Do you remember watching cartoons as a child? Did you, like me, not really grasp onto the fact that they weren’t real and that there were real people who voiced them? Did you spend your days dreaming of Raphael from TMNT and his sassy voice, or Cruella De Vil, or so many others?
Bubble bust: There are real people behind the characters (WHAT?) and they are so goddamn funny it hurts me. Enter Sockpuppet Theater, the brainchild of April Winchell of Regretsy and Rob Paulsen, who you know from voicing everything you loved as a child. They, along with Billy West, Pam Adlon, Fred Tatasciore, Kari Wahlgren, and Bob Joles, put up a new video every Friday of them being amazing, using socks. They take real conversations from the internet, turn them into scripts, and show you just how awful everyone is.
Also, don’t watch these at work.
New episodes every Friday–now you have double the reason not to do anything!
