Puppeteering a marionette is a difficult task that requires incredible
skill.  I simply never had the patience to do it.  Just the sheer amount of time that the wires got tangled up was enough to make me stop even considering mastering this talent.  It takes a lot of practice to make perfect--and this video shows Rex the
Dog's first trial run.


As you can see, Rex is still a little rough around the edges at this point.  If I was to attempt this, the video would have been roughly 3 seconds long before the first big tangle of wires, leading to many expletives and a possible puppet mutilation.

And how the hell does the puppeteer get Rex to pick up and drop the ball????
