With so many options for educational programming out there, competition is a good thing. One of the most recent players to enter the ring is Hulu, and the arrival of Jim Henson's DOOZERS back in April has been a welcome one. New episodes have been airing on-demand via Hulu and Hulu Plus, and this week comes four new ones - all based around the "Doozer World Expo."

Last week, the folks at Hulu gave us an early preview of Jim Henson's DOOZERS, with my little ones and I enjoying five episodes right here at Rock Father HQ. Like many of you who are parents now, I grew up in the 1980s, and the original HBO run of FRAGGLE ROCK was a big part of that experience. It was immersive, imaginative, and something special that became unforgettable. While the Fraggles may have been the namesake stars, I always wondered about the Doozers. Their architecture and engineering skills were always impressive (and according to the Fraggles, delicious), but I don't think it was ever really revealed why they were building all of those radish-flavored structures.

On the "Biography" page of PAUL WILLIAMS' website, it's pointed out that "he predicts that he'll be remembered for playing Little Enos Burdette in the SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT Trilogy." For a kid like me that was born in the 70s and raised in the 80s, I certainly do associate Williams with the role, but it was his work with THE MUPPETS that made him a huge part of my childhood. If you've ever seen EMMET OTTER'S JUGBAND CHRISTMAS or THE MUPPET MOVIE, then the music of Paul Williams has flowed through you. Now, as I share those works with my children, it flows through them as well. In PAUL WILLIAMS: STILL ALIVE (out on DVD February 5), filmmaker Stephen Kessler explores the mystery of Williams' lengthy career.

My daughters love PAJANIMALS. In fact, they're a part of Addie's nightly bedtime ritual, as we wind down by watching an episode, then follow it with their "La-La-Lullaby" song that we have on the DVR courtesy of Sprout. Now, the Jim Henson Company has announced that the cuddly characters are packing their bags and hitting the road for PAJANIMALS LIVE: PAJAMA PLAYDATE - a new, live musical production set to visit 50 cities in 2013. One of the dates happens to be just 15 minutes from Rock Father HQ, so it looks like we'll be checking this out! Full tour dates and details below...
