the making of Pete: part 1

Our star puppet, Pete, begins as Luna's stuffed toy and turns into a cavorting penguin always just out of Luna's reach when she falls into the Moon's puppet show. We went to the aquarium and watched the real life African penguins for many hours before making Pete. But Linda couldn't help but see the similarities to her cat Wilson, in size, coat pattern, and playful personality. As Linda worked on Pete, she checked in with Wilson to get his opinion. In the beginning he wasn't sure what to think.
