My favorite puppet show is called MST3K

Yeah, me too.
BUT, what if I were to tell you that there are other puppet shows from around the world that I’m pretty sure none of the MSTies ever heard of?

Nothing current, except MST3K. But I do love the old Muppet Show episodes!

I’ve always admired how much life and emotion Trace Beaulieu put into Crow. The realistic expressions (like lowering his eyes to read a report) are so impressive!

Aside from MST3K, definitely The Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock as far as favorite puppet shows go, but there are so many great ones, even excluding of Henson or Krofft…

I may or may not be the voice of this puppet (but not the puppeteer):

Okay. Thinking back, I’ve got a few of my favorite puppet shows. The Muppets, MST3K (of course), there’re also some puppet shows I saw on Saturday Morning Media (founded and owned by the amazing and incredible @themwaverly), and last but not least is this Japanese musical puppet variety show I saw on NHK ( Japan Broadcasting Corporation or Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai) that nobody has ever heard of but I did, that I would like to simply call it: YGQ.

In honor of the occasion, King Friday XIII has had the palace decorated with the finest festoonery.

I’m kinda expexting some questions you guys might ask me, like: “What’s YGQ, and what does it stand for? Maybe just say the title?”
I’ll say the reason myself on why. It’s because recently I’ve gotten the theme song out of my head, and I don’t want to risk putting it back in my head by possibly saying the title that’ll embarrass the crap outta me.
