    Stop-motion ball-and-socket "Glow worm" puppet from James and the Giant Peach. Stop-motion ball-and-socket "Glow worm" puppet from James and the Giant Peach. (Disney, 1996) Ball-and-socket "Glow Worm" stop-motion puppet from the surrealist children's classic James and the Giant Peach, based on the classic book by Roald Dahl. "Glow Worm" (voiced by Miriam Margolyes) is a main character in the cast of singing, dancing and adventurous anthropomorphic critters who travel aboard an enormous peach. The highly detailed puppet is constructed of a ball-and-socket armature beneath a foam body that has been painted green. Being an insect of high society, her head is adorned with large faux rubies and diamonds, and she's dressed in a floral-patterned gown, complete with a large star-shaped brooch. Her right hand holds the post for her opera-style eyeglasses. The glow bulb is wired for light, but the electronics are untested. The puppet measures approx. 13 in. long; and is in fine overall condition, with minor tears in the foam, and one eyeglass lens missing.
