What happened was I said something dumb but quickly edited it into a shitpost, which derailed the thread a little bit but now I wish to own up to my crimes and right my wrongs.
It gave me a good chuckle in any case!
I’ve taken another look and see what you and the OP mean about the frog looking like CGI. Not because it looks slightly off (in the way crap CGI does), but because entire movement looks too realistic to be a simple puppet. I would say the effect is streets ahead of Salacious Crumb for example, who moves more like a Muppet.
