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.
