Hulu’s Original Kids Series Returns For A Second Season With New Episodes Featuring Problem-Solving Methods And Encouraging Team Work And Creativity
Hollywood, Calif., May 7, 2018 – They’re green, they’re cute and they’re awesome – they’re the DOOZERS! Hulu’s first Original Series for kids will be back for Season 2 with all new original episodes starting May 25th, from The Jim Henson Company (Dot, Splash and Bubbles, Word Party, Dinosaur Train).
DOOZERS is an animated preschool series for kids featuring four best friends who live in Doozer Creek, a wonderful blending of a fantastical, modern and eco-friendly community. Dubbed “the Pod Squad,” Spike, Molly Bolt, Flex and Daisy Wheel bounce from one fabulous kid adventure to the next. Like a scout troop, the Pod Squad engages in exciting projects and has a blast playing together. The series celebrates the spirit of being an innovator and inspires all kids to have an “I can do it” attitude. DOOZERS features a ground-breaking design thinking curriculum, which is part of an overall STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) initiative. These DOOZERS are DOERS and put their ideas into action!
“The new season of DOOZERS continues to inspire and encourage invention and innovation,” said Halle Stanford, President of Television for The Jim Henson Company. “Parents can rest assured that their little DOOZER fans will continue to learn critical and creative thinking skills as they follow the Pod Squad on their playful adventures.”
The Jim Henson Company has appointed Canada’s DHX Media to provide production and animation services for the series. The Jim Henson Company’s Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford will serve as executive producers. Steven DeNure and Anne Loi serve as Executive Producers for DHX Media Ltd.
DOOZERS is a must-see for parents and preschoolers. The series is available to stream in its entirety, only on Hulu.
