Behind the Scenes of 2014: YOU ARE HISTORY!

COMING SOOOOOOON!!!

Behind the Scenes of “Elf Fun Factory”!

This holiday season, JibJab whipped up not one, but TWO eCards! One uses cutting edge CGI technology (computers and stuff), while the other went more old school (stop motion animation). It’s the best of both worlds! First up, we’ll get hi tech with our CGI card, “Elf Fun Factory“… All of our productions start with […]

BEHIND THE SCENES of “Bird is the Word”!

JibJab Thanksgiving eCard this year uses the rock ‘n roll classic “Surfin’ Bird” for… “Bird is the Word“! Check out some exclusive behind-the-scenes shenanigans with quotes from director/turkey Jeff Gill below…! A video like “Bird’s The Word” can’t just be shot willy nilly, so Jeff shot test footage with game JibJab artist Megan McShane in the turkey […]

Last week’s new releases! So much fun…

Not one, but TWO new videos from team JibJab & StoryBots last week! Thanksgiving hilarity ensues early with “The Bird’s the Word“! And The StoryBots Number Songs series continues with “The Number 4“!

3 Quick Q’s with the GRATE Megan Nairn!

Megan Nairn, or “Meegs” as we call her around JibJab HQ, is the brains behind our latest YOU ROCK eCard: “You Are Grate.” She kindly A’d a few Q’s about how how she came up with this fun bit o’ cheese… How did you come up with the idea of this charmingly “cheesy” card? Ate […]

JibJab and StoryBots’ big Oct. 20 releases!

A week ago today, JibJab and StoryBots both released a couple videos, one delightful (StoryBots’ color video “When It’s Black”) and one heeeeelarious (JibJab eCard “You Are Grate” [misspelled on purpose])!

Happy Ba-Ba-Ba-Birthday!

  We all know the “Happy Birthday” song, right? According to Wikipedia, it’s the most well-known song in the entire English language — even more than that Iggy Azalea song! It’s also been around for over one hundred years. That’s like the equivalent of ninety-four Kardashian marriages. We all certainly love a good classic melody, […]

“This Land” Turns Ten!

This week, JibJab’s seminal parody video “This Land” turned ten years old. The Atlantic even wrote a very thoughtful and interesting piece about it, which definitely makes us feel smarter about ourselves. Maybe we’ll get a smoking jacket and a pipe, come to think of it… Anyway, we think this is cause for a birthday […]

Say “Ha-plié Birthday” with Candle Ballet

Every little girl wants to be a ballerina at some point, right? Maybe every boy, too… And there’s nothing wrong with that, Dad! Ballerinas. Such style. Such grace. Such ridiculous costumes, when you really think about it. Well, we at JibJab have been pirouetting in our chairs to unveil our brand new birthday card, “Candle Ballet.” It’s […]

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching. Or Maybe Don’t.

There are some common phrases out there that really don’t make sense. “Sometimes you have to fight fire with fire.” Huh? Sounds like someone needs a lesson from Smokey the Bear. You aren’t preventing any fires if you think you can put a fire out with… more fire. Sometimes, you have to fight fire with water. “Shoot […]

Birthday Wishes? There’s an App for That.

Ain’t technology grand?  We all sometimes pine for the “olden days” when things were simpler, but the honest truth is that we didn’t have grumpy cat memes back then. And that, my friends, is a world in which we don’t want to live. Take this, for example. Who would have thought that there’d be a […]

Feeling Older? Don’t Worry: You’re Still Delicious.

Can you believe it, folks? Easter is over, Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and the year is flying by. It seems like just yesterday we were working on twerking elves and the 2013 Year in Review! Time just moves too fast. Speaking of which — that’s the very feeling we often experience when […]

Brand New eCard: Quiet Birthday!

This week, we have a brand new Starring You® birthday eCard that really makes some noise, animated by the fantastic Megan Nairn. Do you ever have those friends who just want to have a quiet, low-key birthday?  You say, “How about a party?” Their reaction: Just the mention of any sort of social interaction on their […]
