Tony Urbano (Flight of the Navigator, Short Circuit, Dusty’s Treehouse) – Under The Puppet #51

http://www.UnderThePuppet.com – Tony Urbano is a puppeteer who was trained by and worked with master puppeteers such as Ralph Chessé and Bil and Cora Baird. Tony turned down a job offer from Jim Henson to focus on building his own career, a career that included hundreds of commercials and television and film work including Flight of the Navigator, Short Circuit, Men In Black, Team America and many, many more. It would be hard to cover his entire career and the impact he’s had on the art of puppetry in ten episodes but we get a good start here as Tony Urbano is my guest on this episode of Under the Puppet.
