Jim Henson Interactive releases latest MuppeToon

Jim Henson Interactive announced today the next in a series of web-based cartoons with the release of "The Stream'' starring Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and his intrepid sidekick, Beaker. The latest MuppeToon continues the series in which the Muppets are exploring their new digs on the Internet at www.muppetworld.com. Written by seasoned Muppet writers, Henson Interactive continues in its tradition of producing high-quality, family friendly content with a wild dose of tickle-your-funny-bone antics.

In "The Stream,'' Dr. Bunsen Honeydew attempts to "stream'' his lab assistant, Beaker, from Muppet Labs at MuppetWorld.com to Paris, France via the Internet. As Beaker is hoisted into the funnel and streamed to the City of Lights, something peculiar happens and Beaker picks up a strain of the Michelangelo virus on the way. Sixty seconds of frenzied activity and hilarious antics ensue as Dr. Honeydew works to save his apprentice from a life spent in the depths of the cyber-verse.

To create the MuppeToons, Henson Interactive utilizes the Henson Digital Performance Studio (HDPS), proprietary technology in which traditionally trained puppeteers exercise their talents in rapid-fire, comedic repartee and physical agility to express the Muppets within a digital milieu. Henson's MuppeToons are powered by Pulse Entertainment's 3d software, which provides the viewer with fast download times and instant gratification. With the Pulse technology, only audio files are downloaded to the requesting computer keeping unnecessary files off the viewers' system and saving them from interminable download time. Check out the current and past MuppeToons at www.muppetworld.com/cyberama.
