Cinders, sometimes called Cindy for short, was one of the dragon puppets from the Puppetman pilot. A cute girl dragon, she is featured most prominently in the opening "Dragon Time" sketch. Cinders refuses to come out from the castle and play with Butane and Earl, until she hears the sound of a cuckoo. In a line from the original script, Cinders further justifies her refusal to join the others: "My mommy said you're a bad influence with no socially redeeming value." This implies that Gertha is her mother.
