It is also an opportunity to appreciate the speed in which Pratt and Bagin must switch between characters or scenes and the time between playing the puppets and then portraying the humans of the town, highlighting the skill and concentration the two have. Their audience interactions within the contexts of the world they are creating further immerses us into the plot and strengthens our attachment to the oddball of characters, however some more character development and exploration of the relationships would assist in a stronger emotional response during the climatic conclusion.
