Build Your Own Clod
Now you can make your own Jim Henson Puppet craft, when you build a CLOD from the Disney+ Earth to Ned show.
Naturally, the show and characters have the wacky look and silly personality traits that we expect from The Jim Henson Company.
Have you and your family watched the show, yet?
Have you seen every episode on Disney+?
March 21st is World Puppetry Day, so now is the perfect time to watch the show and craft a puppet.
Earth to Ned
Alien commander Ned is sent to conquer Earth at the behest of his admiral father, but he calls off the invasion after falling in love with our pop culture and celebrities.
Instead of blowing the planet up, Ned buries his ship beneath the Earth’s crust, sets up a studio on the deck.
And he enlists the help of his sidekick Cornelius along with his reluctant ship’s AI B.E.T.I. , and a gaggle of small monster-like creatures known as the CLODs, all so that he can star in his own talk show and learn more about Earth’s greatest resource….celebrities!
Ned, Cornelius, their Artificial Intelligence B.E.T.I., and CLODs are brought to life by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, the team behind some of Hollywood’s most iconic characters.
