"Oscar and Herman PLAY INSIDE!" was originally created as a brief video tribute on World Puppetry Day - March 21 2020, the day after New York City began our country’s first official pandemic lockdown. But in the process of filming, creators Kirk Bixby and Laura Krouch realised there was a lot more potential for these adorable ideas on how to occupy your kids indoors. What began as one short sketch blossomed into 8 episodes written, filmed, edited, and released in the span of two months. Episodes were, and remain, completely free to view in order to give as many people access as possible. And soon enough, our little show with no budget, no pre-production, and only what was already available in the apartment, quickly became something beloved by kids, parents, teachers, and creators alike.
Broadcasts of new episodes became special family rituals, garnering binge sessions and many quotable quotes from our happy little fans. And from that popularity, two holiday specials were developed later that year, with a second season set to start filming in April 2021. In the midst of ongoing pandemic stress, we hope to give everyone a little peace of mind and some fun new activities to explore with “Oscar and Herman Play Inside!”
