There have been a lot of great puppets since the dawn of television, like Chuck McCann/Paul Ashley's MR.McNASTY, HOWDY DOODY (lineage undetermined), and Captain Kevin's SCHWINEHUNTZ the PIG. However certain puppets have a MOJO that's indescribable. Their image and personality burrows deep into the recesses of our collective recall, and they live there to either haunt our dreams or dance in our reverie. So, in keeping with our Sandy Becker binge, today's totem is GEEBA GEEBA.
More to come!

  2. Great shot of Geeba(squared). One of my all time favorite puppet characters (on this particular planet).
    I'm intrigued by the mention of SCHWINEHUNTZ the PIG...there's something familiar about that name...are there any photos of that one?
