Web Video: Potter Puppet Pals
Alas, a cornucopia of awesome.
Neil Cicierega, of Animutation fame, created two flash cartoons featuring hand-puppet versions of the main characters from Harry Potter. The humorous cartoons quickly gained popularity (even with J. K. Rowling and Daniel Radcliffe), and the Potter Puppet Pals series was born.

Eventually, Neil and his friends moved on from animated shorts to live-action shorts featuring real puppets, and they've even done a couple of live shows with the puppets. The series is most famous for the number of memes it has spawned. Also, Neville is a butternut squash.

Shorts include:
  • "Bothering Snape": Ron and Harry bother Snape.
  • "Trouble at Hogwarts": Voldemort invades Hogwarts, and it's up to Harry, Ron, and Hermione to stop him.
  • "Potions Class": Snape describes Potions Class to Harry and friends in a very disturbing way. Not to mention Dumbledore wanting expired gorilla milk for his bowels.
  • "Wizard Angst": Harry's feeling cranky and pubescent today, and he doesn't know why!
  • "Mysterious Ticking Noise": The entire cast sings along to a mysterious ticking noise which unfortunately turns out to be a pipe bomb. (Yes, this includes Voldemort.)
  • "Wizard Swears": Harry, Ron, and Hermione learn magical profanity.
  • "School is for Losers": Harry Potter says school is for losers!
  • "The Awakening of the Incorruptible" (later renamed "Albus Dumbledore Lists Your Good Qualities"): The most epic Potter Puppet Pals short ever.
  • "The Vortex": A strange vortex appears, and Ron finally goes through puberty.
  • "Ron's Disease": Ron gets Wizard Lice, and only Hagrid can cure it.
  • "Snape's Diary": Harry steals Snape's diary, and he reads it aloud to Ron and Hermione.
  • "Mustache Buddies": Voldemort decides to grow a mustache and has Snape do it too.
  • "Ron's Parents": Ron has parents, Harry doesn't.
  • "Harry's Nightmares": Harry recalls a series of horrible nightmares.
  • "Draco Puppet": Harry introduces us to the puppet's puppet version of Draco Malfoy.
  • "Ginny": Harry flirts with Ron's hot younger sister. After realizing that they look almost the same, he commits suicide.
  • "Neville's Birthday": Harry, Ron and Hermione attend Neville's birthday party on threat of expulsion. In the end, Neville self-destructs.
  • "Apparate!" Harry learns to apparate and uses it towards his advantage. It goes horribly wrong near the end however
  • "Dapper Ron": Hermione saves Ron from a dashing curse.
  • "Martial Arts": Harry interrupts Defense Against the Dark Arts class to show what he learned in Defense in Martial Arts.
  • "Magic Can Solve Any Problem": Harry decides life would be easier if people were more like him.
