Jonny & Will’s Grumpy King

By August 23, 2012 February 1st, 2014 No Comments

Puppet maestros Jonny & Will – a.k.a. Jonny Sabbagh and Will Harper – have got to be two of the most talented and innovative puppeteers working in the UK today (and considering the depth of puppetry talent pool across the pond these days, that really is saying something). Earlier this year they produced three interstitials for Cartoon Network that feature a Jester desperately trying to entertain a very Grumpy King. Jonny and Will and their team hand crafted everything you see on-screen and the spots are a terrific showcase for their talents.

You can see the other two “Grumpy King” spots below…

Jonny and Will performed all of the puppetry in these spots with the assistance of Zoilo Lobero. To see even more of Jonny & Will’s fantastic work, check out their puppetry showreel over at Blinkink.
