Charles Thurston - Sam Eagle, The Muppets

2015.06.06 NY Special Edition, NYC

Charles Thurston, a former puppeteer at Disney World now creates a series of pop culture parody books based off popular culture and classic children's stories...

Going through Thurston's portfolio were many fantastic drawings...Doctor Who's K-9 with Pluto's facial features, Good Boy K-9 where K-9 mets the Iron Giant, the Not Gonna Happen series where Pikachu meets various other fantastic characters including Figment, monsters from Where the Wild Things Are, Groot and others...

Sam the Eagle is a Muppet originating on the Muppet Show, and operated by Frank Oz. Sam is overly patriotic, stuffy and pompous...

Happy 4th of July !!!
