Television Puppets

Online parody show Like Mike has added a new member to New Zealand's prestigious puppet alumni — a Sesame Street style version of Mike Hosking, which is much less wooden than their original puppet. The replacement Mike is in good company, as shown by this Spotlight collection of famous television puppets: from talking sheep, roosters, dogs and naughty Scottish mice (Chic Chat), to an unusual human puppet, to the assembled politicians of 80s satire show Public Eye. Speaking of eyes, no Kiwi puppet collection would be complete without Thingee losing one of his.
