Jo Jo Premieres in Short Form Series to Keep Kids Moving

That lovable clown JoJo, of the hit Playhouse Disney series, JOJO'S CIRCUS, stars in a new short-form series encouraging preschoolers to try basic energizing stretches, poses and movements to keep their body feeling good inside and out, and to help cultivate self-esteem for a lifetime of achievement and fitness. FEELING GOOD WITH JOJO premieres as part of a weeklong programming event, Movin' and Groovin' with JoJo Week, Feb.20-24, 2006, at 8:55 am). The series will then air in its regular daily time periods, starting Feb. 27, at 7:55 and 10:25 am.

The music-filled segments feature playful, simple and fun poses of JoJo telling viewers about the benefits of incorporating easy movements, stretches and poses into everyday situations, especially to overcome typical preschool-age fears.

JoJo shows how she twists, bends, stretches and practices "reaching for the sun," which for example, may come in handy when she's afraid of dark. Preschoolers are encouraged to follows along with her little pet lion, Goliath, as JoJo performs the simple yet empowering stretches.

The exec producers are Jim Jinkins and David Campbell (STANLEY, DISNEYS DOUG, PB&J OTTER) and Adam Shaheen, and is produced by New York's Cartoon Pizza and Toronto's Cuppa Coffee Animation. FEELING GOOD WITH JOJO features the voices of Madeleine Martin as JoJo and Rob Smith as Goliath.
