“I only hope that we don’t lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.” – Walt Disney

Everyone starts somewhere, why not start with a mouse? The new Squeaky puppet includes triggers, replays, and helpful controls. For added expressiveness, he comes with a variety of mouth shapes to look surprised, happy, sad, mad, unimpressed, and more! He’s got gestures like thumbs up and down, point, and wave. Download the Squeaky puppet here.
Created by Digital Puppets, a cartoon studio based in the U.K. design partners and brothers Scott and Antony Evans have been providing their services to individuals, businesses, and other studios all over the world since they began working with Adobe Character Animator back when it was still in beta.
“With just a webcam, a mic, and Adobe Character Animator you can animate the design yourself using face capture technology. With the addition of animated triggers, you can make your character do whatever you can imagine,” Scott says.
