Happytime Murders Won't Be Kid Stuff

Well then. This seems like quite the good weekend for fans of evil puppets and killer dolls. First news came that Chucky is coming back in frightening form, and now word has arrived that Happytime Murders won't be pulling any punches either.

During an interview with Crave, writer Todd Berger dropped the following on fans...

I want to try to make the Heat of puppet movies. I want to be the Dark Knight or Heat but in a world where puppets and humans coexist. Brian was like, ‘This mystery actually needs to be interesting so that even if you took all the comedy out of it, it’s still going to be interesting to watch. It is full-on R. There is swearing, there’s sex, violence, murder. There’s no way... maybe with some work it could be PG-13, but as of now we’ve embraced the R rating.”


Happytime takes place in a world where humans and puppets coexist, with the puppets viewed as second-class citizens. When the puppet cast of 1980s children's TV show "The Happytime Gang" begin to get murdered one by one, a disgraced LAPD detective-turned-private eye puppet -- with a drinking problem, no less -- takes the case with his former human partner.

If only this didn't sound so very much like a variant of Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
