Hulu has signed a deal with the Jim Henson Co. for its first original kids series, and it’s a whopper — 52 episodes of an animated show called Doozers that will become available ad-free on both Hulu and Hulu Plus beginning April 25. The series is aimed at the preschool set, an audience that Henson long courted with the Muppets. It’s about a group of animated kids called “The Pod Squad” who learn to design and create objects. “The show will be a celebration of the ‘I can do it’ attitude,” the company said. “The series encourages kids to embrace their own creativity. 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,” said the Jim Henson Company’s CEO, Lisa Henson.
