Helpsters

10.13.2019


Helpsters / by Tim McKeon / created for Appple TV+ / For years now, I have designed characters who have lived their lives amongst the pages of books, but on November 1st, I will watch as characters I have designed literally come to life on screen (Scatter performed by Tim Lagasse and Mr Primm performed by Martin Robinson). Thanks to the incredible peeps at Monkeyboys Productions, myself and Dan Cook were awarded the dream job of designing puppets for Tim McKeon’s Helpsters. Helpsters is a show for preschoolers about monsters who love to help people solve problems. The show is made by Sesame Workshop specifically for Apple TV+.

As if things couldn’t get any more surreal, a few weeks ago, I was invited to NYC to view a taping of the show. I watched awestruck as the most talented people in the industry brought the show to life. This whole experience has left me with a goofy grin forever stuck on my face.
