BIG PIRANHA - Mechanical Puppets.
Four- 10 inch long, life-size puppets.
Silicone rubber and glass eyes.
Swim, mouth, bubbles, tail kick and fins.
Four piranha were required to provide a scary enough threat to for a villain to scare our scientist into revealing Energizer secrets. A thin puppeteer control rod runs out of the top of these piranha, housing cables for tail kick, dorsal fin flap, mouth open/close and bubbles.
