Moodoo Puppets is going on hiatus!
Hey everyone! We love doing puppet shows and entertaining Los Angeles. These past 10+ years have been a blast! However, we're taking a break now. Unfortunately, we're not scheduling any new shows, so I can have more time for family & my latest projects. Thanks and I'll post here when things change!

"Best birthday party entertainment! Unique, original hand-made puppet characters from outer space and shows that capture the audience from start to finish. Very fun and interactive. Highly recommended."

-L.A. Parent's Best of 2008
"Martina’s Undersea Adventure was a big hit at my daughter’s first birthday party. Kids aged 1-9 were completely entertained. The children were engaged the entire show and loved it as evidenced by their laughter and spontaneous interaction with the puppets during and after the show. I highly recommend Moodoo Puppets for any party. An added bonus- Moodoo Puppets was so easy to deal with. The company is professional, courteous and incredibly efficient. They returned all my calls and corresponded with me by email in a timely fashion. . . and arrived and set up right on time! I hope to make their appearance an annual event in our home."
