    I loved this! The part where they were turned into tiny blokes in a Moke traveling from photo/event to photo/event was darling! You guys are so much fun to watch. I’ve been a fan for a few years but JUST found Watcher this week. So I’ve been binge watching. After seeing and loving all of the Puppet History shows, I wasn’t expecting to find another series I enjoyed as much, but I did! Thank you for all of the creative time and effort you and your team put in!
