While Nintendo’s Digital Event at E3 2015 was seen as a bit underwhelming to many viewers, the company still provided rousing thrills thanks to the return of its Nintendo World Championships event and to many, its charmingly fun puppets during its E3 broadcast featuring the cast of Star Fox, Shigeru Miyamoto, Satoru Iwata, and Reggie Fils-Aime: luckily, now you can find out about their creation in a new video from Nintendo.

Published through the official Nintendo YouTube channel, a new video from the company documents Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and company visiting Jim Henson Studios in Hollywood, CA. During the video, Miyamoto and others from Nintendo get treated to a tour of the studio, along with an insightful and fun conversation between Miyamoto and Brian Henson, the son of legendary puppeteer Jim Henson and current chairman of The Jim Henson Company.

As the puppets of Nintendo easily proved to be one of the highlights of the company’s E3 Digital Event, you can check out more behind-the-scenes looks at their inspiration and creation by watching the video below:
