Handemonium Puppets to be look a like figure for ventriloquist Tyler
2. Coach has blinking eyes and moving eyebrows. According to Ellis,
this figure was the first figure for which Gordemer ever created
3. As might be expected with a look a like figure, Ellis gave the
figure the name "Taylor," which was very similar to Ellis' first
4. Ellis sold the figure to Dr. Bruce Beyer of Nashville, Tennessee,
who donated the figure to Vent Haven Museum in 2002 in honor of his
5. As might befit a coach, this figure is currently on display on
the bleachers of Building Two. He cannot be seen, however, on either
of the Quicktime
Virtual Pans of the building.
