SESSIONS ARE ALWAYS SUBJECT TO CHANGE 

SEPTEMBER 17, 2016: The schedule is now as "final" as it ever gets! Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)

Puppet Government

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It has, at times, been suggested that we would be better off with Elmo in charge than certain professional politicians. The panel will attempt to build the ideal puppet government. Would Miss Piggy make a good PM? Would Oscar's obsession with trash be an asset or a detriment to the Department of the Interior? Where does Smile Time Angel fit in? The Thunderbirds? King Friday? Punch and Judy? Yoda? Panel and audience will discuss the relative merits of each before holding an election.
