Puppets + Crank Phone Calls = Genius
Funny Garbage was asked to design the identity, puppets, sets, and production design for one of the most innovative and daring television shows to launch in recent years, Comedy Central’s Crank Yankers. Executive producers Daniel Kellison, Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Corolla, producers and stars of “The Man Show,” approached Funny Garbage with the challenge to design appealing, entertaining puppets, sets, and signage that communicated the bawdy and over-the-top urban flavor of the show.
The results were phenomenal: startling felt puppets who come to life and populate engaging, dense sets, show opens, transitions, and animations.
Crank Yankers’ animations and effects showcase FG’s highly developed, proprietary hybrid of graphics layering, After Effects, and Flash.
