The Second Annual Puppet Camp and Startling Conclusion of the MIGIZI Fundraiser! is a special production that streamed on various platforms on October 30, 2020. The event was part of a fundraiser for MIGIZI, a support organization for Native American youth.

The special was hosted by members of the cast of the Cheesy Movie Circus Tour and features performances by Puddles the Clown, Toiley T. Paper (performed by Grant Baciocco), puppeteer Wayne White of Pee-wee's Playhouse, Bear from Bear in the Big Blue House, and the casts of YouTube channel Bird Call and the TV show Welcome to Anhedonia.

The stream concluded with the two new shorts featuring Joel Hodgson as Joel Robinson, Josh Weinstein voicing Tom Servo and Bill Corbett voicing Crow T. Robot.[1]

Behind-the-Scenes

  • The special was produced by Matt McGinnis, who was addressed several times throughout the production and appeared briefly.
  • Joel Hodgson, Josh Weinstein, and Bill Corbett were not together for the riffing segments, so the 'bot puppets were operated by Nate Begle and Conor McGiffin with Matt McGinnis acting as a silhouette stand-in for Joel.
  • During the final bumper segment, the character Emily Crenshaw's Zoom ID changes to that of actor Emily Marsh. Ms. Marsh then mis-pronounced Josh Weinstein's last name.
