All the characters in Holly Pop are either high school students, or teachers.
All the students are named after characters from other high school films, like The Breakfast Club, or Better Off Dead, etc... That whole genere.
And all the teachers are named after teachers I had in school.
Some of the puppets are based on the Elmwood Crew and a few of our friends, others are totally out of my head.
Miss Ellis is based on my friend Jena!
