Pokey was a late addition to the lineup of puppets for “No Strings Attached”. The mini was sculpted by Antoine Bergeron and he was kind enough to send me a copy. The cast was great and fun to paint and best of all, he neatly fit into the puppet line.
Most puppets have a clear memory of their life before being transformed into a puppet by the swamp witch, though the memory starts to fade with time. When Pokey awoke as a puppet beside the Beastmaster, he had no memory of his prior life whatsoever. From the first moment he felt a clear connection to the Beastmaster, though. He likes to stay at his side and poke evil puppets who want to hurt him with his pointy horn.
