Glove and Boots is a Video Blog focusing on two puppets, Mario and Fafa the Groundhog. They often discuss things that are going on, in both their lives and in the world, from the Zombie Apocalypse to Time Travel to Twinkies.The show was created by Damien Eckhardt-Jacobi (Mario) and Vincent Bova (Fafa), two street performers who used puppets to entertain people on the New York City subway. Met with variable success, they began posting videos in 2004 with a style that was reminiscent of a pastiche of early edutainment shows like Sesame Street and The Electric Company, complete with some music videos. The show was on hiatus until 2010, at which time the format received some changes in technology and switched to a slightly older demographic, with more references to pop culture and the like.In 2012, Glove and Boots won a Twitter Shorty Award for Best Videoblogger.Their youtube channel can be found here. Their posts are often on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and occasionally make it onto Reddit. They also have separate Twitter accounts for Mario and for Fafa.
Edutainment Show: Early videos tended to be similar to Sesame Street in that there would be a lesson about certain words like Mario's "Word of the Day" (cyanoacrylate). Now they've moved on to explaining pop culture.
Epic Fail: When playing Rock Band, Mario, Fafa, and Gorilla manage to lose both after the song was already over and before they even started playing!
Mario was so taken in by Hanzi's commercial in "Amazing Product Commercial" that he bought seven boxes of Amazing Product when he and Fafa were supposed to be selling it in the first place. What drives this into Epic Fail territory is the fact that we never find out what Product is.
Furry Confusion: Mario is very hairy, but what he's supposed to be is anyone's guess.
The Ghost: Apparently Fafa has a sister, but she's never seen and mentioned only once.
