Modern Renaissance Man Neil Patrick Harris' new Nerdist Channel web series Neil's Puppet Dreams is a co-production with the Jim Henson Company that blends dirty jokes, puppetry (obviously), and even guest appearances from the likes of Nathan Fillion (Castle, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog).

The premise is that NPH has a disease known as Neil's Puppet Dreams, which combines narcolepsy and dreaming "almost exclusively in puppet."
