Chicagoans who watched Saturday morning cartoons in the mid-Seventies may recall Gigglesnort Hotel, a puppet show featuring dragons, gorillas, a blob and the Lemon Joke Kid. Bill Jackson, the creator of the show, runs DirtyDragon.com, where copies of the episodes are available (on VHS only, unfortunately.) Local blogger Michael of RealLans.com was a puppeteer on the show for two seasons, as well as for many other projects, and has memories and photos on his site.
