Beeker Rules

Ive watched this video multiple times today, I just can't get enough!

As an animator, its my job to turn lifeless computer puppets into living, breathing characters, and I've always loved how much personality can be expressed through the muppets. The muppeteers do so much with so little!

Beaker is effing great! This video is some great animation reference. Its amazing how such a subtle head tilt and hand pose can convey so much character!

Anyways, watch and enjoy! I hope they bring the muppets back to television soon.

This is so awesome. I sometimes call Elise beeker cause when she's upset she upturns her lip and it looks exactly like Beeker.
My favorite is when the violin erupts in flames.
