Hulu Picks Up 'Fraggle Rock'-Inspired First Original Kids Series 'Doozers,' From Jim Henson Company

If you like the Muppets, “Yo Gabba Gabba!,” and encouraging children to be entrepreneurial and interested in science and technology, you’ll be happy to hear about this: “Doozers” has arrived, the first Hulu Original Series for Hulu Kids. This new 52-episode show from The Jim Henson Company and DHX stars those cute little green builder guys in “Fraggle Rock,” officially called the “Pod Squad.” Spike, Molly Bolt, Flex, and Daisy Wheel are four kids enthusiastic about science, engineering, and art in the fantastical eco-friendly world of Doozer Creek.

“The series encourages kids to embrace their own creativity,” said Lisa Henson, CEO of the The Jim Henson Company. Inspired
by a whole new group of whimsical characters, our viewers will want to
design, tinker and experiment with their own ideas while learning to
have confidence and resilience to reach their goals.”

Other kids favs from The Jim Henson Company include “Fraggle Rock,”
“Farscape,” and the upcoming feature version of “Alexander and the
Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day.” Previous DHX Media productions
include “Teletubbies,” “Yo Gabba Gabba!” and “Inspector Gadget.”

Netflix launched its first children’s original “Turbo: F.A.S.T.” on December 24th, and Amazon Studios has been making kiddie pilots along with its grown-up series, presenting five new ones last week. “Doozers” kicks off (only on Hulu) on April 25th. Watch the trailer below:
