Clifford the Big Red Dog

The reboot of Scholastic’s Clifford the Big Red Dog, based on Norman Bridwell’s beloved books, is a funnier, more contemporary take on the characters and situations in Clifford’s world, with a social curriculum focusing on imaginative play, literacy, and empathy.

Through the power of play and imagination, Emily Elizabeth and Clifford brave exciting new adventures together, explore their island home, meet new friends, and learn that the differences between us – even big, red differences – can often be the things that bring us closer together.

Read, Watch and Play!

Melia & Jo

Amelia Earhart was a fearless flyer in the early days of aviation. Josephine Baker was a singer/dancer/comedian with a wild imagination. These women broke barriers a hundred years ago, and have been inspiring others to follow their dreams ever since.

And they inspired us to create Melia and Jo, a pair of 5-year-old best friends, who’re the stars of our animated STEAM show for young kids.

Melia’s a techno-geek tomboy. Loves assembling junk she’s collected, twisting it around ‘til it moves, clicks, or flies. She’s rational, logical, loves order. Wears an aviator’s cap.

Jo’s wild and playful. Singing! Dancing! Constantly! Has off-the-wall ideas that prove to be brilliant. And a sharp sense of style; puts a paper plate on her head and it’s a beret!

In every episode of MELIA AND JO these brainy girls meet in Melia’s back yard lab to create something cool. Something kids can make at home!

Toca Boca: Hairy Stories

Our collaboration with Toca Boca is a short form animated show inspired by the Toca Hair Salon apps.

The series is a non­verbal, physical and visual comedy, with hair cutting buffoonery and farcical mundane plots.

The madness takes place in The Salon, somewhere in a small city. Two stylists and a dog work there, servicing an array of clients who come in for a modest job (a beard trim please) that inevitably spirals out of control.

The stylists, proud, bizarre and inept, have a preposterous hair­cutting approach that sometimes literally lights customers’ hair on fire. And as the stylists put out one fire, they usually light another.

The haircuts teeter on the edge of disaster, until Dog, the resentful and misunderstood shop­dog and cleaner of the salon, swoops in to clean up the humans’ mess. Unfortunately for Dog, neither customer, stylist, or the owner of the shop are aware of Dog’s talent. And most episodes end with satisfied (and oblivious) clients and stylists, and one grumpy dog.

Krampus

We created an animation segment for Legendary Pictures and Univeral’s Krampus, a darkly festive tale of a yuletide ghoul, reveals an irreverently twisted side to the holiday.

When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas.  Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers.

All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.
