James & The Giant Peach “grasshopper” Puppet
JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH HERO “GRASSHOPPER” ANIMATION PUPPET - (Walt Disney, 1996) Original stop-motion animation puppet with ball and socket armature and fabric costume. Seen throughout the movie. At 19 in. tall, from antennae to toe, this hero “Grasshopper” puppet comes with an assortment of replaceable facial features, including eyelids, eyebrows, and a variety of mouths, each individually sculpted and painted. The mouths lock into place on the puppet’s head with a magnetic registration pin, allowing a wide range of lip-sync capability and facial expression. The puppet’s clothing exhibits some distress from production use and age and there is light deterioration of rubber components on fingers. Still, the figure presents well and is in Good condition. An impressive display of puppetmaking art.
