POLLO GORDO - Animatronic Puppet.
One- 24 inch tall puppet.
Feathers, foam, silicone rubber, & mechanisms.
Head, neck, beak, eyes, wings, feet, & belly wobble.
We created our Pollo Gordo character to dramatize the wrong kind of chicken, one that is fed anything to fatten it up. In this commercial for PERDUE CHICKEN, he is seen being fed all kinds of junk- a banana peel, even a boot. We gave him a weighted belly, so when he walks his belly wobbles in a very outrageous way.
