In Dedication to Dad

In praise of our pops we’d like to feature a few JibJab dads tonight, by way of our Starring You postables.  These fathers helped shape our staff of funnymen and funnywomen, so give it up for them!  You can make your own over at our Father’s Day category, with dozens of cards to choose from.

Batten down the Servers!

Our technicians have been scrambling in preparation for a potential mega load of traffic following Friday’s release of our new video “He’s Barack Obama”.   Just last week we had Mark, the master of all things server related, head to our secret server location where he helped to install more storage in preparation for the gathering […]

Written Up

Though we’ve yet to play court jester and premiere our upcoming political piece before the President, we’ve still had a few nice shout outs in the media this month.  Today the Los Angeles Times caught up with Scott Kirsner about his new book on digital businesses and we got a shout out thanks to Scott’s […]

No Dearth of Dad’s Day Stuff!

Father’s Day is this weekend, and even though we’re caught in a whirlwind of Obama related madness this week, your good pals at JibJab have not forgotten about dear old dad!  We’re really happy with how big our library is getting, and Father’s Day is a great example of the massive amount of material we’ve […]

Jarl’s in Charge

Typically, we like to use friends and family when we cast a secondary character in one of our Original videos.  For our upcoming Obama video, we needed to find someone in their 40/ 50s with a commanding physical presence to play a military General, and nobody from our immediate circle fit the bill.  So where […]

Brand New Look, Same JibJab Flavor

If you’re browsing around JibJab tonight, you may notice that our eCards and Everyday Fun sections have had a drastic new makeover!  We’ve been working for months to apply new features to the site and now that they’re up, we’re excited to offer areas that will be updated on a daily basis, pointing out the […]

Crunch Time

We’ve been working our rear ends off for our upcoming Obama video, trying to get the animation done in time to tweak and gear up for our big release (date and time TBA). We started keeping a big calendar on the wall at the beginning of the month, and it was going good… for a […]

Something Weird This Way Comes

JibJab friend and collaborator Weird Al Yankovic stopped by the studio today! We’ve grown a lot since we last collaborated with him in 2006 for the music video to “Do I Creep You Out” , so we gave him the grand tour and a sneak peek at our various top secret projects in development. On […]

Profile Pic Flix!

We doubled the size of our free profile picture library over the last month and one cool development has been the addition of some Starring You postables that pay tribute to the summer’s biggest popcorn flicks. You’ll be seeing more as the weeks go by, so keep checking back as the image count grows and […]

A Funny Guy, eh?

Andy, our brilliantly funny writer and Director of Development, works with artists and editors to produce dozens of projects for the site at a time. Pitching projects and writing scripts all day keeps him perennially buried under piles of outlines and half-baked ideas.  Literally. You can see his comedic mark all over the site, he’s […]

We’re Workin’ On It!

What are we working on?  Here’s a face you might recognize… Big updates within the next week!

Your Graduation Station

Graduation ceremonies are traditionally sprinkled throughout May and June, so in preparation we’ve revamped our collection of graduation eCards to include a bounty of new material.  We’ve packed each congratulation with smart humor for that smart grad, including a new song, some funny remixes and some great new castable art.  By the way, you can […]


Our product team has loaded up the development pipe with more new web features than you can shake a stick at. That means if you saw our Director of Development’s to-do list, you would want to crawl under a blanket and call out for your mommy. Does Chris do that? Heck no! In his spare […]

JibJab Moms

In tribute of our moms this Mother’s Day, we asked our staff to share some pictures of their moms to be honored in true JibJab style. Here’s to you, moms! You made us funny and we hope we’ve made you proud! All of these postables are up on our site, with loads of Mother’s Day […]

Shaking Up Starring You

Scribbling on the back of a napkin to express an idea is so 2008. Here, Phillip uses a napkin, sugar packs and salt and pepper shakers to express some thoughts he has on how to make casting Starring You a better user experience. (Of course, there was beer involved).
