From the Archives! Building Puppets for Aqua Teen Hunger Force!

While digging through some old photo files, I came across these and thought I'd post them. I got hired by the good folks at Cartoon Network to construct two puppets for Aqua Teen Hunger Force. The two characters, Zuccotti Manicotti and his Minion, were both animated characters on a TV show watched by Meatwad, one of ATHF's main characters. The show's producers wanted actual puppets of the characters to appear on an episode. They sent me the designs and I set about creating these two in three-dimensions out of foam and fleece.
