About this project

Support indie projects and keep our puppets alive by contributing to our campaign. We can't film more puppets without funding and need your help!

Don’t Kill Dr. Fongoo, Feed Him $$

The Doctor will see you now
The Doctor will see you now

Fongoo’s fate is sealed if you don’t help. He’ll live on a sad shelf collecting dust, never to be seen by the world. Blasphemy! How dare you kill Dr. Fongoo! Support us with just a $1 and your guilt will be absolved.

Why do our Puppets need to Live?

"If you took the Muppets, Mad Men, Tosh.0 and the Office, threw em’ all naked in a kiddie pool full of baby oil, IGEYL would be born 9 months later." -Dan Marcus

I can't wait to see what antics these guys will come up with. Give them a chance to make us laugh. Please support IGEYL, give $1 today!

We’re Bay Area Cray Cray

We spent the better part of two years putting together the first episode in our spare time. That’s self-funded to the tune of 40k, we obviously love what we do and hope you do too.

We have 3 sets in two locations, 3 audio producers, a full crew, a puppet designer, a seasoned editor (yummy), 2 motion graphics artists, puppeteers and a cameraman. Wow that’s a lot. That’s why we need 30k to keep on filming. Actually we need more, but I think the crew can manage without food and beer for a little bit longer. I’ve been keeping them in the basement, just don’t make me put Feista in a box. Boobies of all kinds deserve to be seen.

Mmmmmm....Feista
Mmmmmm....Feista

You laughed! Caught you!

We can make you laugh more. Give IGEYL at least $1 today!

Risks and challenges

This project has traveled a long way before getting here. We started off on a journey to the unknown. A few of our puppeteers had formal training and TV or film credits, everything else we learned along the way.

We've already got a proven track record of overcoming adversity. When we began we were a few friends with a script and a proof of concept. Now, we're a seasoned group with creative resources.

We had a key contributor drop out. It was a hard hurdle to pass, but we've been there and we've done that and now we're here. We have a new script that's even stronger. We can't wait to start filming and share it with you.

Watch our first episode on YouTube. We decided to make it free that way you don't have to take our word for it. Proof's in the pudding.

    Custom IGEYL puppet - We're going to have to create a new character or two for this episode. We can't guarantee that they'll be as cosmetically perfect as you see them in the show (these little guys take a beating in production), but it's all yours after we complete the episode. Just think of how proud you'll be seeing your little guy/girl/whatevah up there on the big screen of your tablet.
