I own the Possum [Crackers] and the Platypus [Wade]. Until I can afford to buy more puppets, which one of those two would make the better 'smart aleck" puppet? Also, which one of the Axtell puppets do y'all think would make a good smart aleck character? I'm thinking either Wild Thing, or the Turtle [hyper-active turtle, as opposed to the expected slow-poke/slow talking turtle].

Next question: my possum's hand is coming loose from the arm. How can I fix this myself?

If you do a search here on the forum for glue you will find different types of glue that will hold the hand to the fabric. Or take it to a shoe repair place and they will have a flexible glue and will probably dab some on for you.

My vote for a smart aleck would be the opossum. Although he does have a permanent smile. Try the same skit with each (on different audiences) and see which goes over better.

I would go with the possum.
My possum is named Dodger DeCar.
He is a sweetie, but a stinker.
Everyone loves Him that sees Him.
He has a Hilly Billy Twang.
At it fits Dodger DeCar very well.

I totally agree with the idea of trying the personality out in a skit and see what happens.

That is the beauty of puppets. You can make them have whatever personality you want them to have.

Their look has to sell it though. I think the Possum can sell it.
