A very charming, slightly spooky weekly YouTube series created by Brooklyn puppeteer Jacob Graham – a positive message of acceptance presented in retro style with modern references, filmed using the technology (cathode tube blur, white-outs, early synth music, etc.) of the1970s.
Staying in this Xmas with bored young persons about?

Brain Freeze. A 13-part, Irish-made, puppet-based comedy science show for kids… with the characters interacting grouchily ‘backstage’.

I just wanted to let you know about Brain Freeze – a new 13 part comedy science show for kids that starts on CBBC [Children’s BBC] next Wednesday January 22 at 5.55pm.
It’s an Irish production, shot in Dublin and developed for CBBC by director Ian Benjamin Kenny, producer Colm Tobin, writer Aidan O’Donovan, producer Paul Madden and a brilliant team of voice over actors, writers, animators and crew. I was the puppeteer for it.
