Hey kid!! There's a familiar face from the past.    Nice to see ya on the board - and tell your uncle hi! 

I will let him know, 'Adopted Uncle' Strider  You know ... Uncle LIO and many others got sucked into the vortex of social media insanity  called Facebook. Many who have gone to the social media dark side  have forgotten their roots here at SMA.com.  He is trying to wean off the social media & news brain-frying congestion. Other's have transformed into compulsive FB users and it can get into politics, social issues & stuff, causing friction between 'friends'. Revisiting  here, it is a reminder how peaceful  this forum/community is ... BUT ... I digress! (off topic)

Even though this topic is a few years old ... for future generation of visitors that might wander here, I should post something that is on-topic  Compared to olden days, and even in the earlier days of internet, little information about armatures & puppet making.

If you have self-motivation and degree of dexterous ability ... so much out there to help you learn on your own. It does not have to be 'ball & socket' armatures. With frame grabber software, you can check the frame by frame progress which assists the animator in achieving smooth movements with well made wire armatures. Nick Hilligoss is the a Jedi Knight of using wire armatures in animation puppets!

Here is one example I quickly found. For those into creature/dinosaur-esque, a tutorial of making a puppet & DIY armature using hardware items ...
