In spring of '97, I shot a commercial for German television in Barcelona, Spain. The animatronic character I puppeteered for Jim Henson's Creature Shop is sort of a big teddy bear, which is the trade mark for a German Nestle's chocolate bar. In the photo below, I'm holding the bear's head, and with me is Karen Anderson, the little person from England who was in the suit. Barcelona is beautiful, the work went well, and I had a great time, even though my luggage arrived in Barcelona a day later than I did!
