The Skrumps were created by John Chandler and picked up by the Jim Henson Company, and is now in production. The characters have been developed with puppeteers and performed using the Henson Digital Performance Studio, the Company’s proprietary animation system that allows CG characters to be performed by puppeteers in real-time. 

Lisa Henson said, “The Skrumps have a great new look that is very striking.  Each character has its own quirky personality with a rich background and they all share strong relationships that feel quite real.  In this way, The Skrumps demonstrate the very same qualities that have defined our company’s strongest character groups.   We are excited to realize these characters and introduce the world to Skrumpland.”

Here is a behind the scenes Featurette.
