About this project

Jungle Jim wants to be your friend.

Jungle Jim is wild about animals! Children will embrace his passion for wildlife when they see these innovative, educational music videos that seamlessly blend beautiful animation with exciting live-action footage of animals in their natural habitat! Support our project so your kids can join Jungle Jim on musical wildlife adventures and learn fun facts about animals through catchy, toe-tapping tunes sung by the animals themselves!  Jungle Jim  explores the animal kingdom with his friends Flip the Monkey, Dash the Cheetah, Scratch the Porcupine and Stripes the Tiger.


We've already produced five original songs, along with many minutes of beautiful animation featuring the lovable hand drawn animated characters that join Jungle Jim in his adventures through the animal world. Two of our videos have already been released and we've got three videos to go to finish season 1. Your contribution to our campaign will be used to create the final fully animated 5-video series. Kids everywhere are begging for more Jungle Jim, so we're teaming up with our community to make sure our children get to experience this exciting wildlife adventure. 

Why animation for kids?

As parents and teachers, we're tired of seeing our kids consume junk food entertainment. We want them to be entertained responsibly. Parents and educators alike praise the unique ability of our Jungle Jim music videos to educate, excite and inspire. The images are colorful, the characters are fun, and the music is infectious. The live wildlife footage brings it all together so children develop a greater understanding of the infinite variety of the world around them. They will remember important animal facts because they will be singing about them together with Jungle Jim and his animal friends!


Have a look at one of our recently completed music videos:

How was Jungle Jim born?

Jungle Jim was born after producer Steven Wagner had his three young children.  Every night before bed his children would want to read books about animals and talk about them. Steve woke up one morning with an idea for a musical animal show, and has since been developing the concept so that he can help kids everywhere satisfy their curiosity about animals.

What are parents saying about Jungle Jim? 

Parents are telling us that our videos are a great way for their children to learn.  Visit our YouTube channel and you'll see thousands of comments from very happy parents!  Look what people are saying:  

With the advance release of the first two videos in the series, our Facebook fans and YouTube subscribers have rallied in support of Jungle Jim. Children are watching the Jungle Jim videos again and again, and the number of fans continues to grow! The response from both parents and children shows that Jungle Jim is a perfect blend of entertaining animation and educational content.

The lyrics appear right on the screen and parents are telling us that it’s helping their children learn to read. Children are singing along and learning  the words.  Let’s give the children of the world more Jungle Jim music videos to learn from!

In a focus group with a local Boys and Girls Club, the children got up and danced to the music singing along with the animated characters the entire time the videos were playing. They were excited and engaged!

Why Kickstarter?

The cost of animation is substantial, and until now this free You Tube series for kids has been entirely self-funded. A successful Kickstarter campaign will help us complete the full length episode experience. Any money we raise beyond our goal will go to help us develop new music and videos. 

Our long-term goal is to develop a high quality educational animation channel for children.

Risks and challenges

We are an experienced production team and we continue to move forward with the completion of our animated series. Our animator is online, waiting for the funds to complete the hand drawn animation task. With your contribution, we can complete the animation process and make Jungle Jim available to kids everywhere. We are confident that we can guarantee our backers will receive the DVD's and other items that they have ordered.
