Neil's Puppet Dreams is a web series created by The Jim Henson Company under its Henson Alternative Banner and aired on The Nerdist Channel. The series stars Neil Patrick Harris who helped to create the series.


This web series features Neil Patrick Harris who lives with his partner David Burtka. Neil sleeps a lot and has strange dreams featuring puppet characters. Neil opens each episode by directly telling the audience "Hi, I'm Neil. I sleep a lot and when I dream, I dream in puppet." He then promptly falls asleep and has a puppet dream.


  1. The Lullabye (November 27, 2012) - Neil has a dream where he is falling through the sky in a dream world and a few puppets show up and sing a song to comfort him which only increases Neil's panic.
  2. Doctor's Office (December 4, 2012) - Neil visits a doctor named Dr. Mayfair (played by Nathan Fillion) to talk to him about the puppet dreams that he has been having lately. Neil falls asleep and dreams that he is visiting a puppet doctor named Dr. Feltman where his unique physiology causes a stir in the puppet medical community.
  3. The Restaurant (December 11, 2012) - Neil grapples with pushy customers and punny puns when he dreams that he is a waiter at a restaurant.
  4. To Catch a Puppeteer (December 18, 2012) - Neil's questionable dream moral gets him into a handful of trouble when Puppet Chris Hansen shows up in Neil's dream called "To Catch a Puppeteer."
  5. Dream Bump (January 8, 2013) - The dreams of Neil and David collide when David's dream consists of dancers, drag performers (played by Willam Belli and Detox Icunt), and an appearance by Joe Manganiello.
