The Griffin is from the Swazzle puppet show Hazel and the Dragon. With the beak of an eagle and the paws of a lion, he seems imposing and at first, but really he is proper, and a bit goofy. In the show he provides Hazel with one of his features, a key ingredient for a magic potion that Walnut the Wizard is brewing up. The Griffin was designed by Patrick Johnson, and built by Sean Johnson. He is performed by Patrick Johnson.
