Meet our puppets
Our puppets always seem to tag along wherever The Jolly Pops roam. They hang out before and after the show and often make appearances during the performance as well. Here are some of our most popular puppets!
Bacon loves to rock and "wiggle my squiggly tail." Every song he sings is, "the best song ever!" His favorite snack is cheese, and you're going to love the reason why.
Bacon loves to joke around and he doesn’t take any sass, but in the end he is always available for a “Piggie Hug” and loves the children very much.
Chompy "The Aligator"
His real name is Alexander, but only his mom calls him that. Chompy is a highly anticipated attraction. He loves to tell jokes, dance, and chat with the kids. But mostly he likes to "Alligator Dance."
the not so scary monster
Michael is a monster - in name only. He’s far from scary. In fact, HE’s scared of almost everything. The kids get it: we all get scared sometimes. Luckily, they can help him overcome his fears. He doesn't make a lot of appearances, but the month of Halloween you are sure to see him around.
"Jaque" the Magic Peacock
Say “bonjour!” to Jacque, a Magician Peacock who hails from France, or somewhere in Quebec (no one is quite sure). Jacque has his own song on The Jolly Pops debut album, and will often show up when we play it. Jacque performs magic for the kids and professes his greatness at every turn. P.S., Don’t tell him, but he’s not a very good magician; of course, that doesn’t stop him from trying.
Bingo is a rare sighting. He appears as often as “St. Stephen” showed up on a Grateful Dead set list. But when he joins the Jolly Pops on stage or in the classroom, things get bananas. Bingo tends to mirror the more active side of a 4-5 year old kid. This gives Mr. Billy and the children in attendance a chance to reel him in and remind him it’s not “all about the bananas”.
