Original Series Screen Used Daggit!

August 9, 2011 · Print This Article

Propworx is proud to present this historic piece of television history that was used in the original 1978 Battlestar Galactica, a screen used Daggit!

This incredible piece, named “Muffit”, is one of only two known to exist from the series. This item has gone through some restoration to bring it to its current state by the very talented Battlestar enthusiast Dale Long. The restoration includes work done to the silver and grey piping that adorns the arms and waist, new ear and eye domes, as well as upgraded electronics that remotely control the working ears and mouth. This piece was used by a monkey on set; because of their small bodies they could fit inside of the piece and still retain movement. The Daggit now rests on a foam and metal armature to keep its shape, and can be placed in several different positions. This stunning item, and others like it will be up for auction this Month, on August 27th in our upcoming Battlestar Galactica Auction.
