Puppets Get In On the Web Series Phenom With 'Puppet High'

ALTYesterday, we reported on a growing phenomenon in Hollywood: Celebrities are flocking to the Internet to stream their own web series. From Ricky Gervais to Amy Poehler to Jerry Seinfeld to Lisa Kudrow to Morgan Spurlock, stars have found a creative (not to mention, inexpensive) outlet to reach even more of their fans. But we forgot there was another part of the celebrity sphere that was getting in on the fun: puppets! 

Puppet High, the web series from Groundlings stars Andrew Friedman (better known as Charlie's Uncle on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Mikey Day, and Michael Naughton (who you'll remember from those inspired David Blaine spoofs you watched a lot in college) imagines a world in which a virus turns 20 percent of humans into puppets. So, kind of like a zombie apocalypse, but way more adorable. 

Luckily, they're only two episodes in, so if you missed out on all ridiculousness (including the latest installment in which puppet high school student tries, and fails, to play basketball) you can catch up now. But, as far as we can tell, there hasn't been a cameo by Franklin... yet. Make this happen, Puppet High.  Watch the new ep here and tell us what you think in the comments section below. 

Puppets! 

So, does this mean someone will, at long last, get a much-needed Avenue Q movie in motion? Make this happen, universe.
