    A line up like that should write itself :) Have a scenario that really brings out the personalities of the puppets. I can imagine the gang trying to play a game, it could be easy as yahtzee or as complex as dungeons and dragons. the props involved are as simple as a card table, dice, pencils and paper. i'd have the bird be the organizer of the game and get flustered when the others cant get with the program. old guy can tell stories of his glory days but trail off before really making a point, monkey is trying to cheat whenever possible, lion doesnt understand the rules, and afro dude can be the balance to play off the craziness of the others.

    The old guy and the afro dude are talking to one another, their voices are a off and unconvincing and the their mannerisms are a little unrefined. after a while we get the idea that they are being puppeteered by the monkey and the lion. we hear "CUT!" and an actual person stands up and is conversing with an off camera director (angry bird)... after the bird puppeet is revealed, you'll have all the puppets get up and argue about their direction or motivation in that scene or their lack of actual speaking lines.
