Regarding the role of the use of puppets, this show threads a line where just about half of the characters are human, but the other half of the cast is People in Rubber Suits, Handpuppets and Animatronic Puppets. Where to put this series?
The main Big Bad even shifts in makeup from a puppet to a person in a rubber suit.
"Where to put the series" where?
Where to put this series in terms of whether or not it's a puppet show. There are so many forms of puppetry, people in rubber suits and live actors used at the same time this crosses the bounds of a puppet show, right?
Regarding product placement in this series, several books, especially children's books are quite clearly handled in front of the camera and are clearly recognizable. The author and the title clearly are on display. This is an edutainment show, though. Anyone got any opinions on this aspect?
What a kind of villain is Karbonkel?
He has a grudge against the world because of his illiteracy and the lack of patience to initially learn it. And if he can't, nobody can. Also, he tries to restore his species to their former glory. he has some tastes of Driven to Villainy, but here Nature vs. Nurture comes into play. He did learn to write one word, whereas he and his entire species is illiterate by default. He does give Mik a first clue, but continues as an antagonist for the remainder of the season.
