The PJ's, "Smokey" The Crackhead Puppet

original movie prop

Thurgood Stubbs lives with his wife Muriel in the housing project where he is the chief superintendent. The show, created by Eddie Murphy (who provides Stubbs' voice), follows the adventures of the Stubbs family and the others in the building, animated through a stop motion process called “Foamation.” This is a screen used “Smokey the Crackhead” puppet used in the TV series, “The PJs”. "Smokey" (Shawn Michael Howard) is a homeless crackhead whose antics often anger Thurgood. His real name is Elister, but was referred to as "Mr. Crackhead" and "Mr. Crack" in the first 3 episodes of the series. In one episode it is revealed that "Smokey" used to train fighting rats under the name, "Ratman Crothers". He is often insulted with the phrase "You damn stupid crackhead!" by Thurgood. Smokey" later quits drug use by season 3 but is still homeless and despite his homelessness, as well as his tendency to steal from tenants whenever possible, Smokey is considered a part of the projects community by most residents.
