Yes, this is the fig. The other fruit.
Make a fig puppet to get in on the act and have those other guys do the opening song and dance.
Step 1: A scrappy character...
For this instructable I only had time enough after dinner to create the puppet head. I was going to add arms, hands (4-fingers - all puppets have only 3 or 4 fingers, something about the rules of cartooning), legs and oversized footwear.
You can use some white felt scraps or material for the eyes. I used two ping pong balls that I drew the pupils on with a permanent marker.
The whole thing can be hand sewn but I use my serger and sewing machine to prototype.
This puppet was created on the fly so you might note some imperfect seams and such.
