taking one frame at a time since 1999

here is some info on the puppets I have

I dug in to the boxes of my dads puppets. They are all from commercials. Jeno's pizza italian chef, Jeno's pizza Roman chariot ( 21 heads and 4 puppets plus the chariot and horse), Nice n' soft, Magic Chef, Lipton tea bag hand boy (?), Spiffits, and a few miscellaneous single puppets. My dad was part of the team at Cascade and later at Sandler, Coast and Trio, that did the Pillsbury Doughboy but all that stuff was pretty popular. I found one unpainted head today that I'll keep.  I'll try and upload some pictures now.

Hello Leigh,

My name is Hal Miles and I'm the CEO and Chairman of the Animation Hall of Fame, Inc.. Moreover your Father, Joe, and I first worked together at Cascade for several years and then off and on at Coast when it was in Hollywood and then North Hollywood. 
I just came across your posting on the stopmotionanimation.com website and was absolutely thrilled at what I had read. I have been looking for these puppets for years! Also, I actually created and animated many of the ones that you have mentioned. Thank you so much for caring for all of these throughout the decades.
I would love to have all of these for the Cascade and Coast sections of the Animation Hall of Fame museum, archives, and travelling exhibitions! We would preserve and restore any that needed to be and more over honor all of the artists that created them, especially your father.
Please visit our website at  http://animationhalloffame.org/  . Also, you can email directly at my corporate email address  halmiles.ahof@gmail.com  .
Please feel free to contact me at any time as it is always a joy to talk about my wonderful old friends and colleagues for those wonderful days in Hollywood.
My very best regards,
Hal Miles

Hi,

I am a school teacher and throughout the school year we use stop motion, especially covering social sciences and history. It's my favorite thing to do with the kids and its pretty amazing see several of them fall for it and now have channels and everything. If at all possible I would truly cherish a puppet, just one, to get into the technical side of puppet making. I think the kids would be totally inspired and amazed. Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!
