The 52-episode series from The Jim Henson Co. will debut on Hulu on April 25.

Hulu is expanding its slate of programming for children with Doozers, a preschool series from The Jim Henson Co. and DHX Media. This is the first original series pickup for Hulu Kids.

The 52-episode animated series features the Pod Squad, a group of children named Spike, Molly Bolt, Flex and Daisy Wheel, who learn to design and build. It will be available on Hulu and Hulu Plus on April 25.

"Our pod squad is right at home with Hulu Kids, because Hulu is a company of builders and innovators like the Doozers, and because kids can learn from and spend time with these characters on-demand like never before," said Jim Henson Co. CEO Lisa Henson.

Doozers joins children's programming such as Fraggle Rock, Pokemon and SpongeBob SquarePants on Hulu Kids.
