Hulu Debuts Original Kids Series — Its First — from The Jim Henson Company
Hulu has debuted its first original series for Hulu Kids, the company’s ad-free platform for children’s programming.
“Doozers,” created and produced by The Jim Henson Company (“Dinosaur Train”) and DHX Media (“Yo Gabba Gabba”), is an animated spin-off starring characters from the classic Henson show “Fraggle Rock.” Featuring four pint-sized “do-ers” and their family and friends, “Doozers” aims to encourage kids to design and create.
The show’s narrative integrates challenges based on the science, technology, arts, engineering, and math (STEAM) initiative.
“Doozers” will run for 52 episodes on Hulu Kids, with each episode featuring a running time of 12 minutes. Five episodes are currently streamable for free, with an additional seven available for those who subscribe to Hulu Plus. Hulu says it will roll out new episodes every three weeks, with holiday specials running throughout the year.
The series is directed by Phillip Stamp and executive produced by Lisa Henson, Halle Standford, Steve DeNure, Anne Loi.
On Hulu Kids, the show sits alongside popular classic and current-season TV programming like “Fraggle Rock,” “Pokemon,” “SpongeBob SquarePants,” “Thomas and Friends,” and “Caillou.”
