Scott And Carol Present - Iwerks/HFE

Now this is a twist from the way things have gone in the past. Walt Disney, Universal, and Plopsa have all started as media companies and then built attractions based on their characters.

Hershend Family Entertainment Company, partnering with Jim Henson Group, PBS Kids, and SimEx Iwerks, have gone from a attractions property group to creating content.

What an interesting reversal, but they plan to start incorporating the Splash and Bubbles into their properties, beginning with the Newport Aquarium, expected to open during January 2017. The series will air daily on PBS Kids beginning November 23, 2016. Check your local PBS station listing or go to
