We had a magic trick by Shaq earlier and I made a joke about Shaq Fu, one of the greatest or worst fighting games ever (depends on who you asked). And look what came out just yesterday! This amazing animated trailer for the long awaited sequel Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn!

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!
