This post will probably only be funny to those of us who own all the Arrested Development DVDs and watch them repeatedly. I had to eventually have a post that features Gob’s puppet Franklin. Gob (pronounced “johb”), in addition to being a terrible magician who runs around on stage while blasting “The Final Countdown,” also has a terrible puppet act with an ill-conceived puppet character Franklin. Here is how the series introduced Franklin:

This next video is Gob’s attempt to cut a record with Franklin. It’s a parody of Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney’s “Ebony and Ivory.”

And, for those of you who can’t get enough, this next video (7 minutes long) has every Franklin scene from season 2 pasted together in such a way that it sort-of makes sense, but not entirely. Naturally, it starts out with the first scene I posted at the beginning of this blog entry.

My next entry will be much more intelligent and sophisticated, I promise.
