Mike Danata has a stock of these although I'm not sure how much they are.

There's a short but very funny routine on Mel Mellers DVD using the Rocky Racoon if you're looking for ideas :lol:

I bought this from magic box, I think it might be real fur though :? I'm not 100% sure but it seems quite real, I always been worried about using it because of this.

Rocky is made from real fur. There is a cheaper version, called Roxie, which is all artificial. That's the one I use. I don't think it's quite as robust as Rocky, but I find it handles better. Even though I refuse to buy a real fur Rocky, I can make comparisons, as my Zig Zag Raccoon illusion came complete with a Rocky Raccoon. So I now need to decide whether it's wrong to use something that I object to if I didn't buy it directly and had no say over whether or not it came with another item...

My Rocky cost 37.50(Canuck) at Morrissey's in Trawna. The spring puppet video was lame, but I learned all the basics.
I find it good for the 4-7 year olds. At show's end it's all they want to talk about.
I was producing it from my table but now it's my change bag(new version) or my huge Morrrissey Goose Pan( they sold it as a duck pan but grabbed me on the way out)! Joke..Dan and Phoebe are not that way.
Shop assured you it was not REAL fur. I remember outside the Corn Exchange Club in Cambridge in early 70's as I watched a lot of body-pierced Brit protesters get bent out of shape about Canadian sealers. Then they retired to the pub for pint and chips and fish. Luckily all the fish had voluntarily jumped into English trawler nets. C'mon folks. I live out in the rhubarb( wolves, coyotes, deer, loons, geese, ducks, Conservatives and worse. life and death begins at the edge of the hayfield. I know I write like Most Ernest Hemingway. I'm really joking.

On the sixth day God turned to Archangel Gabriel and said: "Today I am going to create a land called Canada, it will be a land of outstanding natural beauty. It shall have tall majestic mountains full of mountain goats and eagles, beautiful sparkling lakes bountiful with bass and trout, forests full of elk and moose, high cliffs over-looking sandy beaches with an abundance of sea life, and rivers stocked with salmon."

God continued, "I shall make the land rich in oil so as to make the inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Canadians, and they shall be known as the most friendly people on the earth."

"But Lord," asked Gabriel, "don't you think you are being too generous to these Canadians?"

"Not really," replied God, "just wait and see the neighbours(Brit spelling you notice) I am going to give them."ron0

rocky in my opinion is the best spring puppet out there.

robbie is realistic but brakes easily.
roxie looks awful and unrealistic
sweet pea the fake fur skunk looks ok but handles horribly
sammy real fur skunk looks realistic but like robbie its weak and tacky
fox same as sweet pea
