Puppet Birds

Crackers - The plucky corporate crime fighting chicken seen on the news satire program TV NATION/NBC/FOX/1994-95 and later on THE AWFUL TRUTH/BRAVO/1999.

Crackers was actually a man in a yellow chicken suit who wore a blue mask, cape, and gloves. He confronted corporate executives and politicians in the pursuit of justice. During one such adventure, Crackers visits Disneyland to advise Mickey Mouse about Disney's alleged unfair labor practices.

Other times, Crackers tried to enter the Detroit Free Press building during the great newspaper strike or to go after the Buckeye Egg Farm for polluting the area around the factory near Columbus, Ohio ("I’ve come here to Ohio to listen to the problems you have with corporate hooligans").

One source called TV Nation's Crackers "as a sort of obscene visual aid to help the filmmaker make fun of the excesses of capitalism."

Crackers was created by Michael Moore, a documentary film maker, now famous for his investigative documentaries Roger and Me (1989), Bowling for Columbine (2002) and Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004).
