Do you like to laugh? Who doesn't? Watching funny TV shows, movies, and clips online is something people do every day, and now there's a new show that breaks the traditional comedy mold. Get ready to add puppet-crime comedy to your list of favorite genres, now that Yahoo! has teamed up with independent studio Vuguru to bring you "The Fuzz."

"The Fuzz" is the story of Herbie, a rookie puppet cop who sets out to prove himself to his fellow human officers by trying to clean up Puppet Town’s criminal jellybean trade. The only way Herbie can put a stop to the candy trafficking is to stop Rainbow Brown, the dangerous dealer. Rainbow Brown will stop at nothing to become the most powerful criminal in the city. Herbie and his human partner, Officer Sanchez, delve deep into a world filled with evil puppets, jellybean deals, puppet racism, and romance.

The 15-episode series is directed by Duncan Skiles and written by Christopher Ford and Jon Watts.

I had a chance to interview two of the stars of Yahoo!'s new show, and they really are quite the fuzzy characters. I've never interviewed puppets before, so I was not sure what to expect. Apparently Herbie and Rainbow Brown go way back, and now that they're pitted against each other on opposite sides of the law, it really could test their friendship.

After watching a preview of the show, I can't wait to see how the entire series will play out. "The Fuzz" premieres on Yahoo! Screen this spring.
