Glove and Boots is a puppet-based video blog. The two main characters are a red, bearded humanoid named Mario, and an anthropomorphic groundhog named Fafa.

Glove and Boots was created by Damien Eckhardt-Jacobi and Vincent Bova, who first started puppeteering in the New York subways in 2004.[1] Realising that "Mario and Fafa begging New Yorkers for change"[1] was not the way to do things, Damien and Vincent began posting online videos. Their earliest videos were a pastiche of early edutainment shows like Sesame Street and The Electric Company, complete with some music videos.[2]

By 2010, the format received some changes in technology, and switched to a slightly older demographic, with more pop culture references.[2]

In 2012, Glove and Boots won a Twitter Shorty Award for Best Videoblogger.[3]
