Everything that you may have wanted to know about Nestor, the missing blue puppet



So you know that Nestor, a baseball-cap-wearing alien puppet, went missing last week on Avenue B near East Ninth Street ... Serena Solomon at DNAinfo interviewed Nestor's owner, Tim Kubart.

Details!

Kubart, who lives in Greenpoint, was house-sitting for a friend in the East Village when he lost his beloved puppet, which he uses when he performs with his kids' band Tim and the Space Cadets.

And!

Frankie Cordero, who has been a puppeteer on Sesame Street commercials and Comedy Central, made the most recent Nestor, a process that involved illustrators drawing markups for how the puppet needed to look.

The currently lost Nestor cost $1,500 and took about two weeks to make. While he is hopeful that someone finds Nestor, Kubart is already saving for a new puppet.

Yo wizzle! Chill!!! Nesty is at my new crib in Kips Bay, breaking it in till I get out of this kook house. He's a good dude. U need to treat your man with respect. People don't like being fisted. Get it lower case?

He ain't getting it back. If the thief sees this post, they'll hit Tim up for the $1,500 it costs to replace it, not the measly $300 in the wanted posters.

Nestor warranted a mention in the current NY Magazine's "Neighborhood News".

Nestor met Smurfette and moved to France.

How do you loose something like that?? Is he 5 years old? I mean unless he was robbed or burglarized I am hard pressed to feel too sorry for this guy. Was he drunk in a cab and left it behind?? Not a way to treat a possession that you say means so much to ya.

Who knows. Who cares. I'm starting to hate Nestor as much as Vampire Biscuits.
