Instructables user vigothecarpathian adapted a holiday decoration to create a fully functional Beaker puppet that can be used as a traditional puppet but also moves his mouth along with the music when a music player is plugged into him.

Beaker-bot, for me is both an excellent puppet for someone like me who does not have good enough puppetry voice skills to talk on my own. I also can have him on display, and he can talk and sing without a puppeteer, which is one of the major advantages of animatronics. I plan on having him on display during holidays such as Christmas.

      Never mind – it is on the follow up link. Still, that video should be here.

    And to the cray-cray commenter above, you have a critical lithium-bicarbonate deficiency. Please leave the library computer terminal and seek professional medical help immediately!
