Twisted Puppet Theatre was a cult hit that ran for 13 episodes in the summer of July 1996. It was a hilarious, fast paced variety show that was a hybrid of R rated humor and sketches (a la Saturday Night Live) performed by various puppets, muppets, marionettes, sock puppets, shadow puppets and stick puppets. It aired as part of a late night comedy block that also included the series Sherman Oaks and Howie Mandel's Sunny Skies.

The original title of the series was Cheesy Puppet Theatre, because the idea was to do a low rent SNL with puppets - but after everyone put so much hard work into the series it was no longer as cheesy as we imagined it would be, and it ended up being retitled Twisted Puppet Theatre because it was so dark and off the wall.
