Under The Puppet

Apr 1, 2024 - 

Melvin Campbell is a puppeteer on the PBS Show Donkey Hode. Not only is he playing the show’s newest character Cousin Hode, he’s also composed music for the show and written a couple of episodes of the show as well.  He’s also written for Sesame Street and The Not Too Late Show Starring Elmo.  I talk to the incredibly talented Mel Campbell about his puppetry career on this episode of Under The Puppet.
