Who is Pulling the Strings in New Puppet Reality Television Show?

Live Puppet Show on November 27, 2015 During Mount Shasta’s Winter Magic Festival

Mount Shasta, California – November 19, 2015 -  It’s being called the first reality television show for puppets. A new cast of characters has taken up residence at a family owned toy store in Mt. Shasta, California. The performers will star in their own television show on ePuppets TV sometime in early 2016.

The pilot episode of the show introduces an alien puppet named Morry the Lemurian who becomes stranded in a toy store. At night, after the toy store closes, and its owners go home, the puppets in the store come to life after being awakened by magic jelly beans given to them by a gnome who likes puppet shows.

“Toys coming to life at night or when grown-ups are not around is a classic storybook theme that we wanted to explore with a television show,” said Daniel Bryan, co-founder of the Mt. Shasta, California puppet and toy shop, ePuppets.

Bryan has hired production industry leaders Passion4Puppets to build many of the characters that will be featured in the episodes – one is a character named Bigfoot Bob.

"We are very excited to be working with ePuppets on these wonderfully creative endeavors to share the magic of puppets with the world," said a Passion4Puppets artist. “When ePuppets asked us to come up with a custom Bigfoot puppet we jumped at the chance to create an amazing magical character that we wouldn't mind hanging out with in the woods!”

“Just like reality television, we will have likeable puppets and some who are not as easy to figure out,” Bryan added. “As we move forward with our retail operations, we’ll also be introducing new characters and creating opportunities for licensing and entertainment programming.”

In addition to taped episodes, ePuppets will be performing a puppet show at Parker Plaza on Friday, November 27th at 1:30 pm during Mt. Shasta’s Winter Magic Festival.

"Retailer ePuppets is the type of toy store that children love. It makes a great addition to our downtown and provides products that the Mt. Shasta area didn't have. Please stop by the toy shop and see for yourself,” said Jim Mullins, Mt. Shasta Chamber of Commerce.
