The Pushmi-pullyu at a premiere party

The Pushmi-pullyu was built by the Jim Henson Creature Shop, along with 94 other animatronic animals, for the London West End musical Dr. Dolittle.

The Pushmi-pullyu was also seen briefly in the film version of Dr. Dolittle, one of only a few references outside the main story concept that was lifted from the original stories by Hugh Lofting.

One half of the Pushmi-pullyu was puppeteered by Lynne Robertson Bruce,[1] who had previously worked on both Buddy and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
