Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a romantic comedy, produced by Judd Apatow, focusing on struggling musician Peter Bretter. After celebrity girlfriend Sarah Marshall dumps him, Peter goes to Hawaii to forget, but can't get away from her, finally finding a new love in hotel employee Rachel.
In a climatic set piece, Peter writes and stages a puppet musical version of Dracula called A Taste for Love, assisted by his step-brother Brian. Jim Henson's Creature Shop provided the Dracula puppets, not animatronic characters but hand and rod puppets performed by star Jason Segel, and based on his own personal idea. Peter Brooke served as creative supervisor and Michael Oosterom acted as production supervisor. The puppet entourage, made with fleece, included Count Dracula, Professor Van Helsing, a succubus (resembling the Sarah Marshall character), and an angel (modeled after Rachel), among others. The Henson puppeteers trained Segel, who sang and performed live as Dracula while Bill Hader (as Brian) sang and operated Van Helsing. Brooke noted that "We were concerned that the main hero puppet of Dracula was going to be performed by an actor, and not a professional puppeteer. But Jason is amazing and has taken to puppeteering like a duck to water." Henson puppeteers, some of whom appeared on-screen, operated the other characters and assisted Segal and Hader.
The Dracula Henson puppet was later performed by Segel on the 1,000th episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on December 15, 2009.
