ANIMATRONIC PUPPET

Miru was built for Disney Channel Asia's "Studio D" TV series. He was a combination hand puppet/animatronic, with cable operated eye blinks and electrically operated moving ears.

 

Core Crew Fx's, Paul Pistore designed the controls into the rod handle used to operate Miru's right hand, allowing one puppeteer to perform him without an assistant, if necessary.
