WE HAVE RETURNED!
What are we?
Funday PawPet Show is an Internet-based puppet show created by Randy “Yappy” Fox in November 1999, broadcast on Sunday nights from 18:00 to 22:00 ET from his home in Kissimmee, Florida.
On September 12, 2017, it was announced on the show's official main page that the show's original run had come to an end and would no longer be airing with new episodes, after almost 18 years of broadcasting and a total run of 756 episodes. The reasons cited were the end of Furstre.am and increasing audio license issues due to the music industry making it too difficult to legally use songs in their show. Video copyright complications also played a role. It was also decided that ending abruptly would be easier for the cast than doing an emotional last show, thus giving it an unexpected end.
However, we felt a void in our lives..
On September 2, 2018, the Funday Pawet Twitter account officially announced the show would be revived with new episodes once again on Sunday September 9, 2018 through different platforms by means of streaming. This was after rumors were confirmed about the series' making a comeback as the series resulted in a year hiatus. Unlike the show's original run however, the revival will not have new episodes on a weekly basis, so it will now run on a semi-weekly or monthly basis. On top of that, licensed content such as copyrighted music will no longer be used in the show due to royalty issues, so they must use entirely fan-created pieces or public domain music. Copyrighted videos will no longer be in the series' run as well.
