Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Neil Patrick Harris has debuted the first episode of his Nerdist Channel web series, "Neil's Puppet Dreams," in which the actor-singer-magician-puppet hobbyist-comedian-television personality hangs out with puppets in his sleep.

"Hi, I'm Neil. I sleep a lot, and when I dream, I dream in puppet," Harris explains in the beginning of the video, which also features his husband, David Burtka.

In the first episode, called "The Lullaby," the creepy-cute puppets of Harris' imagination (they actually come from Jim Henson Studios) sing a sweet melody incongruous with their eerie lyrics. "You're insides will be outsides by the end of this dream," they croon.

Harris previewed the series in a recent interview with Nerdist's Dan Casey:

Nerdist: So, tell us about Neil’s Puppet Dreams. What can viewers expect?

Neil Patrick Harris: Each episode revolves around one of my puppet-laden dreams – as it turns out, I’m a bit of a narcoleptic, and, unfortunately, all of my dreams involve creatures of the felt persuasion, ranging from lullabies to documentaries, from fantasies to music videos.
