Terry Fator

 The Original Dummy Company has created various characters that are now in the possession of Terry Fator. The videos below includes some of the characters he has purchased from us. 

   Here is Terry Fator with Rita Moreno and the Rita Moreno puppet we built for him to perform with at a gala that was in her honor.


   The puppet was based off of her appearance in the film West Side Story.

Terry Fator endorses Landon Harvey's The Original Dummy Company with one of several characters he had purchased from us.

With each puppet so superb in design, garnering audience immediate reaction, and functionality Landon tops his previous puppet, creating an immediate audience reaction when the character hits the stage! In my 29 years of doing ventriloquism full-time his puppets are my favorites and inspire me to joyously practice and rehearse more!



Landon Harvey is taking soft-puppet sculpture/art to a new level with puppets utterly superb in design, getting instance audience reaction, and functionality. He is quickly redefining soft-puppet making in the 21st century with puppets that don't just look and FEEL good but also offer the surprise of delightful special effects.

Dan Sachoff

Landon Harvey created Stew the Sheep for comedian, actor, and ventriloquist Dan Sachoff. In the video, Dan discusses the quality of the character and does some dialogue to display Stew's attitude. 

Bob Rumba

The characters Landon custom creates are really for me. So much so that they are in sync with me and seem like they were always with me and no one else.  They are comfortable to use due to an interior grip like no other. A grip so comfortable, you can puppeteer the character for over an hour because the grip conforms to your hand. 


On one of Landon's creations, a Gremlin, I could feel what he put into it. I know who ever gets the Gremlin will know his worth and as they implement him into their show it will become second nature.


Landon can't get better than that-if I could I would type it here.

Dennis Lee

Dennis Lee of Dennis Lee Productions discusses the new version of Baby Mickee also known as "Nana Puddin" that Landon Harvey of The Original Dummy Co. had built for his show. The style and design was inspired by Dennis' previous version of the puppet that was built by Verna Finley in the year 2000.
