    Mel Gibson as "Walter Black" hero beaver puppet from The Beaver. Mel Gibson as "Walter Black" hero beaver puppet from The Beaver. (Summit Entertainment, 2001) Directed by Jodie Foster, The Beaver follows the life of depressed toy executive Walter Black (Mel Gibson). After being kicked out by his wife, Walter decides to take on a new persona to better communicate, through a Beaver hand puppet. Straight from the set of The Beaver, comes this screen-used Beaver hand puppet. This puppet is the #2 puppet and after speaking with the puppet wrangler that worked with them all I was told this was the hero puppet used for a lot of the film. This puppet was Mel's favorite and was used after Walter gives the Beaver a bath; he is the clean version. All the puppets for the film were made by Tony Gardner's special effects company Alterion in California.
