Robot Chicken, Original Nerd stop-motion puppet

original movie prop

Here is one of the screen-used Nerd puppets from the Adult Swim TV show Robot Chicken, created by Seth Green (who also voices the Nerd) and Matthew Senreich. This one was used in Season 4, Episode 17 which aired on Sept 6th, 2009 (at least, possibly other episodes as well). In the skit, the Nerd dreams of going to Oz (well, he really wants to go to a topless beach in France, but ends up in Oz anyway...), and is given the Ruby Slippers. The puppet is a foam covered wire-form stop-motion puppet with a resin cast head and shoes/feet. The pupils are a sort of sticker that can be moved around to simulate eye movement (similar to the way mouth-movement is created on the show- putting little 'stickers' of different mouth shapes over the mouth cast in the head). His eyebrow is fresh clay (still malleable) which would be moved and altered depending what expression they want him to have. (There should be two eyebrows obviously, one of them is missing unfortunately.)
Here's a couple of screen shots of this puppet being used in the episode. If you look closely at his left hand, you can see a glob of a sticky substance used to hold the Ruby Slippers in place. This substance is still on the puppets hand. The bag he came in was labeled 'Nerdma 1/2' which is from another episode, so it's possible (in fact, quite likely) that he used in other episodes. I watched the Ranma episode, and his clothes don't quite match, so if that is this puppet in that episode, they changed his clothes at some point (maybe they got dirty or ripped or something...)
