Video Collection: Puppets

This week, one of TKSST's most shared videos was of a singing frog playing the banjo. That frog has provided comfort and magic for generations thanks to the great Jim Henson. In the 1969 video above, Henson shares how to make puppets with stuff from around the house. (I also love this recent tweet about it.) The selections below feature other incredible puppeteers, from those who develop characters with their hands to those who team up to create larger-than-life performances.
