Animal Jam comes to DVD
HIT Entertainment has already brought two shows from the Henson Family Showcase to DVD (Fraggle Rock, and Mother Goose Stories) , and they have plans for many others to be released in the coming year. The next show to get a DVD release is Jim Henson's Animal Jam. The show is a wild, music-driven, live-action dance show for preschoolers. Hosted by loveable puppets, Animal Jam used real-life kids and puppet characters to teach movement and physical skills. Animal Jam is a fun, curriculum-driven series designed to assist in the development of physical, cognative, and creative skills as well as, social and emotional growth. The show had tons of original songs, dance lessons, real animal footage, and humorous character-plots and sketches.
The show has two DVD's planned for release on May 24, 2005. The first one is "Jim Henson's Animal Jam: Springin' DVD" and the second is "Jim Henson's Animal Jam: Hug a Day DVD". Information on the exact features of the DVDs or cover art is not avalible at this time, but if anything is announced I'll let you all know. The DVDs are already up for pre-order on many online stores, with a retail price of $9.99 (or less). So if you are a parent of a 3-7 year-old child (or just an Animal Jam fan), I suggest considering picking up these two DVDs on May 24.
