RIP Van Snowden

Here's a really sad loss to the puppetry world...



Van Snowden was a really prolific puppeteer, from his extensive collaborations with Sid & Marty Krofft in the 70s (even puppeteering H.R. Pufnstuf for a number of years, including recently), to works in Hollywood cult favorites, like performing the puppetry for Chucky, and The Crypt Keeper.

This was a shock to me, I just now read about this, but apparently, he died last month from cancer; I really would've liked to meet him one day.

So long Mr. Snowden, thanks for leaving such an impression on the world of puppetry as we know it.
