A Nickelodeon Pilot


The first week in November 1998, I puppeteered for a television pilot for Nickelodeon called "Me and My Friends." Shot in Orlando, the show features large costume characters, and also puppets -- the meercats shown above. The puppeteers were (left to right) Jennifer Barnhart, Rick Lyon (me), and Jim Kroupa (whose company 3Design made the puppets). The show, intended as part of the Nick Jr. programming block, did not get picked up in its live action form, but may show up as an animated series some day.
