The Jim Henson Company and Sprout have teamed up to bring the characters PAJANIMALS to TV. The 26 half-hour episodes will air on the channel in the U.S. this Fall 2011.
PAJANIMALS are four cuddly musical puppets – Sweetpea Sue the pony, the excitable duck Squacky, the creative cow CowBella and the optimistic puppy Apollo—were designed and built by the world-famous Oscar® and Emmy® Award-winning Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™ from original concepts by Los Angeles-based toy and clothing designer, artist Jeff Muncy (Pet Alien).
The PAJANIMALS series will follow the amazing adventures of the four sweet and gentle characters. Through their imaginary journeys, the PAJANIMALS will model the skills preschoolers need to move through their days and nights successfully. Along the way, the PAJANIMALS discover how cozy and safe nighttime can really be when accompanied by friendship and songs.
