Note: This product can be powered by a 9-volt battery or by a specific AC adapter. (Battery nor AC adapter included with purchase.)

PLEASE NOTE: This product can be powered by a 9-volt battery or by a specific AC adapter. (Battery nor AC adapter included with purchase.) Please read and follow the instructions included in the box to ensure optimal performance.

If using a battery:
  • A rechargable Ni-MH battery is recommended for best performance and is a more cost-effective alternative to a common Alkaline (single-use) battery.
  • If using an Alkaline battery, it must be NEW and preferably a PREMIUM brand.
  • DO NOT use a Carbon-Zinc battery (often labeled "Heavy-Duty"). This type of battery cannot produce enough power to operate the motor.
  • To get the most life out of the battery, use in intervals no greater than 5 to 10 minutes. Operating in this manner will yield approximately 45 minutes of use.
  • If your tube guy begins to get stuck in a downward position, it is time to replace the battery or recharge if using a rechargeable battery.
If using an AC adapter, it must follow the below specifications:
  • Input: AC 100-240V (50-60 Hz)
  • Output: DC 9V (1A or 2A)

Puppet Gets Stuck Upright or Flopped Over - Fix

The instructions say don't run it for more than seven minutes. Forget that. I need continuous laughter. So if you're like me and you're really serious about running this tube man continuously, I recommend purchasing an AC 100-240V to DC 12V 2A Power Supply Adapter (Heavy-duty With 2 Years Warranty) available on eBay. The adapter makes for a stronger airflow and better action. Also, the puppet itself isn't weighted properly-- it needs an extra bit of weight added to the head in order to make it continuously flop over. You see, with an AC adapter, not included, the power of the airflow is so strong that the puppet stays in the upright position. To fix it, add weight to the top, so it flops over continuously. But with the battery power option selected, the airflow is too weak, and often isn't strong enough to lift the puppet from a supine position, even without any extra weighting. Also, occasionally the puppet flops over into the fan mechanism, easily prevented with a protective covering. I recommend weighting the head by taping a pallpoint pen cap to the top before the fringe begins.
