    he had a bit with photos and make up funny captions . one of the photos was of a woman kissing a clinton puppet and a spock puppet was in the back. this puppet was from a brittish televsion show in the 80's i think that features realistic style puppets of celebrities and biting satyrical humor. also they were featured in a genisis video world of confusion i think. anyone remember that show and the name. i remember it being very funny and intelligent. probably why it wasn't on too long here in the states.

    Spitting Images, was it? Those were some frightening looking puppets.

    Spitting Image - not "Images" - probably more responsible than anything else for most British peoples opinion of Ronald Reagan!

    I thought it was Reagan in the back, not Spock. The Reagan puppet starred in that Genesis video.

    bringing old thread back to ask if anything is happening with this show yet.

    i wonder if the thread title could be changed to ask more specifically about spitting image.
