This is really well done and entertaining! Where can I get an Uncle Frank???

This the "best Instructional" video production to explain all of the three subjects mentioned that I have ever scene. If there were Emmy's in instruction for video production in Puppetry, this would be the sure winner. The script, video sequencing, and production integrity are all superb. Wow! Well done!

Thanks so much for your kind words! We're blushing behind our keyboards.
