• 'Barclay wears one set of gloves, fingers linked to potentiometers, to control Mr. Tinkles' eyes and ears. "I did a lot of marionette work when I was a kid, which I really loved — there's a delicacy and precision of hand control, just like with any musician, so the gloves were based around those abilities," says Barclay. Colleague Bruce Lanoil wears another set of gloves that control the puppet's facial expressions…. Another puppeteer is directly below Mr. Tinkles, controlling head and tail movements, and two more also have hands in the process.'
