Together they make up the bright, bold, and fun “Pod Squad” who share a passion for inventing.

The original DOOZERS were first introduced to television audiences through Fraggle Rock, which aired from 1983 to 1987 in the U.S. on HBO. That series garnered several awards including the 1983 International Emmy Award and a 1987 CableACE Award and currently airs in the U.S. on the Hub.
