The Jim Henson Company & marblemedia Team for Felix


The Jim Henson Company and marblemedia are working together on the comedy series Felix, which aims to debunk the stereotypes and stigmatization around neurodiversity and mental health challenges among children.

Created by Miklos Perlus and inspired by his neurodivergent son, the live-action show Felix is about a boy, his family and his “feels”—five original characters to be created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop that manifest his larger-than-life emotions.

The feels live in his house, follow him to school and eat all the good snacks—they’re like the worst pets ever. And now that Felix attends a school for neurodivergent kids like him, he’s finally learning how to live with his very real emotions.

“We could think of no better partner on this project than The Jim Henson Company to join us in creating a transformative family television series,” said A.J. Trauth, VP of kids at marblemedia. “We share a desire to bring the much-needed conversation around children’s mental health directly to audiences across North America, and the world. Miklos has expertly crafted an authentic, optimistic, and hilarious story about this very important topic.”

“For generations, the art of puppetry has helped us process our thoughts and feelings. By authentically depicting the nuanced and complex ways that neurodivergent children experience the world, Felix will use comedy and a cast of original hilarious characters to introduce audiences to new ways of thinking, reducing the stigma around mental health and inspiring families to improve their own communication,” said Halle Stanford, president of television for The Jim Henson Company.
