Go to lwn TV if you ahve it, on e/i; it's the old retro tv station. The Henson/muppeteers are on, and explained how puppets are no manipulateed and created s digital images, literally, no strings attached. We've come a long way from Kukla, Fran, and Ollie [And Kukla's name is dolly in Greek!]. What would Shari Lewis and my Lamchop think?! Claymation may be the forerunner of this technology, as are te cypber paper dolls out there. What next? Bunraku and shadow puppets are early ancestors of this technology as well. A good cite, puppetry.com.
