I grew up in an era when TV was a huge part of family entertainment. I know I am showing my age here, but my family was one of the first to have a color TV on our block. I watched the live broadcast of Apollo 11 landing on the moon. I am still a huge TV nut and am happy as a clam snuggling with my family with a big bowl of popcorn while we watch a favorite show or movie. Because we are on a tight budget, it has been tough to keep cable in the house. I did not want to give up the variety cable afforded but I was tired of paying almost $150 a month for it. When we discovered Hulu Plus, which is available for less than $10 a month, I was so excited! We can enjoy shows like Doctor Who, Glee, Scandal and Spongebob as well as popular and classic movies and original programming.
I discovered the original programming by Hulu Plus a few weeks ago when I was browsing their vast selection of shows. I caught the Hulu Plus original series “Behind The Mask”, and was hooked. The series is about the people behind the mascots in high school, college, semi and pro sports. It was so interesting that I watched the entire season in two nights! As excited as I was about the many offerings for myself, I was looking for something the younger kids could enjoy. As luck would have it, the first Hulu Original series for kids, Doozers, is coming April 25th! This CGI animated preschool series comes from The Jim Henson Company, who brought you such hits as Dinosaur Train, and Sid the Science Kid, and DHX Media, who is behind the popular Yo Gabba Gabba and SuperWHY!.
This cute show from Hulu Kids is about four Doozers kids, a team of best friends who live in Doozer Creek, a fantastical, modern, and eco-friendly community. Dubbed “the Pod Squad,” Spike, Molly Bolt, Flex, and Daisy Wheel bounce from one fabulous kid adventure to the next, engaging in exciting projects and having a blast playing together. The Pod Squad loves to DESIGN, CREATE, and INNOVATE. These Doozers are DOERS – they put their ideas into action! If that sounds like work, think again! What kid wouldn’t want to design their very own Doozer Derby racing car, fly in a jetpack (or better yet…fly with a kaleidoscope of butterflies!), or build a giant life-sized gingerbread house?! Whatever they are doing, the Pod Squad always manages to have a fantastic time!
Here is just a sneak peek at this adorable show your kids are going to love:
I think this colorful bunch is a great way to introduce preschool kids to the concept of being eco-friendly and all their fun adventures. Be sure to mark your calendars for April 25 when the Pod Squad will come into your home and hearts from Hulu Plus!
