And here I thought him and Charlie McCarthy were a thing.
I thought the dummy was Gallagher?
“Dummy” means silent.
It wasn’t Hugo?
You know, if this guy could juggle, he’d rule England.
Maybe all this newly re dug up attention will convince Joel to dust off his lever finger and do a reprise of his childhood act what was good enough to get in the papers.
Another fine mess Joel’s gotten himself into.
Three crows in a row?
You better not be attempting murder.
That’s hilarious. Absolutely hilarious.
This is the story of a puppet named Stanley. Stanley wanted revenge.
Years ago, I was able to meet with Joel in one of those paid meet and greets before one of the live shows. Since I knew I was going to be able to finally meet one of my heroes, I prepared for him a “gift”. A document I called “Joel Hodgson and MST3K Through Wisconsin’s Eyes - A Retrospective Portfolio”, wherein I searched through every single Wisconsin paper that I could, and collected every single mention of either Joel or MST3K. There were some surprising things in there… it includes I think everything mentioned here, and more. I was lucky enough to be able to hand him a printed off copy of it, though I don’t know if he ever got around to reading it.
Heh, I might have spoken a bit too soon when I said “enjoy”. I forgot that I didn’t bother to highlight the actual Joel and MST3K mentions in the pages until AFTER I’d printed them out. I highlighted them with an actual highlighter.
So, I guess I should say “enjoy the DEEP HURTING as you try to find the mentions!”
He wore a black turtleneck but forgot the beret?!?!
Poor fellow. No wonder he never made it in showbiz.
The ennui. It was too great for the beret!
Oddly enough, I just found another interview with him at the age of 18 saying that a black turtleneck is a good way to hide the Adam apple, as it visibly moves when you switch between voices while doing ventriloquism and can ruin the illusion.
I mean, sacred bleu! Right? Sacred bleu?
The puppet reminds me of Project Popcorn.
I remember watching that and thinking “man I wish the transition from sketch to movie was more impressive.” I may have an aggressive fondness for the door sequences.
