Henson debuts The Skrumps
The Skrumps is a new digital puppetry series from The Jim Henson Company.
The Jim Henson Company is developing a new animated property called The Skrumps, based on a line of colourful, monster-like toy characters created by artist John Chandler. The series is being produced using the Henson Digital Performance System and looks very promising. John Chandler, Skrumps puppeteer Victor Yerrid and Henson's head of Children's Programming Halle Stanford discuss The Skrumps and their development in the latest episode of the Henson.com podcast.
The Skrumps debuted today in four new videos available at Yahoo! Kids for a limited time. Be sure to take a look!
