Haunted Hands, also known as the third hand gimmick, is a very useful tool when incorporated into the proper presentation. I have one not purchased here that works great in my platform shows. Besides using it to animate items behind cover, I also use it with Rocky the Raccoon to make it look like he is alive in his box while both my hands are holding it. If you want to do stage or platform work, I can recommend using them.

It does look cool. On Darwin's TT Encyclopedia, he goes over the gimmick since it's related to a TT. Then, he shows an improved version where instead of a fake hand, it's just a thumbtip you can attach to the dowel rod for the same effect. I think this idea is better because you don't have to worry so much about the skin tone not matching, and you can make your own.
