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.

** Baby becomes a fan of a show where all of the characters are sock puppets. After sitting down with Baby to watch the show, [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids Earl finds himself getting sucked in as well]] [[ParentalBonus with all the adult dialogue that would easily go over a kid's head.]] Fran however, refuses to watch because they're puppets.

* ''Film/MeetTheRobinsons'' has Uncle Fritz and Aunt Petunia. Yes, somehow he married his hand puppet, and they had children. Petunia's rather cranky and "goes for a drive" to calm down (he holds her behind a wall and an engine is heard). Bud only thought this was weird because she usually takes the Harley.

** They took the joke pretty far at times, like when Mr. Hat [[MindScrew broke Garrison and Chef out of jail by driving a truck through the wall]].

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' did an entire episode on this called ''Sock Opera''. Mabel develops a crush on a guy named Gabe, who is really devoted to hand puppetry, to the point that she stages an elaborate musical using nothing but sock puppets in order to impress him. [[spoiler: She has to destroy the set in order to save Dipper (who is being possessed by Bill Cipher), and Gabe sees this as the worst possible thing to ever happen. He considers Mabel to be "making a mockery of his craft" and starts ''making out'' with the hand puppets he never takes off. Mabel realizes she dodged a bullet.]]

* {{Music/Buckethead}} isn't one to exchange words himself, so he instead lets his severed head friend Herbie do the talking for him, as seen in [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Uh-lJqNfT1E a guitar lesson]] and [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n0BWMxPcb98 an interview with]] {{MTV}}. Herbie also assisted Buckethead alongside Bootsy Collins during [[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=abBisFhR78s a radio interview]], where Bootsy continuously told the host not to address questions directly to Buckethead, since he cannot speak. The host did so anyway. [[{{Main/HilarityEnsues}} Hilarity ensues]].
