Last night as part of the KickStarter campaign, a "live stream" was held with Joel Hodgson and the cast of the 2019 "live tour" watching "Experiment 907", better known as "Hobgoblins". Having left the series around 4 years earlier, of course Joel was not involved with the making of that episode, but neither had he ever watched it. So this was "new territory" for him. Now he and the "live tour" gang did a little bit of impromptu riffing, but they tried to avoid "talking over" the original dialogue and the "riffs" by Mike, Kevin and Bill. So, that left few "windows of opportunity".. A couple of times, Joel would observe, "Oh, that is SO a 'Mike line'!" and he would say it with genuine warmth. I do believe he was being earnest because he later revealed he had poured some whisky into a mug from which he had been sipping. Thus I think the "barriers were down" and his admiration was honest. He also kept wondering if the "Hobgoblins" were "puppets" that could be manipulated as such or if they were more akin to "plush" type dolls and thus having less "functionality". He finally decided they were "dolls" and thus wondered why they were constructed as such. (Personally, I figured they had at least one true "puppet" because it could at least open its mouth. the rest may have been "dolls".) But when the credits rolled and the name appeared associated with the creature effects, Joel sat up a bit straighter, claiming, 'Wait! I know that guy!" In fact, he was about to call the person, thinking he had the number on his phone. (This was after 10 PM eastern.) But then he remembered it was through a social media outlet, so Joel wasn't able to call the effects artist. Oh, @RJDiogenes , concerning both "hosts" getting Crow and Servo by there sides to riff, last night's "live stream" made it evident Joel is hiring not just Emily to appear in (I assume) half the episodes, but also the rest of the cast to reprise the roles for whom they auditioned and were hired. I did notice in that second KickStarter video, the one in which Emily was introduced, the two Crows conversing with each other did not sound like they were performed by the same person. Likely, one was voiced by Hampton Yount from the Netflix run and the other by Nate Begle from the "Cheesy Circus live tour".
