Native Shoes and the Fraggles Ad Campaign

    Saw this link on Tumblr. Aside from my sadness at seeing the phrase "Travelling Mitt" (how hard can it be to avoid that error!), I am excited to see the Fraggles out somewhere in the press. The biggest question for me is regarding the picture of Uncle Matt.

    I think it's a new picture. Does this mean the Henson company built a new Uncle Matt puppet? It looks like it and I hope so. If this is a new Uncle Matt puppet, then I'll feel safe (or foolish enough) to stoke up some viral video speculation.

    What do you guys think?

    They did build a new one a few years ago I think. It was used by Dave this year at the Henson Amphibian Ulmni event in NYC.

    I didn't know that; I thought there was only the Red puppet still in circulation. If there has been an Uncle Matt puppet in existence for a few years, it's a shame they haven't done anything with it lately.

    Best new Fraggly images in decades.

    And uh...why is it JHC can't make new shorts or youtube viral videos with Fraggles?

    Maybe something will come out of this ad campaign, like a commercial. If you've got the puppets, and I'm pretty sure Karen Prell would at least be willing to appear in anything, you might as well do it.

    Hahaha that's fine. I sort of figured out that's what you meant after I posted! New poser puppets are a lot cooler anyway.

    Red wearing shoes is... weird. It's like she's going all Silly Creature on us. However, that pic of Matt skateboarding is three scoops of awesome with whipped cream and a little radish on top. I'd buy that if it was a poster. Or poser.

    They fixed "Travelling Mitt" to "Travelling Matt" in the original article. A win for copyeditors everywhere.

    Ah, Traveling Mitt... The Fraggle that was on a board for an investment bank that lobbied to make sure he only pays a thin slit of his taxes, and destroyed Massachusetts.

    Wow! This is so cool to see Red again, still looking like good ole Red. Red in shoes though? I guess after 20+ years, maybe some Fraggles are getting more comfortable with the idea of wearing silly creature footwear when venturing outside of Fraggle Rock at times. heh

    I argee, Tom Fraggle! As Mokey would say, "Red looks so funny wearing those shoes from a silly creature. (chuckles)! Well, back to my painting or writing I think."
