Bienvenidos to my puppet world! ~~ In 2007, the first episodes of our YouTube web series appeared, which were intended to be a kind of Muppet Show 2.0 for adults from a Latino POV.
The webisodes track the loose narrative of a bawdy, snarky, edgy webisode ‘variety show’ run by an incredibly diverse ragtag cast of immigrant puppet characters branded: LosTiteresTV! (Spanish for ThePuppetsTV.)
The show is produced by Spanglish-speaking Señor Loro, a Cuban exile in Hollywood who claims to be Fidel Castro’s mustachioed ex-pet parrot. The variety sketches/webisodes under his brand include: a talking hermaphrodite marijuana plant, Mary Juana, in “You Must Be High”; a naked homeless man who dispenses astrological advice, “Naked Bob”; Mortimer Weasel, who teaches Jedi skills in a series called “Jedi Jabberwocky”; and a puppet telenovela with soap opera stars, “Conchita & Ronaldo”.
If you would be so kind, Stareable Community, I would love your thoughts on the sitcom pilot script. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD: THE SEÑOR LORO SHOW
