D-Con Mouse Puppets Hunky Dory

The American rodent control company D-Con are well known for their commical television adverts and continuing the theme  decided to create two cheeky mouse puppets for the advertisment for their  iconic refillable Mice bait system - titled  "Mice love it to Death" and produced by Hunky Dory we generated CAD drawings of mouse characters and machined simple forms in EPS which we used to generate patterns for the structure and fur for the puppets.

The 600mm high  puppets were fairly simply animated - pupeteers were able to manipulate the head and mouth with their hand and the arms were rod operated. The eyes, nose and ears were static and the puppets also had an extra hand glove with fingers extensions to enable the "mouse" to grip objects.
