The Skrumps is a Jim Henson Company digital studio project based on a series of original characters created by John Chandler.

From a character-development improv session (including lead puppeteers Allan Trautman, Julianne Buescher, Victor Yerrid, and Brian Henson), a pitch tape was shot in October 2006 to test the show and characters. [1]

Several short videos, including a music video and 3 character video-blogs, were produced and distributed on Yahoo Kids! in January 2007 to launch the brand. Four more videos were posted on Yahoo Kids in July 2007, and more appeared throughout the summer and fall of 2007. The Skrumps were featured in their first interactive game which launched on the Yahoo! Kids in March 2008.[2]

The company is currently working on two long-form direct-to-DVD films featuring the characters.[3] The Jim Henson Company also reports that they hope to bring the characters to television with a full TV series and supporting merchandise.[4]
