The Puppet Guy’s Johnny Fox Marionette

Posted by Michael on January 31st, 2018

After the video I posted earlier (Cardone talking about Johnny Fox) I searched for Johnny Fox on YouTube. Honestly, it was a mistake but I am glad I did. I ended up finding this video that I otherwise would have missed (and did, in fact, miss when it was posted last month) from The Puppet Guy, Lee Zimmerman. It features a marionette Lee created for Johnny only to find out he had passed away when it was finished. It is a cool puppet, full of special features that your average marionette probably doesn’t need!

Last Video Post Of The Year! [Something Cool]

Posted by Michael on December 29th, 2017

Frank Paris shares the coolest videos! I really mean that; he was taping magic back when it must of meant lugging around a bunch of cumbersome equipment. Now, he is putting those awesome old tapes online. This clip is too long for a normal day (about 30 minutes) but it is the last video of the year! Besides, it is Part One of his collection of Tannen Magic Jubilee videos… Visit his YouTube page to see the three other 30 minute compilations he posted from the Jubilee and lots of other cool stuff!

Have a very happy (and safe) New Year!
