David...although your Rocky performances are awesome....I still think your cups and balls routine with the lemons is one of the most entertaining pieces I've ever seen...the ending with unlimited lemons continuing to pop up is super...sincerely, jack

David Greene is normal size...the shells are normal size...it's just that the shells are MUCH closer to the camera.

Sheesh, that was easy!

The truth is, the camera adds 10 lbs to your shells and balls.....I almost feel as if I need to censor myself...

Nice to see you Dave....I'm a big fan!

Hmmm...I wonder if I could pull off producing Rocky as a final load to the Trade Show Shells??? Something to try...

Dave, rumor has it you will be producing an "Al about Rocky" DVD. Any truth to the rumor?

David,
There were rumors that the Rocky that you demo'ed with wasn't the one they actually sold. In watching your performance it seemed Rocky jumped higher, farther, etc... Is this merely a technique difference? Or is there indeed a "Mother of all Rockys?"
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

No Rocky DVD. Don't know where you heard that.

No, Dave I just use over the counter stock. When I was working for Magic Masters I could select the "pick of the litter."

Say Dave, don't you think the Rocky Instructional video is an idea whose time has come?

It's been done. I think Jim Pace did one a few years ago. Everything I know about the raccoon could be taught in 5 minutes-not enough for a DVD from me.

There is a spring puppet video on the market already. I could be wrong but I think Jim Pace put it out. Sorry if that is wrong.

Here is an idea that I have been using for many years that some of you may want to try.
Add a magnet behind Rocky's nose. I carefully dug a hole under and behind the nose. Dig it only deep enough to house the small magnet. The magnet should be strong enough to pick up a shimmed card but not so strong that it sucks it up right off the table. I used a silver craft magnet. Glue it in with elmers glue and then trim a little hair from his tail where it won't be noticed and using elmers glue the hair over your hole. The glue dries clear and no one ever notices. Now Rocky can do many things. You can shim whatever you want and he can pick it up, like a chosen card for instance. The possibilities are many!

You should be able to produce at least 2 or 3 real raccoons in those shells!

Welcome David.

Hi Regan,

I can see the magnet in your animal's nose. Daniel's is hidden better.

David -

I recently rewatched the TV clip from Japanese TV of you doing "Rocky" surrounded by the cast of the show on your Dave 2 video. That has to rank as one of the funniest segements in TV history. Their reactions barely allowed you to get the various Rocky bits in.
