CityKids

Title Graphic
Produced by Jim Henson Productions in association with The CityKids Foundation, this half-hour series combines music, comedy and drama to address everyday problems faced by a close-knit group of teenagers from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. CityKids marks the first time a television series was produced as a collaborative effort between a recognized leader in family entertainment and a not-for-profit, multi-cultural youth organization. Each episode was written and produced "for kids, with kids," with members of The CityKids Foundation working as performers, creative assistants and production interns. The series also stars a hip assortment of streetwise puppet characters created especially for the show.
