A servo-operated George Mogwai puppet from Joe Dante's comedy horror sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch. This full-body puppet was created by Academy Award-winning special makeup effects artist Rick Baker for early scenes before the Mogwai turned into Gremlins and took over New York's Clamp Center.
The puppet is constructed of hand-painted foam latex molded over a mechanical body, covered in white, black, and brown faux fur, and inset with acrylic eyes and resin teeth. An array of cables leads from George's underside to control rods under the feet and a group of electronic servos mounted to a wooden base. These servos operate the puppet's various mechanical functions. The puppet comes on a wood stand with its servos inside the crate and foam padding securing it safely to the base.
This puppet exhibits some hardened foam latex and is missing toes from the right foot but remains in otherwise good overall condition.
