Curious Pictures is an entertainment company set in New York that creates and produces television programs, commercials, on-air graphics, toys and games for audiences worldwide.



The company was founded in 1993 with a philosophy based on a tripod: “great work - make money - have fun.” It has produced the pre-school series Little Einsteins for Playhouse Disney and Team UmiZoomi for Nickelodeon, as well as Codename: Kids Next Door and Sheep in the Big City for Cartoon Network, A Little Curious for HBO and Avenue Amy for Oxygen TV. The studio produced almost 30 minutes of innovative motion-capture animation for the documentary Chicago 10, which opened the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. It has won numerous awards, such as 18 Emmy Awards and two Caldecott Honors (presented to top illustrators of children’s books). Four of its TV spots are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

Upwards of 100 commercial projects are produced annually. Production partners include the Electric Company in Toronto, Mr. Hyde in Paris, and Zoink Animation in Goteborg, Sweden. The roster of directors includes:
