Phantom Troublemaker and Mr. Beau Brown as we talk with Tim Clarke!
worked with Kermit Love and for Jim Henson as a puppet builder and
designer on Sesame
He worked on The
and is the man that built Uncle Traveling Matt. Tim also had a huge
hand in the toy industry in the 80s, as he was the creator of both
the Sectaurs and Boglins toy lines – two of the most original and
notable lines of an amazing era of toys.
this episode Tim regales us with stories of puppet and toy design and
fills us in on what he’s up to now – still designing truly unique
creations and even re-launching the Boglins! Listen now and enjoy!
you finish the episode, you MUST go and check out Tim's Instagram
feed TIMCLARKETOYS. It features his work on all of his projects,
including prototypes and the design process. You can also find
pictures of his unbelievable TOTIMS line. These are some of the
coolest looking designer toys I've seen. If I weren't such a cheap
bastard I'd buy some.
