    Great it looks like the series is going really well, even doing a spinoff (which also looks like a lot of fun). Also I was looking on your Youtube channel and I really like the clip of Octopus Garden back from The Sassafrass Junction Puppet Theatre, its such a fun vibrant performance . Anyway Keep up the great work its brilliant :)

    Nice looks like a lot fun, really like the voice you gave to the rooster it really fits its character and I like how he refers to himself as being Professional wake- upper, the theatre looks like it was a lot of fun to work at :fanatic:

    Thanks again!! Yeah... I met an old man in Kentucky a few years back who had that exact voice...it was so odd that i started to immitate him... and soon it became the voice of good ol Rusty the rooster... hahaha...

    The theater was an absolute blast! Here is our old blog with tons of pics... We actually switched venues to a much bigger place in 2012...

    Lol... they are actually a little easter egg in the show for the future... in our little "biographies" we created for the characters... we had to create these little favorite tv shows the kids love...we also created a music group called "Frankie Phoenix and the Firebirds" (more on that later)

    Anyways... We created this show called "The Commodore Shaboo adventure hour" which is a serialized half hour show about this villain who takes over the universe one planet at a time... our "bratty"due Stix and Stones LOVE his show... but Dr T and the other kids do not approve... because he's a bad influence and a terrible role model... Anyways...over the course of the 6 episodes this season the boys will learn a valuable lesson about GOOD vs BAD...

    but... to answer your question... We need a show that the other boys Dex and Kelvin like... for a juxtaposition... so we came up with this silly puppet show called the SUPER SOX.... but in the season u will only see it briefly...playing in the background.... We hope to do a lot more with it in the future...

    ps- The idea for using a heroic villain to teach a lesson about good and bad came from an old Brady Bunch episode where Bobby idolizes Jesse James and thinks hes the greatest... until he has a dream....and Jesse James robs a train he and his family are traveling on... and Bobby learns a valuable lesson.... Many times in our society...i see kids choosing to look up to role models who on the surface are entertaining... but who really stand for all the wrong things... So the story arc of this season will have a little lesson in the subtext...
