Internet television station downtownTV.com has a cute show called Puppet Music Hall, in which some fun artists drop by to sing a tune or two with a deep-voiced, red creature of some sort. The Dresden Dolls’ Amanda Palmer hams it up the most with the puppet on “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” and Devendra Banhart’s “Over The Rainbow” is the most “bacchanalian,” but Jenny Lewis is the fairest of them all, singing “Happy” (accompanied by Johnathan Rice). He even gets Billy Squier to sing “Everybody Wants You”! Hand puppets have all the fun.

    Yeah, I think Rufus Leaking from Pancake Mountain is the most connected puppet.

    yeah, Rufus ftw. he/it is pretty funny.

    this puppet though, can’t keep in tune. even those Noggin puppets can “s(tr)ing-a-ling-ling-ding-ding”. okaaay…i think i watch too much of these indie-rock puppet shows. oops.

  6. The puppet’s pretty lame, but Amanda Palmer is fucking awesome, so thanks!

  7. What, no “Billy Squier” tag?

    Kudos Lucas on the Power Glove comment, that made my afternoon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PCseAxG0dwQ

  9. Pretty good. Here’s another puppet show that’s (kinda?) for kids. Or maybe not. But either way it’s cool and the puppets look awesome!
