When I was invited to build the puppets for this innovative new show, I was delighted and ready for anything. You & Me has a retro design style that reminded me of puppets I grew up with and loved as a kid. I knew I would be working on something very special. The designer/creator and host had a full vision of the show and together we created a colorful hybrid of puppets and animation.
It was a dream job. From the technical challenges of building the body costumed Betty, to talking bananas, speedy bunny slippers, a Frowner, a ninja squirrel, a competitive cat and hipster duck Chuck, I got to build every puppet that appears on screen. And there were a lot of them.
