"One of my best purchases ..."

Reader Comment: "Clinton, I always have to smile when someone writes about or talks about a "Crazy Bird." (See post for 10-4) I wore out my first Crazy Bird and purchased a second one from you many, many years ago. I only use it in schools, cub scout programs, fairs and other "family" type shows ... but it's always been a hit. For cub scouts I actually take the puppet apart to show them how it's made out of a tin can head and plastic milk jug body. Then we talk about how they can go about making their own puppets out of household items. In my 30 plus years of being a vent, the Crazy Bird was one of my best purchases." Dale

    Tin can head & milk jug body. I think I KNOW that person! HA! I always wanted to get one of these great looking puppets myself. Oh well. Thanks for sharing. W.S.

  2. Aw, I had a Crazy Bird, too. It was a great puppet. I remember being surprised and impressed about what it was made out of and how many animations were on it. Loved the flapping wings. Moving appendages really makes a character come to life. Shoot, I wish I'd hung onto it.
