I mean like the ones that seem so expressive theyre almost lifelike!

I love Rattus Rattus from Horrible Histories, when he does the Gory games show with Dave Lamb theyre like a proper double act.

and Fozzie bear from the Muppets.

and Yoda.

and Sweep, his squeaky noises you just knew what he was saying!

and the ones you hated, like Orville. literally dead as a dodo!!!

Emu.

Spit the Dog.

AnyoneForTARDIS Sat 23-Aug-14 18:53:57

oh yes, Spit. is that a love or hate?

Sorry, didn't see the Love/Hate bit.

Love Spit. I don't think there's any puppets I hate tbh. They're all a bit magic, aren't they?

I had an Emu my Mum made. Nearly as terrifying as the original!

I love sweep, cuddles, Lord Charles and Zippy!

I hate George, Orville, miss Piggy, Punch & Judy

AnyoneForTARDIS Sat 23-Aug-14 19:17:45

hate Archie.

who was Cuddles?

I liked Nooky bear and Lord Charles.

Beertrix some were scary though! the witch in Paulus the woodgnome .

and Emu was scary to me!

and the giant muppets and the giant ones on Fraggle rock.

Beaker from The Muppets. I love him.
Quite like Bungle, Zippy & George too (from Rainbow for those too young to know what I'm talking about!).

Sweep, Elmo and The Wolves (bro and bro) from What's Up Doc were great

Hated Orville with a passion and its monkey friend angry

Muffin the Mule

Spotty Dog (from the woodentops)

I used to make puppets for theatre productions - I once made all the creatures from James and The Giant Peach - they were huge muppet style puppets. I'm a big puppet fan.

Whitecotton Sun 24-Aug-14 17:37:04

Oh spotty dog grin Do you remember Pogles Wood with the plant who drank bilberry wine!

Cuddles was a monkey ( orangutan) that was operated by the same person as Orville. He used to say " I hate that duck" grin

Zippy
Hartley the Hare from Pipkins
Itsy and Bitsy from Paperfun

<< does anyone remember the last two? Or is it just me who is old enough? >> blush

Cocolepew Sun 24-Aug-14 17:59:13

Love Lambchop, Beaker, Animal, Hartley Hare and Sweep.
Hated Emu.

I used to have Itsy and Bitsey puppets smile

elephanteraser Sun 24-Aug-14 18:17:49

bob not job!

AnyoneForTARDIS Sun 24-Aug-14 18:23:27

I always thought Hartley the hare looked like Larry Grayson!

and the puppets looked like theyd never been washed.

mrspremise Sun 24-Aug-14 18:25:55

Larry the Loafer. "Its a puppet!"

Whitecotton Sun 24-Aug-14 19:41:14

What was the pig called in Pipkins? There was Hartley the hare, Octavia the ostritch, topov the monkey but I can't remember what the pig was called, she spoke with a brummie accent.

DoctorLawn Sun 24-Aug-14 19:45:04

I used to love Cosmo and Dibs as a child.

Now it would be Swedish chef, Roland Rat (and Kevin!), Gordon the Gopher (and Larry the Loafer grin), Edd the Duck, The Count from Sesame Street.
