If you use a soft puppet, What technique do you use to move only the lower jaw? Is it just better conditioning of your hand muscles or something else?

Depends on the build of the puppet Eddie. I saw Steve Petra gave you some good advice on crossing the index and middle fingers. I offered that same advice in the ** you do not have permission to see this link ** here on the site.

In some cases it can be as simple as pivoting your wrist to allow the thumb to drop. (Hard to explain, easy to do.)

The main thing is you are aware of it and will practice to minimize the problem.

I am definitely aware of it. I was a video I did with Zek recently and his head was bouncing everywhere. Now, granted I was just goofing around but that is no excuse. And I notice it more with Zek than my other guys. I’ve been working on it today, off and on throughout the day. What I have realized is that I need to work that muscle a lot more.

Lol! When I am inactive for awhile between shows, I notice my muscles start to ache when I pick Dangerous back up.

Talk about old age, I’m older than Eddie and Tom. I watched Edgar Bergen and Paul Winchell LIVE on TV, not on videos years later. It was BEFORE video was even invented…. they used something called film.

Wally – that is impressive, but … Mark Wade told me he used to watch vents being drawn on the walls of his cave as a child! Laugh
