot-Boom stuff online

    OMG, I remember them. Mr. Moose amazed me because he was just a neck and head, never showed a hoof or anything else......

    I can't believe I forgot about MST3K. a Crow replica was the first puppet I ever built.

    Agreed. And let me add, Big and Small, as well as, Apollo's Pad. I also recently found out they had a hand in Whoopi's Littleburg and CBC's The Mighty Jungle.

    Ah... that's one of the Kroffts' lesser-known shows, but it was a hoot! Like Cheers meets Saturday Night Live meets puppetry!
