Puppet Planet

Welcome to the magical world of Puppet Planet

A celebration of South Africa’s unique natural heritage, Puppet Planet uses puppetry, music and dance to tell science-related stories – with nine-year-old Thandi and her dog, Oogies, at the helm.

Thandi lives on a farm in the Karoo and it is here that they discover the fossil of an ancient mammal relative called Lystrosaurus. Oogies uses his magical powers and takes them 250 million years back in time – when the Lystrosaurus roamed the Karoo. 

Join Thandi and Oogies as they travel back through time to explore South Africa’s amazing past. Meet long extinct animals, investigate ancient environments and learn how life on Earth has changed through time!
