The Happytime Murders Trailer Makes Puppets Sexy Again ...Not Really

Set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans co-exist, THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS tells the comedic tale of two clashing detectives, one human and the other a puppet, who are forced to work together to solve the mystery of who is brutally murdering the former cast of “The Happytime Gang,” a beloved classic puppet show.

Melissa McCarthy plays lead detective Connie Edwards opposite longtime Henson puppeteer Bill Barretta who performs Phil Phillips, the puppet detective. Elizabeth Banks portrays Jenny, a burlesque dancer, and Maya Rudolph plays Bubbles, Phil’s secretary.
