Avatar: The Last Puppet Bender is a series of parody videos based off of the cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender. It's a series of short, comedic skits done using puppets.

The original skit was created for the 2008 New York Comic Con, however it was so popular that several other shorts were made. The series can be viewed on kornersphere's YouTube channel.

Korra puppets were featured on a "Behind The Scenes" skit on The Legend of Korra's Book 1 Blu-Ray release.


Avatar: The Last Puppet Bender provides examples of:

  • Jive Turkey: In Hot Air, Aang can't hear Zuko well on Appa due to all the wind. He thinks that Zuko called him "brotha", which causes Sokka to scoff that Zuko's talking in jive.
  • Parody Product Placement: Aang and Sokka accidentally end up doing product placement for the first licensed game in Hot Air.
  • Spiritual Successor: The original short is a Avatar the Last Airbender version of Potter Puppet Pals.
  • Take That!:
    • In the first skit, Sokka makes fun of Mattel for not making toys of female characters.
    • Hot Air has a shot at Naruto when Zuko mentions that it took him 51 episodes to discover his destiny, which is still shorter than most Naruto fight sequences.
  • Your Mother: Subverted. Zuko can't hear Sokka that well due to the wind, so he mistakes "'Fine tune' what, you nutter?" as "(...) your mother!".

  • Who Writes This Crap?!: At the end of Hot Air, when Sokka and Aang suddenly break out singing "Apologize" by OneRepublic, Zuko turns to the audience and groans "Who wrote this junk?"

How well does it match the trope?
