About

Join HENRY and his pet dinosaur HECTOR as they search the web for the "best puppet videos on the planet so you don't have to!"  Broadcast in 3D -- that's their apartment.

FLEXITUBE, television's newest puppet show, is an up-to-the-minute parody of the unlimited YouTube universe. The two leads, Henry and Hector, broadcast from their do-it-yourself studio in his bedroom. The on-screen conversations are fast and funny and spoken in the language of now.

MEET THE CAST:

  HENRY:
Henry is media smart with a wild and creative imagination. He is old enough to know how to program his own channel yet young enough to still have a dialogue with his stuffed dinosaur Hector. And why not? Hector has a mind (and mouth!) of his own

  HECTOR THE PREHISTORIC SPECTRE
Hector is Henry’s stuffed toy dinosaur who comes to life, like an unleashed id. Hector takes everything that Henry would like to say and says it.

 

CASSANDRA
Cassandra is Henry’s best online buddy. She is interested in *magic* and knows a whole lot about a whole lot. It’s a guarantee that when Cassandra Skypes in, Henry is going to discover something wonderful about something he never knew.


 

GRANDPA HOMER
Grandpa Homer and Henry are very close, because they live in the same house.  Grandpa Homer can usually be found in the living room, trying to learn about and navigate through “the intertubes”.  


These interactions wrap-around the videos Henry finds, and like a modern VJ (Video Jockey) he introduces a wide spectrum of videos that come at us fast and funny.  These off-the-wall segments include:

  LOOPY SLOOP
Pixilated pirates in a never ending and never succeeding quest for treasure.  It's like Abbott & Costello meet Pirates of the Caribbean.


 

FOREST 40 TREES
A modern day fairy tale about a mouse and a bear who are lost in the woods.  Like Gilligan's Island, but without the professor.


 

GEEK MYTHOLOGY
Roscoe Krainlyn, a weird kid, shows off his collection of, weird stuff.


 

JAZZ 4 KIDZZ
Jazz docent Van Rose' shares his love for the greats of jazz while igniting an interest in kids for this great American art form.


 

Other segments include twitters from the stone age with the Neandersons...


 

...a big voice for little people with Harried Harry's RANT & ROLL...


 

and visits with comedy legends -- all in puppet form.

Flexitube is a highly original, modern comedy that children and parents will enjoy equally. Created and performed by the award-winning puppet production company, Flexitoon (Pinwheel/Nickelodeon; Shining Time Station/PBS; and the DJ Kat Show/FOX).
