Don’t look at these celebrity puppets before bedtime (22 Photos)

This has all the elements of an ’80s horror movie. Coincidentally, the puppets were made in 1987.

    Phil Collins/Genesis had a video with these freaky ass puppets in it. Land of confusion was the song I believe

      The puppets are by these fucking amazing British puppeteers called Spitting Image, they apparently had a TV show over there for a couple of years.

        Spitting Image used to be a satirical comedy show in the late 80's / early 90's in the UK. They used to absolutely rip politicians apart, it was brilliant. Unfortunately using puppets meant each episode cost a fortune to make in comparison to comedy panel shows and it got cancelled. Shame, because it was one of the best things on tele.

        You are correct, but I remember seeing some Splitting Image aired in the US back in the day as well. Moar trivia: Rob Grant and Doug Naylor were brought in as head writers at one point to help save the show and after doing so they left to create the cult comedy/sci-fi classic Red Dwarf.

          No way! amazing, iloved red dwarf #

    • gifftor

      That's what I thought of as soon as I saw these puppets. I loved that video as a kid (but need to watch it again to see if I "get" what was going on in it now).

      You realize that we've all dated ourselves pretty definitively, right?

      F*cking terrified me as a child. Terrified.

  • @Bathoris

    If they didn't have the names on the bottom, I wouldn't have guessed half of them

    • Jim

      To be fair, these are caricatures of what people looked like 25 years ago…

    These all reminded me of this damn Twilight Zone story. Scary as hell.

    • MylesofStyles

      I remember watching this with my father, bragging to him how I didn't find it scary at all. He hid in the closet in my room while I was getting ready for bed, waited until I was comfortable, opened the door slowly and walked out with a pig mask on. I love my dad.
