* In the [[Wrestling/{{WWE}} World Wrestling Federation]], [[{{Wrestling/MickFoley}} Mankind]] once used a sock puppet named "Mr. Socko" to cheer up a hospitalized [[{{Wrestling/VinceMcMahon}} Vince McMahon]] in vain. The segment was a wild hit and Mick kept the sock around. Fortunately, his FinishingMove was placing a "nerve pinch" that put his hand into another wrestler's mouth so it fit perfectly that he'd stick the sock on his hand for the move and thus a cultural phenomenon was born.

** In one nightmare sequence, we see her as TheBlank but with a creepy smile much wider than a human mouth is capable over, while the puppet, sewn onto her arm, gnashes its teeth as drool drips. It was possibly a nod to the fandom jokes surrounding the evil sock puppet of doom from day one.

See also {{Muppet}}s, which are generally more complex, involving both hands (at least -- some Muppets are operated by two people) for a more lifelike effect. For examples where someone treats their own puppet as if it has opinions of its own worth considering, see ConsultingMrPuppet.

BareHandedPuppetry is an even simpler version where uncovered body parts (not necessarily the hand) are treated as puppets. For examples where someone treats their own puppet as if it has opinions of its own worth considering, see ConsultingMrPuppet.
