Based in Nantes, France, the street theatre company Royal de Luxe performs around the world, primarily using gigantic, elaborate marionettes to tell stories that take place over several days and wind through entire cities. Puppeteers maneuver the huge marionettes -- some as tall as 12 meters (40 ft) -- through streets, parks, and waterways, performing their story along the way. Gathered here are images of several recent Royal de Luxe performances, from Belgium, Mexico, Germany, Chile, and England. [38 photos]

A giant marionette, operated by performers, walks in Berlin, Germany, on October 2, 2009. The French marionette street theatre company Royal de Luxe gave open air performances around the Day of German Unity in Berlin. The artists used the giant puppets to tell the story of separation and recovery to commemorate the fall of Berlin Wall 20 years earlier. (Carsten Koall/Getty Images)

With the release of the newest Muppets Movie, a few conversations about my foggy memory of a Cosby Show episode featuring Jim Henson's muppets came up. No one knew what I was talking about, and for a little while, I thought I had imagined the strange and surreal episode. Thanks to Youtube, I found the episode, titled "Cliff's Nightmare". It is still as terrifying and amazing as when I saw it for the first time!

"Cliff comes back from the hospital at three am in the morning and decides to eat a sausage sandwich. Unfortunately that sandwich was responsible for the weirdest dream Cliff had."

The National recently teamed up with game makers Valve (creators of Portal 2, which featured The National on the soundtrack) to announce a video making competition for the song "Exile Vilify". Well, the winner of that competition has now been announced - C.F. Meister - who cast a sad sock puppet in the lead role. Watch below!

Short, silent, but priceless color footage of Jim Henson working at his animation stand in Bethesda, MD around 1961.

(Thanks, Floyd Bishop for the tip and the Henson Company for posting the film)
