Futurama Hypnotoad Animatronic Puppet

by Lambert Varias

Special effects artist and Tested host Frank Ippolito made an impressive Hypnotoad puppet for Fan-O-Rama, an upcoming Futurama live-action fan film. I don’t have high hopes for the film (see its trailer below), but I do love the puppet.

It retains its hypnotic eyes through a pair of tiny OLED screens that display animation similar to the mystical alien’s pupils. A lever lets the puppeteer move its head and mouth, the arms can also be posed, and there’s a bladder inside it that can be filled with air to mimic how toads breathe. All glory to the Hypnotoad!
