Huntington University professors Steve Leeper and Bryan Ballinger have created a segment for the NBC animated series “VeggieTales.” “VeggieTales” conveys Christian ideals to children through funny, humanlike vegetable-shaped characters. “Mr. Lunt’s Popsicle Stick Puppet Theater” will debut on Oct. 7. Ballinger, assistant professor of digital media arts, created the designs, art and building of the puppets while Leeper, instructor in digital media arts, animated the characters. Mr. Lunt, a decorative gourd who grew up in New Jersey and speaks with a Spanish accent, was first featured in “VeggieTales” videos and movies.
