New kids’ programming on Hulu Plus: #Doozers #Giveaway

by Jennifer Donovan

Jennifer D. is here to share this sponsored giveaway. We were compensated for helping spread the word but my opinions are my own.


Things have certainly changed since my kids, now 10 and 15, were preschoolers. We had cable, sure, and we had children’s programming available most hours of the day, but not all. We also had some DVDs and VHS tapes at the ready.

But in the last 3 or 4 years, my own TV viewing and that of my children has changed. Today’s parents of young children have so many more options. I know it might seem lazy, but accessing content right on my TV is easier than dealing with a DVD. Streaming content doesn’t get scratched or lost or otherwise destroyed. What’s more, older preschoolers can easily access it themselves.


I think it’s cool that the streaming services like Hulu Plus are creating new content for kids. Doozers is the first Hulu original for kids. It’s a brand-new show from Jim Henson Co. (Dinosaur Train and Sid the Science Kid) and DHX Media (Yo Gabba Gabba, SuperWHY!). Watch Doozers on Hulu at  beginning today, April 25.

The Doozers are inspired by the Fraggle Rock characters. I love the bright colors, and I think their upbeat attitudes will inspire. The goal is to “inspire kids to design and create. The four Doozers kids from Doozer Creek, known as the Pod Squad, put their ideas into action. 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!”

I love that you have greater control on what you watch and don’t have all the commercials like on regular TV.


19 Jennifer J April 27, 2014 at 3:42 pm

I love that I can go to sleep at a decent hour and still keep up with my shows without having to buy a DVR.


20 Kristen April 27, 2014 at 7:28 pm

I love the selection they offer…I can get hulu on my roku, but usually use netflix. however, hulu has some shows that netflix doesn’t have.


33 K-Squared May 3, 2014 at 3:53 pm

There’s a wide number of things… As I have given it thought, the primary answer would be – I like that even though I can’t afford to have nice stations, children can still find entertaining / educational programs.


34 Tamar May 4, 2014 at 8:47 pm

I like the various shows on Hulu Plus.

I first discovered Bob’s Burgers on there!


43 RLS June 29, 2014 at 10:40 am

My son (1.5 yrs) LOVES Doozers. My only complaint is anytime I start to play something else on hulu plus he sees the screen and starts dancing around asking for it :). I tried to find some toys/books/etc but all that shows up are collector items from the 80′s. Any chance there will be any merchandise emerging?
