Wicked awesome — FAO Schwartz has created a Build-a-Bear-like experience for creating “Whatnot” Muppets (the random background artistes of the Muppet world). The at-home experience is particularly clever — you get a set of cards and vinyl clings, put together the Muppet you want, send it in, and they make and ship you your Muppet. Note to my family: Yes, this is what I want for my Christmas.
“Puppet Up” — a recording of the Jim Henson Company’s puppet improv show — will be shown tonight on TBS. Improv on TV never quite works, but I’ll be watching this regardless.
