Henson, Decode Revive Doozers

The Doozers, former residents of the classic series Fraggle Rock, are returning to TV in an all new 3-D animated series co-produced by The Jim Henson Co. and Decode Entertainment.

The new series, set for 26 half-hour episodes aimed at the 4-7 age group, will be produced in Canada for broadcast in fall 2010. Henson will handle the licensing to the U.S. market, as well as worldwide consumer-product licensing and merchandising. Decode will handle international distribution of the program.

Both companies are looking to secure pre-sales at MipTV.

‘The Doozers’ are back to inspire kids to make the world a better place by making smart, ecofriendly choices, and by inventing tools, gadgets, buildings, structures, and other technology that supports the environment’s ecology,’ said Halle Stanford, executive VP, children’s entertainment, The Jim Henson Company.
