The Mind Puppets is a 2018 American live-action film based on the book Mind Puppets by Sharon Brooklyn.
A boy named Matt Cooper watches a new TV channel called Puppet TV. The channel shows edutainment skits about puppets' daily lives with show names like The Adventures of Miss Frog and Dodo and Friends. Matt gets hooked and obsessed with this channel, and so do other kids across the United States. His sister, Ann, thinks he has an unhealthy obsession.
The channel's colorful skits, kiddie music, and energetic puppets brainwash children, making them do the puppets' every command. And at many houses, the puppets crawl out of the TV and waddle to youngsters and command them to do things that trick them into building a giant robot.
