Building on their reputation for exquisite characterisation and seamless illusion, The Flying Buttresses present their interactive Walkabout act: Pongo!
Inquisitive, affectionate, adorable and cheeky; the world's only eight-foot baby Obobee bird is loved by adults and children alike for his charming personality and stunning appearance.
This playful little hatchling is accompanied by eccentric pet shop owner Bill Oddity, a travelling salesman with a menagerie of the galaxy's most extraordinary creatures.
Pongo is a unique animatronic creature, custom built to allow for life-like animations, from the subtlest fluttering of Pongo’s eye-lids to his magnificent leaps and bounds.
Having accidentally been transported to our world with his dimension-hopping pet shop, Bill Oddity must find a way home by any means possible... and if he can shift some stock on the way, so much the better.
Prospective customers will be introduced to Pongo - an 8 ft tall flightless bird that is allergic to feathers, a mint condition Shroedringer's cat (which may or may not be in its original packaging) and a host of other critters that are cared for by, or otherwise infest, Bill.
Quantum physics meets animal husbandry.
