A Daffy Mogwai marionette puppet from Joe Dante's horror comedy sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch. Daffy was one of a group of gremlins that terrorized the Clamp Center building.
This marionette was made for shots which exposed Daffy's entire body and was designed to be puppeteered from above, like a traditional marionette. It consists of a foam latex body, feet, hands, and ears. Daffy is covered in orange and white faux fur and features detailed acrylic eyes. The puppet is attached to a traditional wooden marionette control with fishing line and black string. The control is held on a custom-built wooden display. Sympathetic restoration was performed to resolve tangled strings and restore deterioration to the foam latex, specifically around the ears, nose, hands, and feet, while retaining as much of the original material as possible. The foam latex is fragile and exhibits minor cracks. Dimensions (puppet): 23" x 13.75" x 8.75" (58 cm x 35 cm x 22.25 cm)
Estimate: $40,000 - 60,000
