More About New Henson/PBS Digital Puppetry Show
Sid The Science Kid is the star of a forthcoming digital puppetry series for kids.
The Muppet Newsflash reports that work is continuing on the forthcoming Jim Henson Company/PBS Kids digital puppetry series What's The Big Idea? (see previous post), but the show has been retitled Sid The Science Kid. The series' concept is using short sketches to teach children lessons about science and discovery and is being produced using the Henson Company's HDPS Digital Puppetry System. Forty half-hour episodes of the show are currently in production; there's no word whether or not it has been affected by the current writer's strike in the United States.
Look for Sid The Science Kid on PBS sometime in 2008.
