Hooper – PBS KIDS

by on Jan.14, 2010, under Games, post, Work

Hooper is the lovable guinea pig in the preschool interstitials on PBS KIDS and this is his site. The site features online activities with Dash and Dot that are featured on air during the preschool shows and videos from the interstitials featuring Hooper and Steve Songs. The site also features some cool mini games that are the reward for playing Dash’s Secret Treasure on air.

Hooper was animated in small pieces of video by Bully! that trigger based on user action in a Flash masterpiece by our own Mal Jones.

Dash’s Dance Party

Dash's Dance Party

This on air and online project was one of the coolest things I’ve worked on since coming to PBS. On air, kids are encouraged to dance along to songs sung by Dash that teach Spanish, rhythm, pitch and other subjects, and are directed to go online to keep dancing. Online, kids can make dances with one of four PBS KIDS preschool characters and play mini games to unlock new moves.

My online partner in crime Nina and I worked together to come up with the concept for this cross platform content and worked with Funny Garbage and the PBS Creative Services team to build it.
