I parented the head of a character to its body. When I attempted to bend the body with the puppet tool, the body moved separately from the head. Is there any way to achieve this affect?
(I also tried parenting numerous mouths to swap in and out on a head and then parented the mouths to the head. But when I use the puppet tool on the head, the mouths go their own way.)

Add a couple of track points to the body and motion track the head to the body?

Put the head and mouths and body all in a precomp together and use the puppet tool on the precomp.
