PERFORMER Joe the Armadillo
DEBUT 2002

Puppety Sockman the Puppet features in A Behind the Scenes Look at Kermit's Swamp Years, a film by Joe the Armadillo. He is discovered on the set of Kermit's Swamp Years by director David Gumpel and immediately hired for a scene in the film.

His absence from the final cut suggests that either:

  • a) his scene was edited out
  • b) Joe, who had been vying for a part in the film, kept his creation from completing filming out of jealousy
  • c) that Puppety Sockman the Puppet's rise to fame was all part of a cruel joke
