"Everybody knows it!"
[edit] Puppet Homestar Runner

The puppet was created in September 2003. His eyes are made of felt, so they can be moved around if necessary. They are only seen on one side of his head at a time, similar to his Flash counterpart. His propeller can be spun, and he frequently asks others to "spin his buzzer", although it has a tendency to fall off. Being a puppet, his legs are never shown on screen. According to himself in Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 17.2, he has "eight percent more sass than the regular Homestar". He refers to the bottom of his mouth as a "mouth-shelf", which is handy for catching snowflakes.

"Going on my 7th coffee run!"

"RIP fleshtangle mouth"
[edit] Puppet Strong Bad

The first puppet was created in January 2005. He had a red piece above his mouth that slid up and down as he talked, giving the illusion of his mouth moving, as it does in the toons. His head could rotate, and his arms were usually controlled from below using wires. Unlike most puppets, his legs are visible at times, dangling below his body.

A new Strong Bad puppet debuted in 2016, first seen from behind in a tweet. This puppet is smaller and has a fully opening underbite mouth. It was created by the people at the Georgia Puppetry Museum, as revealed to a fan when they talked in 2019.

[edit] Puppet The Cheat

While a Kick The Cheat doll was used as a puppet in Puppet Time and Some Puppet Stuff, The Cheat uses a similar but unique, handcrafted doll which debuted in Everybody Knows It. This puppet's defining features include more consistent dots on his back, a red-orange colored swirl on his chest (colored rather than embroidered), and pure black oval-shaped button eyes.

"Forget you, whitey! I'm going solo!"

"You ain't got no character, whitey!"
[edit] Puppet Doreauxgard

Much like the cartoon version, the original puppet was merely a cantaloupe jammed onto a pencil with a silly face drawn on him. A more puppet-like version of Doreauxgard, complete with an opening mouth and a felt green tongue, was later made.

"Nice upchuck, Bennedetto!"
[edit] Puppet Frank Bennedetto

The "puppet" is a Presto PopLite hot air corn popper, the same popcorn maker that the animated version of Frank is modeled after.

"Hey, juys!"
[edit] Puppet Marshie

Due to Marshie's lack of a body, the arm controlling the puppet can often be seen.

@StrongBadActual Tweet (23 Apr 2015)
"I totally just ate your cat."
[edit] Puppet Rocoulm

Designed to look like a Halloween animatronic decoration. The torch glows constantly; when activated, the eyes light up red, mouth opens and closes, arms move slowly, and tinny audio of the Jibblies 2 theme plays. The Unconcerned Citizen also enhances its appearance with green laser lights and a fog machine.

A puppet?
[edit] Puppet Killingyouguy

His body appears to be a large box. His skin is felt while his singlet is velvet, and his eyebrows are pipe cleaners. The scar and bullet hole sticky notes are made of real paper.

[edit] Cheat Commandos

All the Commandos are modified Kick The Cheat plush toys, with the exception of Firebert (The Cheat puppet). Notably, these Cheat Commandos exist in the same universe as Strong Bad and/or Dangeresque, unlike their animated versions.
