Pajanimals is our new show for young children following the amazing adventures of four cuddly musical puppets. We are delighted to be partnering in co-producing this beautiful innovative live action puppet show with our friends at The Jim Henson Company for Sprout, the US 24-hour preschool television channel, part of the NBC family.

Pajanimals was designed to help parents and caregivers develop bedtime routines for their preschoolers. Through their imaginary journeys, the Pajanimals 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.

Pajanimals features four of the most cuddly puppet characters ever. This inseparable quartet forms a nighttime community in the comfort of their magical, shared bedroom - Sweetpea Sue the pony, the excitable duck Squacky, the creative cow CowBella and the optimistic puppy Apollo - designed and built by the world-famous Oscar® and Emmy® Award-winning Jim Henson's Creature Shop™

The Pajanimals venture out on amazing imaginary journeys of discovery and delight and entertain children around the world.  The series is based on the original musical interstitials broadcast on Sprout.
