The content, which launches on The Roku Channel on April 23, includes perennial favorites like “Mother Goose Stories” and “The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss,” as well as several titles available for the first time in years.

“Henson’s partnership with Roku is our first big step back into the AVOD market, providing hundreds of hours of our classic content to families,” says Anna Moorefield, vice president, global distribution, The Jim Henson Company. “Titles such as ‘Animal Show’ and ‘The Hoobs’ have not been available for many years, and now is the perfect time to share these evergreen gems with fans new and old alike.”
