    Pajanimals are soft and cuddly characters from the creative minds at The Jim Henson Company. Featuring imaginative stories, songs, and adorable puppets characters, the Pajanimals' bedtime antics are designed to help parents and children unwind at the end of the day. In addition special merchandise releases, "Jim Henson's Paganimals" is set to debut on PBS KIDS Sprout later this spring.

    Sounds cute, but... I don't particularly like this passage:

    If anyone knows 4Kids like I do, they'll tout a large line of merchandise months in advance, and we'll never see anything come out of it.

    Still waiting for a Hudson Horsetachio plush... Not gonna happen.

    Pajanimals is set for TV debut in November '08!

    This original, live-action musical series is planned to debut on PBS KIDS Sprout in November 2008 as part of the evening programming block. Created by Jeff Muncy and Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, Pajanimals will star four cute and cuddly puppets -- a horse named Sweetpea Sue, a duck named Squacky, a cow named Cow Bella, and a puppy named Apollo.

    Those puppets look neat! JHC has a lot of productions on their hands.

    That's pretty cute there. I really like the Duck's character design... I noticed he has a slight Plucky Duck type lisp....

    I think it is!

    As for other performers, I can hear Alice Dinnean-Vernon and Victor Yerrid, but I'm not sure who the other Muppeteer's voice is... it could be Julianne Buescher for the horse, though.

    And if it is Dave Goelz for the dog, this may be one of the few times a classic Muppeteer performs with a new generation of Muppeteers. It'll be cool, if not for the fact that I don't get PBS Kids Sprout. :(

    Although I'm disgusted to hear that 4Kids (the worst dubber of Japanese anime, ever) is teaming up with the Jim Henson Company (the best kids' company, ever!) to launch merchandise to tie in with the show's debut in November.

    No, Apollo (the dog) is performed by John Kennedy.

    At first on hearing about this i thought here's yet another stinker from JHC (Animal Jam, Tomie De Paulo) but on seeing it, my my, this has serious potential, The puppetry, writing and direction are beautiful. I've always thought JHC are great at kids telly when they get it right (Hoobs, Moppatop, Fraggle and Bear being good examples) and i think they've hit on something here. Hope it takes off!

    I honestly think they do need to streamline what theyre doing tho - dump skrumps, dump puppetup, dump plans for any book adaptions, dump the embarrassing Sam Plenty - just concentrate on Fraggle, Pajanimals, the Weinstein fairy story movies, and sort out some kind of new Farscape style sci-fi. When they take on too much the quality tends to go right down.

    I must admit I find this show very cute, But I wish we saw some actual footage; not just a song.

    Yea. I think this will be an interesting show.

    Just a side note though......I like the design.....but for all of them except the duck the mouths really overpower the face and you lose eye contact Really easily....Just watch that clip & the dogs nose blocks his eyes Really well when he's trying to sing a sincere song....

    It just works against them.

    Great song & cinematography though!

    Wow..they all have the same mom?:confused: I wonder if they are adopted....I really like the horse :)

    It's the dog that does it for me as my favourite one. But I don't think that the mother is a mother as such, merely a carer (eg. Ms Clavelle in Madeline).

    Redsonga Well-Known Member

    Well, they all call her mom though:coy:

    Just thought of something. Mother can refer to a nun as a rank, so what if they are in the care of a nun. That or mom "Midnight snuggled" with 4 different dads.

    Dum dum daah:eek:! Oh, the gossip! But that is likely...
