My family loves dolls. Whether they are homemade dolls of our own creation or dolls made by the most famous doll makers in the world, The Jim Henson Company. There is something magical about puppets coming to life and becoming characters with their own personality! So I’m especially excited to speak to you about the critically acclaimed Earth to Ned, the Jim Henson Company’s latest family-friendly series (available from Disney +).
If you haven’t seen Earth for Ned, it is the alien commander Ned (performed by Paul Rugg) who is sent to conquer Earth at the behest of his admiral father. The thing is, he is canceling the invasion after falling in love with our pop culture and celebrities. Instead of blowing up the planet, Ned buries his ship under the earth’s crust, sets up a studio on the deck, and enlists his buddy Cornelius (played by Michael Oosterom) for help, along with his ship’s reluctant KI BETI (played by Colleen Smith)) and a group of little monster-like creatures known as CLODs so he could play on his own talk show and learn more about the greatest resource on earth … Celebrities! How to do it. The show is fun and the puppets are out of this world!
Ned (the largest and most intricate puppet ever made), Cornelius, their artificial intelligence BETI and CLODs are brought to life by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, the team behind some of Hollywood’s most famous characters. And the same team gives you the opportunity to get involved in the action! Two lucky readers win a CLOD doll package! It contains everything you need to make your own CLOD!
And for everyone, everywhere … Jim Henson’s Creature Shop has created a list of samples and materials so anyone can create a CLOD. You need the following:
- Wooden spoon (body)
