Funny Harry Potter Fan Film Short – The Mysterious Ticking Noise

Read Time:1 Minute, 6 Second
If Potters were puppets…

Are you a really big Harry Potter fan? Here’s a somewhat silly, but super fun fan video, called Potter Puppet Pals: The Mysterious Ticking Noise. These guys made a lot of little Harry Potter puppet shorts, but THIS is the best, the most beloved and well known. We Potterhead types have been known to play this video to a room full of fellow fans and sing it out loud together: happy little geeky freaks.

Once you watch this enough times, you can’t get it out of your head. Play it a few times. Catchy. Charming ending, too. There’s also a little subversive bit with Dumbledore to make you go WTF.  What character do you sing along with? (I tend to shout out Ron, Ron, Ron Weasley!  Confused? You’ll see what I mean when you view this.)

So here we go. It’s a little like the classic “Muh Nuh Ma Nuh” earworm from the old days in Sesame Street.

    OMG!! You got me! Dang it Jill…you have sucked me back into the fan sites! I love love loved it. Sorry Ron Ron is cute but….I have always loved to hate Snape, until I didn’t. Bravest wizard beyond words. And no, I am not a Slytherin. Snape Snape Severus Snape!!!

  2. I agree that the Severus Snape one is the most fun…but then I get distracted. 🙂

    I adore Snape and was broken hearted when Alan Rickman died. Truly. And I’m not Slytherin either; I’m Gryffindor. What house are you, Debra?

    Have you found any fan sites you think are worth listing here?

  3. Hey, Debra…do you like Star Wars? I have a few more parodies for you. (Look what you made me do; I have a whole parody section for you now!)

    Here’s a short one from SNL. Classic:
