The Jim Henson Co. Takes on The Skrumps

The Jim Henson Company plans to create a multiplatform program for The Skrumps, the vinyl toys created by John Chandler and made popular by his line of collectible figures and illustrated storybooks. Projects going forward will include online, television, merchandising, and publishing. A music video and additional Web content also have been created, and visitors can send e-cards, download coloring pages, and see the world premiere of the video directed by Brian Henson exclusively at Yahoo! Kids.
