I was watching the Morgan and West Penguin Live lecture and really loved their "balloon animals of death" routine. What are some other balloon animal routines that are worth checking out?

Don Caldwell has a book that is available for free on balloonhq called The Things That Fell Out Of My Head. It's great. He also has two videos on balloon-animals.com called balloon gags vol. 1 and 2. The book and the two videos show simple tricks using balloons. Some of them are magic tricks. Others are gags that involve no magic. He doesn't do full routines on the videos, but shows the trick and you can develop a routine.

He does a trick called the Big Book of Balloons. His full routine is described in that free book I mentioned.

There is also the balloon swallow that doesn't use balloon animals, but uses a 260.

The best balloon trick is swallowing a balloon, explained in my DVD and Justin Meitz's DVD. I get ten minutes of fun out of it.

I have many balloon bits in my show but Jeff Hobsons is my fav.

during my national tour I ended up putting in the show after the first month on the road to try out and left it in for the rest of the tour. 360 shows in 38 weeks and every show this was the trick I waited to perform! I worked on it all the time to spice it up and add to it. I love it and personally thanked Jeff recently for creating this awesome trick.

you can see my take on the trick here
www.deafinitelymagic.com
its the 3rd video of the 4 small blocks under the video player. (you see me looking at a kid laughing - that is my doggie bag routine

i cant remember who it was but the name george comes to mind as he had a mind reading trick with balloons that he shared with every one some time ago.
i never added it in but its always been in the back of my mind to work out a routine with it.

and steve bedwells - balloon swallow is an awesome effect that I have performed countless times as well. but not in my school shows.

Get a lineup of 5 or 6 kids and make them all different balloon hats; have someone eliminate down to one and reveal your prediction (you can also have the selected person pick a card and have the color of hat and the card predicted)

George Quinn aka magic George has a balloon mind reading bit, perhaps that's who you're thinking of? He's posted the routine on the magic Café if anyone's interested.

Morgan and West open their Penguin Live Lecture with an effect with balloon animals, that is very funny, a bit long but well worth taking a look at.

Years ago someone (perhaps Phil Goldstein?) did a ballon ball appearing inside an inflated 260.

I just attended a terrific lecture with Buster Balloon who has some great balloon magic routines including Balloon to Cane, The Adventures of Cannonball Pete, Card in Giant Balloon Dog, and the Big Book of Stuff. All first rate routines.

I thought that too, Buzz, since I can log in there but it doesn't seem to do anything or take me anywhere. Of course, it could be I am banned, who knows?

I cannot believe that even now in the 21st century magicians are still using balloon animals. So cruel!
For as long as space exists,
And living beings remain in cyclic existence,
For that long, may I too remain,
to dispel the sufferings of the world.

The Magic Bistro didn't die, but it moved to facebook. I didn't follow it because I preferred the old version. But I was alone in that.

Aldo Colombini had a routine in which a balloon dog finds a selected card. Cute and lots of room for byplay.

Just adding to the list.
