Updating/Downloading The Star Spangled Banner

We revisited more than one piece for the Fourth of July this year…  in 2008, when we offered our collaboration with as an Independece Day eCard, it featured footage of presidents from the past century, sliced up to sing us a rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner”.  After a few years passed on our […]

Yucatan Guacamole Wagon!

JibJab’s Wagon Wednesdays have become so infamous that we were recently approached by our friends at Yucatan Guacamole with interest in having our wagon sponsored! The words “free guacamole” were too powerful to resist and today we had a party complete with mustaches, chips and music provided by the group.  We even live streamed it […]

An Awesome Addition and a Major Loss

We wanted our offices to reflect the awesomeness that Star Wars: Starring You has brought to our site, so we bestowed a challenge upon one of our craftiest co-workers. Devin was asked to create a mega sized Millennium Falcon to hang in our tech suite, and boy did he step up to the plate. Click […]

Cleveland Rocks!

We caught a Facebook fan last night posting about a JibJab mention on The Cleveland Show and we had to hunt it down. Apparently Cleveland Brown is a fan of our work. *huffs fingernails* Thanks for the shout out Cleveland! By the way, we added in the “spinner” with Cleveland’s voice.

Rocking Lunch with NELSON!

Our staff has an addiction to rock star lifestyle, we’re willing to admit it, especially looking back at all the guitar shredding moments that we’ve had over the last year. So when legendary rockers like the guys from Nelson call us up, we heed the call.  We were excited to find out that they were […]

Have you tuned into Live with Regis and Kelly this week?  If you have, chances are you’ve seen JibJab’s animated dances featured on the show, a cameo we are extremely excited about! The people at Regis and Kelly were radical enough to approach us about providing some background animation for their *takes a deep breath* […]

Valentine’s Day with the Ukulady!

Last year we had the pleasure of meeting Thessaly Lerner (alias: the UkuLady). With her syrupy sweet voice, tender ukulele strumming and completely insane lyrics, she made herself a hit on YouTube and beyond… thusly a collaboration was in order! She wrote us some particularly quirky songs for birthdays, graduation and anniversaries, and came down […]

And now presenting…

The cutest iteration of the phrase “JibJab” to ever be uttered. /Cutie courtesy of Anthony, JibJab flex developer and father!

At the YouTube Roundtable

As amazing the Los Angeles area is for finding and working with talent, it isn’t known for being the hub of all things internet related. That distinction goes to the cities surrounding the San Francisco bay, and we are constantly traveling that way to attend conferences and discuss innovations in the online world so that […]

Transforming Teams

We thought it was pretty awesome when self proclaimed news junkie Mike Bucc from Albany sent his favorite local TV news crew a Monster Mash starring the televised team… but wouldn’t you know it, they showed the video on the news that night and gave him a shout out!  Double awesome!  Since this cool happenstance, […]
