As a variety show, Weinerville did pretty well for the preteen demographic it was targeted to. We just couldn’t get past the puppets. Actually, make that a whole soundstage, a complete world, if you will, of puppets all played by Marc Weiner. Of all the characters that he played, Mayor Dottie is the one that would really leave you with an unforgettable image. That wig paired with the screeching voice was pretty kooky if you ask us. Props to Marc Weiner for pulling off the one-man band act so effortlessly, though.
