    Hi guys.
    In the UK puppetry and puppets aren't the most popular thing and there hasn't been a comedy involving puppets I'm a long long time.

    So I've been thinking up this idea for a show about a group of hotel employees that are trying to keep it together.

    Characters include:
    ●Reggie the Dog: The Assistant Manager whos holding down the fort. Who has some sort of thing going on with Lucy the waitress.
    ●Lucy the Waitress: Has a thing with the dog
    ●Blu the Monkey: the sarcastic American barman.
    ●Otis: Barman and best friend to Reggie and Blu the Monkey. Has as many Brain cells as people watching an Adam Sandler film
    ●Mitchell- Receptionist. Wannabe DJ
    ●Simone- The Homosexual suck up.
    ●Richard the manager-the laziest manager alive hasn't a clue how to work a television let alone run a business.
    ●Sebastian- the chef of the hotel a very old fashioned English gentleman who doesn't like anyonein his kitchen.
    Victor and Kevin- Two of the residents of the hotel.

    These are just some characters I have thought of so far.
    And I know it will probably never happen but I'm gonna work hard and I am going to do everything I can to get this on the air

    Pretty cool and ambitious. Got any character designs? When I was younger I used to have a notebook for character designs I would draw during recess and stuff.

    That's the beautiful thing; if you have an idea you can just put it out there yourself, without having a network involved or something. Just imagine if Jim was still around with YouTube and stuff. Frank Oz: "He'd be ahead of you all"

    My dream is to get it on to prime time TV

    And Sadly I don't have any character designs drawn out as I can't draw.

    Well, let me tell you something - and don't take this as me crushing your dream because you should never stop believing in your dreams (that's what the Muppets has told us) ;) - but nevertheless-

    I would love my group of puppet characters to be in a prime-time series. Heck, I'd love it if my puppets were on public access television. But right now that really isn't an option for me (at all) because I'm just a teenager.

    The great thing about YouTube is that you can basically create anything you want. You can even make a "prime-time series" and post it on YT. So basically the point of this post is to tell you to start small. THEN once you gain a following you can work your way up, and hey, who knows, you could very well have a prime-time series one day.

    But in any case, I'm really looking forward to what you are doing with this, and hope you can make this a reality. :)

    Youtube has been a option but I'm afraid I may get bullied again after what happened in my first year at high school.

    This is the video I did in 2014. (Not my channel)

    Doggo puppet.

    I think the concepts sound cool. Follow your heart's dreams and **** what people think, right?

    Yeah youtube is starting to again become more of an option to show my skills as I no longer care what people think about it

    Starting on a small scale seems like a way to go. It would be great to see it on prime time, but you might need a bigger staff than just yourself, and a bigger budget than just the change in your pocket.

    It won't just be me puppeteering. I have a whole list of puppeteers I want to have on my show. And I have a few people who I want in my human cast too

    That's cool. Do you have any friends who like puppets/ Muppets that you could do it with?
