The show is about the Pajanimals, four friendly animals who share the last moments of playtime before bedtime, sing songs, and learn a valuable lesson by traveling to whimsical lands. The characters are Apollo, Sweetpea Sue, Squacky, and Cowbella. The show, originally co-produced by 4Kids Entertainment, first debuted in 2008 as a series of ten three-minute-long music video shorts that aired as part of The Good Night Show overnight block on Sprout. The Jim Henson Company later partnered with Northern Irish production company Sixteen South (the producer of Sesame Tree) to produce a full-length series of 52 11-minute-long episodes (also paired as 26 22-minute-long episodes) of Pajanimals that debuted in 2011 on Sprout. The full-length TV series shows the Pajanimals doing some playtime before getting ready for bed. It also introduces some character exclusive to this show who the Pajanimals go for bedtime advice or any other problems. At the end of the episode, the TV show exclusive-character the Pajanimals visit would tell the viewer the moral of the episode.
