I have been involved on a variety of Spitting Image projects from 1985 on including:
A series of cow commericals for “I can’t believe it’s not butter” set in a laundrette, a Wall Street Bank, a supermarket set, and a games show set "Pull the Udder One!" directed by John Henderson and Roger Law, 1996; Der Spiegel Newspaper commercials directed by John Henderson. Golden Arrow Award

The Winjin Pom TVseries for kids; Arena's Food Nights and Animal Nights with Alan Yentob for the BBC
I recycled the scrapped stunt car from the film “Brazen Hussies” - Capri to Cowpri. The Cowpri since starred in “ The Cars The Star “ BBC and also participated in the Car Nation Islington Street Festival, 1998.
Sets are raised four foot so that the puppeteers can work (more) comfortably. The performance is labour intensive - often 3 puppeteers operating one puppet, using feedback monitors
